As the crickets’ soft autumn hum
is to us
so are we to the trees
as are they
to the rocks and the hills.
– Gary Snyder
Join us for a rolling series of spontaneous conversations with cultural ecologist David Abram and Henry Shukman exploring the sacredness of our human inter-being with the rest of nature.
Each dialog…a wandering inquiry into the ecology of perception; a contemplative exploration of the earth that breathes at the heart of language…

David Abram – cultural ecologist, geo-philosopher, and performance artist – is the author of Becoming Animal and The Spell of the Sensuous. Hailed as “revolutionary” by the Los Angeles Times, as “daring” and “truly original” by Science, David’s writings have catalyzed the emergence of several new disciplines, including the burgeoning field of Ecopsychology. A recipient of the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction, Dr. Abram recently held the international Arne Naess Chair in Global Justice and Ecology at the University of Oslo. He is co-founder and director of the Alliance for Wild Ethics (AWE), and is hopelessly in love with aspen trees.
