Joanna Macy A Wild Love for the World
A Buddhist philosopher of ecology, Joanna Macy says we are at a pivotal moment in history with the possibility to unravel or create a life-sustaining human society. Now entering her 90s, Macy has lived adventurously by any definition. She worked with the CIA in Cold War Europe and the Peace Corps in post-colonial India and was an early environmental activist. She brings a poetic and spiritual sensibility to her work thatâ€™s reflected in her translations of the early-20th-century poet Rainer Maria Rilke. We take that poetry as a lens on her wisdom on the great dramas of our time: ecological, political, personal. Joanna Macy is an activist, author, and a scholar of Buddhism, systems thinking, and deep ecology. Her 13 books include translations of Rilkeâ€™s â€œBook of Hours: Love Poems to God,â€ â€œA Year with Rilke,â€ and â€œIn Praise of Mortality.â€ She is the root teacher of the Work That Reconnects, a framework and workshop for personal and social change. Her new translation of Rilkeâ€™s â€œLetters to a Young Poet,â€ together with Anita Barrows, is upcoming in 2020. Find the transcript for this show at onbeing.org.

Earth's Crisis: On the Edge of the Roof (from the Archives)
Earth's Crisis: On the Edge of the Roof (from the Archives) - NOTE: Due to the unusually windy and cold weather, we had to cancel class on January 30, 2019. Tara selected this talk from the archives for the podcast as especially appropriate. This talk views the ecological dis-ease of our planet through the lens of our evolutionary unfolding. We explore the egoic trance that has precipitated the destruction of our environment, and the inner practices of presence that enable us to respond from love and wisdom.
