About The Event

*Note: The content portion of these sessions will be recorded. Even if you cannot make it to both sessions, please feel free to register and review the recording later. 

 Within many secular and religious communities comprising the environmental movement, Catholic priest Thomas Berry (1914-2009) is regarded as a visionary whose teachings beautifully argue why humanity is called to care for the earth. 

 Berry summed up his perspective about the linkage between human experience and nature as: "The universe, the solar system, and planet Earth in themselves and in their evolutionary emergence constitute for the human community the primary revelation of that ultimate mystery whence all things emerge into being." 

 In the first session (60 min) of this two part series, you'll get an introduction to the man and his theology. 

In the 2nd session (90 min) you'll get to meet Sr. Gail Worcelo who co-founded the Green Mountain Monastery (GMM) with Berry and others in 1999. GMM is a community of Catholic sisters who are committed to "Earth healing and protection within the Eco-Zoic era." The phrase refers to an emerging era where we learn to live as mutually enhancing members of a "Single Sacred Community."  

Dan Quinlan is recently retired, but worked for Lumunos as the Business and Operations Director for many years. He continues to lead the small environmental non-profit SolaVida.org, and remains an avid believer in the power of communities like Lumunos to foster a just, compassionate, and fact-driven world. 

 Sr. Gail Worcelo splits her time between life at the GMM monastery and teaching and leading retreats and programs around the world on themes related to deepening our relationship with the entire sacred community of life and understanding our role in the universe story.
