Wonderful Short Video by Joanna Macy: “Climate Crisis As Spiritual Path”

Kind friends and family,

I am sending you a link to a 20 minute video entitled, “Climate Crisis As Spiritual Path,” which I just received from filmmakers Anne Macksound and John Ankele (Old Dog Documentaries). They interviewed me in 2013 for a film they released in 2014, entitled: “The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community.”

In her email to me, Anne wrote: “You gave us a splendid interview and much of what you said did not appear in the film, but as John was reviewing the entire interview recently, he realized that it’s filled with things that are even more pressing now than when you said them in 2013. So we have put together a 20 minute video and called it: CLIMATE CRISIS AS SPIRITUAL PATH.  We think that it answers the most important and painful questions of our time, for example:
How can we live our lives fully, with inner peace and courage (and even joy) as we confront a world that is rapidly destroying itself? We are trying to share this message (at no cost) with as many people and groups as possible, and we are hoping that you can help us spread the word by sharing it on your website and among your many contacts – asking them to do the same. We are good filmmakers, but we are not very good at distributing our work, and this short video, coming in these troubled times, feels as if it might be the most important work we have done since we launched Old Dog Documentaries in 1987.

Please take a look: https://vimeo.com/588455489

My own watching of the video prompted me to start sending it to everyone I know, including each of you! I hope you will be moved to share it widely.
