“… when we speak, the world is speaking through us …“
Description: This is the first in a three-part series of spontaneous conversations between Henry and David Abram. David is a cultural ecologist, geo-philosopher, and performance artist and the author of Becoming Animal and The Spell of the Sensuous. His writings have catalyzed the emergence of several new disciplines, including the burgeoning field of Ecopsychology. He is a recipient of the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction, recently held the international Arne Naess Chair in Global Justice and Ecology at the University of Oslo, and is the co-founder and director of the Alliance for Wild Ethics (AWE). Henry and David will explore the sacredness of our human inter-being with the rest of nature. The general theme of part one is the ecology of language—an exploration of how it is that when we speak, the world is speaking through us. This beautiful and inspiring conversation begins with a reading from Becoming Animal and unfolds in joy and wonder—in the wind, in story and in poetry.
