“There’s nothing that can happen that will ever separate me from the living body of earth.”
Back in a hot day October afternoon, Emergence Magazine interviewed Joanna Macy.
In this interview, Buddhist eco-philosopher and author Joanna Macy discusses her life and work. From her anti-nuclear activism in the late 60’s to her work with deep ecology, Joanna expresses the need to live within an ethic of care for the earth.

Jared Blumenfeld talks with the Buddhist author, Joanna Macy, about healing our relationship with the earth. The show examines the total amount of carbon pollution humans have emitted and Brenna Sheldon ant Jared chat about hiking from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. (Interview with Joanna starts at 16:25).
Tami Simon of Sounds True speaks with Joanna about hope in times of chaos and dissolution, as well as how hope is something we do rather than just feel. They consider apathy as a refusal to face the inevitability of suffering and why the state of the environment can be especially heartbreaking. Finally, Tami and Joanna talk about our relationship with the earth as a natural birthright—one that is actually the source of all our energy and joy. (66 minutes)
