This Sunday, we welcome Ervin Laszlo, one of the most fascinating men of our time. His most recent literary contribution is the book Thomas Berry, Dreamer of the Earth: The Spiritual Ecology of the Father of Environmentalism, an anthology with essays from leading philosophers, scientists, and spiritual visionaries–including Matthew Fox, Joanna Macy, Duane Elgin, Sean Esbjörn-Hargens, and Allan Combs–on the genius of Thomas Berry’s work and his quest to resolve our global ecological and spiritual challenges, as well as a little-known but essential essay by Berry himself. Revealing Berry’s insights as far ahead of their time, these essays reiterate the radical nature of his ideas and the urgency of his most important conclusion: that money and technology cannot solve our problems, rather, we must reestablish the indigenous connection with universal consciousness and return to our fundamental spontaneous nature–still evident in our dreams–in order to navigate our ecological challenges successfully.
