Dr. Sailesh Rao, Sunday, October 1, 2017 – 12:30-1:30 PM
Talk and lively discussion – Vegan Snacks will be served
Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to hear Dr. Sailesh Rao share his hopeful, Gandhi-inspired message about what we can each do to heal the earth. He is founder of ClimateHealers.Org. and author of Carbon Dharma and Carbon Yoga. Sailesh wrote, “…humans have now built a global industrial civilization around an unsustainable, ecological Ponzi scheme that’s now teetering on the brink of collapse.” But he believes we can bring the earth back from the brink. You will leave his talk with fresh optimism and new ideas for being part of the healing.
“The Great Transition is the metamorphosis of the global industrial civilization from its current domination/control relating “Caterpillar” phase to the partnership/respect relating “Butterfly” phase. In the talk, Dr. Rao presents compelling factual reasons why Veganism is foundational for the Butterfly phase and why the Great Transition is bound to occur within the next 9 years, by 2026.”
