Join author Eileen Crist to envision an eco-centric path towards a future where all living beings may thrive. Together, we will contemplate the current ecological crises of Earth, and how they are linked to an implicit, often unquestioned view of human supremacy above other living beings.
Attendees are encouraged to read The Sun Interview “Our Great Reckoning” prior to the event. All are welcome to submit advance questions and comments by April 21 to sophi[at]newildernesstrust.org. The event will begin with a reflection by Eileen on guest’s submissions, followed by a group discussion and conversation.
