The Ecological Crisis: Taking Responsibility and Cultivating Hope

Joanna Macy In a joint venture between The Sanville Institute and TPI, this special event is a multi-disciplinary conversation about the psychological causes and effects of the ecological crisis. The day will include a dramatic reading of a stageplay written and performed by Naomi Newman, a paper presented by psychotherapist Terri Rubinstein on understanding and healing alienation from oneself, from others and from the natural world, and a talk and Q&A discussion with nationally recognized eco-philosopher Joanna Macy.

Joanna Macy, PhD, is a scholar of Buddhism, systems thinking and deep ecology. A respected voice in movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with learning from five decades of activism. As the root teacher of the Work That Reconnects, she has created a ground-breaking theoretical framework for personal and social change, as well as a powerful workshop methodology for its application.
