Love Letters to the Milky Way: Connecting Cosmology, Justice, and Creativity with Drew Dellinger, PhD

About the Presentation

If all things are connected by invisible threads, what are the connections between ecology, social justice, poetry, and psychology? How can we weave these interrelated threads into an energizing vision that unites the personal and global? How can we use the power of art, the power of story, and the skills of scholarship to address the challenges and possibilities of our historical moment?

In this talk and poetry reading, Drew Dellinger will explore the connection-making activity that is the creative process, and the ways in which art, justice, and cosmology call us to experiences of interrelatedness and non-duality.
