Karen Armstrong: Sacred Nature
In conversation with Toby Mundy
Sunday 12 June, 1:30-2:30pm
Baillie Gifford Big Tent
One of the world’s leading authorities on spiritual affairs discusses how to rekindle our divine bond with nature.
Drawing on the wisdom of the world’s religious traditions, Karen Armstrong argues that if we want to avert environmental catastrophe we need to think and feel differently about the natural world. Taking themes that have been central to the world’s religious traditions — from gratitude and compassion to sacrifice and non-violence — Armstrong offers practical steps to help us develop a new mindset to reconnect with nature.
