Starhawk, the internationally renowned author and global justice activist, will be speaking on Thursday, (March 7) from 7-9pm at the Unitarian Universalist Society: East, at 153 Vernon Street West in Manchester. In this rare Connecticut appearance, Starhawk will address how our current environmental crises have emerged from the slow unraveling of connections between body, mind, spirit and the earth. She will discuss her approaches to reweaving these broken connections. Suggested is donation $5
In her highly acclaimed work, whether writing books, doing social activism, making films or teaching, Starhawk traces the connections between the exploitation of the earth and our deep assumptions about power. “Assaults on our ability to sustain the life support systems of the Earth have reached crisis proportions. Our social and governmental institutions seem unable to cope with global warming and environmental deterioration. To address this brokenness, we need to invoke a deeper source of power, a power-from-within.”
Starhawk is the author or coauthor of twelve books, including The Spiral Dance, The Fifth Sacred Thing, and The Earth Path. Her latest is The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups. She is a veteran of progressive movements, from anti-war to anti-nukes; she is a highly influential voice in the revival of earth-based spirituality and Goddess religion in the United States and internationally. (Her website is www.starhawk.org.)
