*/Sustainability and Spirituality/*

	/"Sustainability is the
possibility that human
and other life will flourish
on the planet forever."

- John R. Ehrenfeld/


/At our May Forum we dig down to the roots of our unsustainable society. 
There we find human behavior springing from an outdated worldview, 
producing increasingly bitter fruit.
Do our current efforts, in the name of 'sustainability', amount to 
plucking the leaves of the weeds - as Ehrenfeld contends, merely 
reducing unsustainability?

Can we expect flourishing when a drive for perpetual growth feeds on 
finite terrestrial resources, or do we need to dig again, to tend to the 
soil - and the soul, to nurture culture, to nourish flourishing? Is 
sustainability a spiritual movement?

Join us as we examine 'sustainability' from a philosophical perspective, 
in conversation with two leading thinkers who are urging us to attend to 
making ourselves whole, so that we may take care of the world.

//
"...the healing and unification of
our attention is the true pay dirt
behind the work of sustainability."

- Justin V. Good
