June 24: Earth Care Meeting: Hope, Fear and Being an Eco-Pilgrim with Kate Davies

June 24: Earth Care Meeting: Hope, Fear and Being an Eco-Pilgrim with Kate Davies

Saturday, June 24, 2023, 8:30 – 10:00 am
on Zoom

Together, we will explore the idea and experiences of being an eco-pilgrim in a world of climate disruption, growing social inequalities and pollution. Now, more than ever, we need a realistic sense of hope that is not based on attaining specific goals and results anytime soon. Instead, we need a more robust hope that is based on compassion, a deep trust in whatever happens, and the human capacity to respond wisely and skillfully.

Kate Davies is a meditation teacher, author, and environmentalist. She leads the Whidbey Island Insight Meditation Group and is a regular guest teacher at the Bellingham Insight Meditation Society. She is also a mentor in the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program and the Power of Awareness Program, both taught by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.

During her career, she developed and managed Toronto’s Environmental Protection Office in Canada and later established an environmental policy consultancy which provided services to international agencies and the Canadian federal government. From 2002-2017, she taught in the Center for Creative Change at Antioch University, serving as its director from 2007-2010.

Her first book, The Rise of the US Environmental Health Movement was chosen as one of the top ten books on sustainability published in 2013, and her second book, Intrinsic Hope: Living Courageously in Troubled Times, won the Grand Prize of the 2019 Nautilus Book Awards.
