Jim Blackburn on the Environment

A Spiritual Quest: Enough? Enough!
Tuesday, September 30
7:00 p.m.

With climate change promising massive ecological disruptions, pioneer environmental attorney Jim Blackburn will offer observations about living things, our connectedness to them and our need to take effective action soon. Fundamental to this discourse is the concept of ENOUGH, a theme that will be woven through the presentation. Blackburn will introduce the concept of CONNECTUALITY and its power to transform our thinking, perception and will to act. Is some form of environmental triage our destiny or can we find the will to take action to combine economic and ecologic visions and recover our lost spirituality? Blackburn’s presentation of “A Spiritual Quest” will address these issues and more.
