Garrison Institute Forum: Pathways to Planetary Health With Jonathan F.P. Rose & Joanna Macy

Join Joanna Macy in a generative Pathways to Planetary Health Forum discussion about the critical ecological, social and economic issues of our time.

Garrison Institute presents a rare conversation with Joanna Macy, exploring our relationship to the earth and the pathways to healing during this critical time. As Macy has asked, “How can I be fully present to my world–present enough to rejoice and be useful–when we as a species are destroying it?” Drawing on her work at the intersection of Buddhist thought and contemporary science, she will examine how to transform despair and apathy into constructive, collaborative action. 

Joanna will be in conversation with Jonathan F.P. Rose, Co-Founder of the Garrison Institute. These interactive sessions aim to expand our understanding around how each of us can play a role in supporting a regenerative, just and prosperous world, nurturing the health and well-being of all of life.

This live webinar will be conducted on Zoom at 2:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, January 14. The webinar link will be emailed to participants within twenty-four hours of your registration. Registration for this live webinar closes at 1:00 p.m. ET on January 14. Please note that participation in the live webinar on Zoom is limited to the first 1,000 attendees.

Your support matters. Our vision for a more just, compassionate world has never felt more urgent. While we cannot share physical space together, we remain committed to a shared practice of social and spiritual care. We are thankful for the opportunity to create a virtual sanctuary during this time of physical distancing. If you feel called to support our work, we welcome your tax-deductible contribution toward our efforts. If you have any questions about this event, please contact us at events@garrisoninstitute.org.
