Continuing Studies hosts scholar and activist, Joanna Macy, Aug. 2

Join us for The Time of Our Lives: Enlarging the Frame – an evening talk with Joanna Macy on Thursday, Aug. 2, 7-9 p.m.

Joanna Macy is a leading voice in movements for peace, justice, and a safe environment. Interweaving her scholarship and four decades of activism, she has created both a ground-breaking theoretical framework for a new paradigm of personal and social change, and a powerful workshop methodology for its application. Her wide-ranging work addresses psychological and spiritual issues of the nuclear age, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and contemporary science.

The upcoming Intensive in the Work That Reconnects with Joanna Macy is now full, but you still have a chance to spend time with this remarkable woman and society shifter. Join us for The Time of Our Lives: Enlarging the Frame – an evening talk with Joanna Macy on Thursday, August 2, 7-9 p.m. Cost: $20, plus applicable fees (10% discount for RRU staff, students, faculty and alumni). Contact Continuing Studies, x4801, for more information or to register.

Confirming an intuitive sense I’ve always felt for the interconnectedness of all things, this doctrine has provided me ways to understand the intricate web of co-arising that links one being with all other beings, and to apprehend the reciprocities between thought and action, self and universe.  ~ Joanna Macy
