We know our planet is in trouble and we’re seeing direct effects on human heath as a result. It’s estimated that we have fewer than 60 harvests left in our world’s soil and that our oceans will be 70 percent more acidic in just 30 years. These aren’t doomsday prophecies—this is our realistic future if we don’t act now.
Author Erin McMorrow believes that we can heal our planet by restoring our natural connection with the earth and the divine feminine. Through her work and her writing, Dr. McMorrow teaches us how to transform ourselves, our socioeconomic systems, and the environment that sustains us by aligning with the natural cycles of the earth. In her latest book, Grounded, she explores both the ecological and spiritual basis of our existing climate crises—including what’s happening with our soil and carbon cycles—sharing a critical framework for understanding how we’ve gotten into our current state.
Join renegade economist Della Z Duncan for a conversation with Dr. McMorrow as she shares wisdom and tools to initiate a transformation to save our soils and our souls.
