Event Details

How can we reimagine the framing, tactics, and goals we employ in our journey to heal from ecological destruction?

Join renowned author and philosopher Charles Eisenstein who will discuss his new book, Climate: A New Story, in which he advocates for expanding our exclusive focus on carbon emissions to see the broader picture beyond our short-sighted and incomplete approach.

Eisenstein details how the quantification of the natural world leads to a lack of integration and our “fight” mentality. The rivers, forests, and creatures of the natural and material world are sacred and valuable in their own right, not simply for carbon credits or preventing the extinction of one species versus another.

After all, when you ask someone why they first became an environmentalist, they’re likely to point to the river they played in, the ocean they visited, the wild animals they observed, or the trees they climbed when they were a kid. This refocusing away from impending catastrophe and our inevitable doom cultivates meaningful emotional and psychological connections and provides real, actionable steps to caring for the earth.

Freeing ourselves from a war mentality and seeing the bigger picture of how everything from prison reform to having the whales can contribute to our planetary ecological health, we resist reflexive postures of solution and blame and reach toward the deep place where commitment lives.

Climate: A New Story will be available for sale, and Eisenstein will be signing books after the event.

PLEASE NOTE: Price is self-determined. Pay an amount that reflects your feeling of value, gratitude, and desire to support the work, consistent with your financial means. If that amount is zero, we welcome you too.
