Gaia and the Tree of Life

Notice: Sorry, online booking for this event has now closed.

Date: Saturday 7th January 2023 Location: Online
Start time: 5:30pm End time: 7:30pm Type: Webinar

The Tree of Life is an ancient image that comes to us from deep within psyche.  It has appeared across different cultures and throughout the ages. It has enabled many individuals to realise that their true happiness is inseparable from the well-being and health of nature, of Gaia, of our living earth.

Greek myths tell us that Gaia was the first born of primordial Chaos and that she  gave birth to the starry heavens and then to all the beings here on earth. She is the mother of us all, including the Tree of Life.

In this talk we explore whether the power of the myths and images of Gaia and The Tree of Life can help us harness the imaginative possibilities in the contemporary sciences of Gaia to solve our terrible contemporary global crisis.  We enquire whether this might enable us to embed ourselves in  the living body of our sacred animate earth, open to its richness and ready to act in service of all her beings, peacefully and democratically.
