When Fr. Richard Rohr founded CAC in 1987, he believed that people need both action and contemplation to have a whole spiritual journey. This month our We Conspire series explores the opportunities and challenges the and presents in our own lives.
Dr. Vandana Shiva is an Indian scholar, environmental activist, food sovereignty advocate, ecofeminist, anti-globalization author, and a tireless defender of the environment. In this 11-minute TedX Talk from 2012, she explores ideas of non-separation between nature and humanity, inviting us to ask “Can you imagine the deepest love for the forests bringing about change through a totally non-violent movement?”
