Multicultural Women Explore Social and Ecological Healing
Three of the diverse contributors to the new anthology, Ecological and Social Healing: Multicultural Women's Voices, explore how being situated between ecological and social justice movements has opened them up to new understandings and new ways of teaching and leading. They will share "re-storying" narratives that cross boundaries of place, history, trauma and worldview to trigger compassion and healing. With Jeanine Canty, Professor and Chair of Environmental Studies, Naropa University; Nina Simons, Bioneers co-founder, founding Director of Everywoman's Leadership program; and Anita Sanchez, Transformational Leadership Council. The panel dialogue will be followed by a book signing.

Using Pattern Mind to Reweave the Web of Life

We make the world with our minds. The view we bring determines not only how we interpret our experience, but the actions we take based upon those interpretations. Seeing and treating this living creation as if it were a machine, we have made it act like one, one that is prone to entropy, falls apart and has a limited life span. Focusing on the stuff of the world we have missed the fact that life is exchange, it occurs between things. Life is movement and processes and can only be seen and understood as patterns. Using the traditional mind of the tracker, navigator, wildcrafter, singer, dancer, and human being we can relearn to see, live in, and reweave the living world that is our birthright. This is a Pattern Mind.
