February Gaian Conversation: How do we spread the Gaian Way? (Tuesday, 2/14 at 7pm ET)

Without deeper connection to and understanding of our dependence on Gaia, will we ever truly shift from being a parasitic species to a symbiotic one? If a Gaian philosophy can help in this, is there a way we can help spread that and grow the Gaian Community? Please join this conversation to discuss this (and come with ideas on how we can grow the community in 2022).

March Gaian Conversation: Living the Gap between the Knowable and the Unknowable (Time TBD)

It’s natural to lean toward what is tangible, quantifiable, and knowable and comfortably work within that (such as focusing on climate change instead of the messy mix of interacting ecological crises we’re grappling with). But much of our understanding of Gaia is cloudy, and beyond our current state of scientific comprehension. And yet, what happens to Gaia is real, and our actions—both in harming and healing Gaia—have real outcomes. This month we’ll discuss: How do we navigate this uncertainty—whether through action, mindfulness, education, community, or other ways. Robert “Doc” Hall, chairman of the Compression Institute, will kick off the conversation. Want to join? Fill out this doodle poll to help set the time and date.
