A Time for Gaia
Free Tele-lecture by David Spangler

In 1979, British scientist James Lovelock published his now-classic book, Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth. In it, he laid out his evidence for viewing the planet itself as a living organism, whom he called Gaia after the Greek goddess of the Earth. Though initially met with skepticism by the scientific community, further evidence later confirmed Lovelock’s hypothesis, leading to the Gaia Theory.
This idea, much to Lovelock’s initial surprise, had been widely accepted and adopted by people in the environmental and spiritual movements ever since the Eighties. In so doing, they are harkening back to our ancestors who universally recognized the Earth as a living being.
Now we enter a time when understanding Gaia and, more importantly, learning to live in collaboration and harmony with this planetary life, becomes more essential than ever. In the face of climate change, it may even be a key to our survival as a civilization. We need to know the Gaian life in which we are immersed. We need, in the words of the forthcoming Lorian conference, to become Gaianeers.
What this means and how we might go about this is the topic for David Spangler’s live talk, introducing the ideas that will be more deeply explored in the Gaineering Conference, July 28-30, 2017. Link to the Recording will be available to all who register for the teleclass after the event.
If ever there were a time for Gaia to come to the forefront of our awareness as individuals and as a society, this is it. Please join us for this important talk and then take part in the conference to discover how you can be a Gaianeer.
