Plan now to join us this fall for a rare and spirited evening of conversation with David Abram of storytelling, wonder, and the untamed magic that moves between the body and the breathing earth.
David Abram, cultural ecologist, wild philosopher and author, has been described as "revolutionary" by the Los Angeles Times, “daring” and “truly original” by Science, and he has been named by the Utne Reader as one of a hundred visionaries currently transforming the world. An award-winning author of Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology and The Spell of the Sensuous, David’s writing helped catalyze the burgeoning field of ecopsychology.
His work engages the ecological depths of the imagination, exploring the ways in which sensory experience, poetics, and wonder inform our relation with the animate earth. David’s essays on the cultural causes and consequences of environmental disarray appear often in such journals as Shambhala Sun, Orion, Adbusters, Environmental Ethics, Biosemiotics, Parabola, andThe Ecologist, as well as in many anthologies in a host of fields. David lives with his family in northern New Mexico.
