Climate — Inside and Out
A multimedia journey to authentic hope. A transformed relationship to a living Earth.
About this Course
Climate — Inside and Out is a filmed series that takes you on an intentional tour through the main concepts of my book, Climate — A New Story, accompanied by all my past and ongoing essays on ecology and earth healing. It portrays the ecological crisis as a consequence of civilization’s defining narratives, which undergird our politics, our policies, our hope and our despair. It describes and seeks to accelerate a change in those narratives that calls us into a new-and-ancient relationship to our home.
This series will be helpful to anyone…
- Who is wary of the reduction of ecological health to a matter of greenhouse gases
- Who senses that both sides in the intensely polarized issue are missing something important
- Who is seeking to identify a spiritual dimension to the ecological crisis
- Who senses that climate change is offering humanity an initiation far beyond finding a different fuel source to power business-as-usual
- Who seeks authentic hope that does not deny the magnitude of the crisis.
This Series Includes:
- A sequence of 26 videos correlated to the chapters of Climate — A New Story
- Downloadable audio version
- Transcripts of the video series
- Book Study Guide with chapter notes and questions correlated to the video
