author of Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth
Llewellyn Vaughan Lee - Spiritual Ecology
Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee spoke about his new book, Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth. For the past few years he has been writing and lecturing about the need for a spiritual response to our present ecological crisis. Following this he has recently compiled the book, which is collection of essays by different spiritual teachers , scientists, Indigenous leaders, and others articulating this pressing need.
Our present ecological crisis is undeniably the greatest man-made disaster this planet has ever faced—its accelerating climate change, species depletion, pollution and acidification of the oceans. A central but rarely addressed aspect of this crisis is our forgetfulness of the sacred nature of creation, and how this affects our relationship to the environment.
Only when we remember what is sacred can we bring true understanding to our present predicament. This talk will explore this most pressing need of our time: how we are facing not just a physical ecological crisis but also a spiritual crisis, one that demands a spiritual response from each of us.
The talk will be followed by time for questions. Tea and refreshments will be provided.
