A Future We Can Love: How We Can Reverse the Climate Crisis with the Power of Our Hearts and Minds

In Person Author Event
* Saturday., September 23, 4:00 pm

Wisdom and guidance to face the climate emergency from the most influential spiritual and environmental leaders of our time.

A Future We Can Love shares the words of these two great figures, generations apart, bringing them into dialogue with cutting-edge climate scientists, activists, and spiritual leaders to start a world-changing conversation.

Readers embark on a four-part journey toward active hope in the face of the climate crisis: from knowledge of climate science through the capacity for change, to the will that is needed and the actions we can take.

The book will help you:

  • use interdependence as a lens for understanding both the climate crisis and its solutions
  • clarify why feedback loops leave us no time to wait on climate action
  • metabolize climate anxiety, grief, or burnout into useful energy
  • develop your own rituals and practices for connecting to Earth and renewing hope
  • overcome common obstacles to speaking and acting clearly on behalf of the human and wild communities most affected by the climate crisis

Susan Bauer-Wu is an organizational leader, clinical scientist, and mindfulness teacher whose lifework has been dedicated to alleviating suffering and fostering well-being through contemplative wisdom. She is the president of the Mind & Life Institute and previously was the Kluge professor of contemplative end-of-life care at the University of Virginia.

She is an avid gardener and hiker who is nourished by trees and animals and awed by our reciprocal connection with nature. She is deeply committed to the care of our planet and to policies and personal actions that will ensure a future we can love for our children and grandchildren.

She lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, and is also the author of Leaves Falling Gently.
