Human + Nature Connection

The harvest of the modern age is a surplus of problems from individual ones such as depression, poor health, and isolation, to global ones such as climate change, over-consumption and unsupportable population growth.

The only commonality between them is that they appear to be unsolvable.

However, there is another link that may point to the solution – the fact that they are interdependent to each other.

The Human + Nature Connection presents the film “Awakening the Dreamer Changing The Dream,” from 7-8:30 p.m. Oct. 16 at Rawlings Library Bret Kelly room. This film was developed by the Pachamama Alliance, a partnership between Achuar people, indigenous to the Amazon Rainforest, and western activists in hopes of bringing forth “an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence” on earth.

The film is the basis for a symposium that has been shown in over 60 countries in 13 different languages.

It examines the current health of the planet and the people that inhabit it and offers hope for a reawakened kinship between the two.

The Human + Nature Connection works heighten awareness of the impact of our daily choices as well as to discover ways to enhance individual and planetary health.
