Gaia: Then and Now - The Mythopoetics of Climate Change
made possible by a generous grant from the Germanacos Foundation
Gaia: Then and Now is a series of online events presenting a way of knowing essential truths about the earth and climate change through the exploration of archetypal, symbolic images. The series has been designed with an eye towards moving back and forth between the ancient and contemporary stories about the human relationship to Gaia. The first season of webinars was held from January-June of 2022. Recordings of these events can be found below.
