”Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, a mother, and a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings—asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass—offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices. In a rich braid of reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our own gifts in return,” -Milkweed Press
This is an extrodinary book, and I’m thrilled to bring it to the studio to discuss, unpack Kimmerer’s work.
We will be discussing this at an auspicious time before the American Thanksgiving Holiday
This session is free and open to all November 11th 1-3:30p
