PRATI Reconnections Webinar Series: Psychedelics and Climate Change in the Great Turning with Jamie Harvie
Hosted by Jamie Harvie
Psychedelics and Climate Change in the Great Turning: Sacred Lessons From Plant Teachers and Our Planet Teacher
Join us Thursday, September 29th at 7:00 PM MST for this one-hour interactive webinar in which we will explore the intersectionality of plant medicine wisdom and core ecological principles. This conversation, led by PRATI Executive Director Jamie Harvie, will offer tools and approaches as foundation support for climate mitigation, inner healing, and transformation, and provide important insight into the holistic interrelationship between our inner and outer worlds.
The phrase “the great turning” comes from the work of environmental activist and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy and is a name for the shift from the destructive industrial growth society to a life-sustaining community. In this conversation, we will explore the role that psychedelics play in this ecological shift and how we can work together to meet our needs while living in harmony with the world.
