About the event
By drawing on traditional eco-philosophies and Buddhist wisdom, Erik Jampa Andersson offers an approach to our environmental emergency that will make us rethink the very nature of our existence on this incredible planet. Looking at the climate catastrophe through the framework of disease, Unseen Beings examines our ecological diagnosis, its historical causes and conditions and, crucially, its much-needed treatment. It explores how and why we constructed a human-centric worldview and amazing recent discoveries around non-human intelligence. It also looks at how religious traditions have dealt with questions of nature, sentience and ecology critical connections between human health and environmental health.
