Becoming the Other: Feeling into the Life of a Non-Human Being

A Conservation Conversation with Dr. Susan Eirich  |  August 23, 2017 (Note Date Change) Join Dr. Susan Eirich for the fourth in our series of online video discussions for members of the Earthfire community, "How Connecting with An Animal Can Help Us Heal the Earth.” This month’s theme is “Becoming the Other: Feeling into the Life of a Non-Human Being.” Albert Einstein once said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” That holds true for our relationship with wild animals and our living Earth. One way we can shift our thinking is to begin to see the world through the eyes of other species—and even through the eyes of an...

How Connecting with an Animal Can Help Us Heal the Earth, Part 3

View our July 26 live online video Conservation Conversation with Dr. Susan Eirich, How Connecting with an Animal Can Help Us Heal the Earth. This month, we will be going deeper into one of the key questions we explored during our May and June Conversations: When we connect with non-human species, we have the opportunity to integrate their unique intelligences and wisdoms into our journey forward. How can the intelligence of a wild animal be used to help us live sustainably and heal the Earth? What can we do in our daily life? In this conversation, we will share what we are doing to achieve this. Earthfire community members have been thrilled by this global conversation. “I loved the...

Beauty Heals

We need to radically reverse how we value things. Instead of seeing beauty as a nice sideline in one’s life, or in the world, to give it real weight in our thinking and value systems.

Beauty gives a sense of order to disorder, harmony instead of dissonance. As we tune to beauty our brains change, calm and we make better decisions, personally, culturally and environmentally. Join Dr. Susan Eirich, Earthfire founder, to explore how can we make this value and perception switch. Sorry, registration is closed. Please sign up for...

Rethinking Our Journey to Earthly Dominance and Beyond

Join us for a fascinating, provocative “big” journey through human history with Jon Schwartz.  Explore where we came from, what tipping points brought us to where we are, and where we are empowered to go from here. We will reflect on various milestones of human development - our achievements and our "oops!" moments alike - and how each pivot led us to who we are today.  From there, we'll explore "what's next" for humanity  and we'll shatter the myth that "there's nothing we can do" to shift our direction  from life endangerment to life preservation. Sorry, registration is closed. Please sign up for future Conversation...

Ecological Identity and Our Personal Journeys

Regardless of whether we live in the city or deep in the country, regardless of if we work outdoors or inside, we each have an ecological identity which forms the basis of how we see ourselves in relation to the world around us. These identities were formed and are nurtured by many influences and create the fabric of how we interact with this earth and its inhabitants. Join our staff for this seminar exploring the formation of ecological identity, the ways it manifests in our lives, and how we can continue to develop and deepen our personal sense of our ecological selves in relation to the wild animals of our communities. Sorry, registration is closed. Please sign up for future...


“How Connecting with An Animal Can Help Us Heal the Earth” Continued

We continued our in-depth, heartfelt conversation from May, contemplating some key questions that arose in the previous conversation: • When we say, “all life is sacred,” what does it mean for how we live? • How do we connect with animals and nature?  What is our story? • How can we support each other on our journey to healing our connection with wildlife and nature?
