Matthew explores the capacity for our species to take this occasion of the crisis Mother Earth finds herself in to reinvent our ways of living and working on this planet. As the eco philosopher says, “hope is a verb with the sleeves rolled up.” Clearly the Earth is a sacred Temple and we aren’t treating it as wonderfully as it deserves and our future sustainability requires.
In this time of wars and unprecedented challenge to the planet from human-induced climate change, how will humans integrate the teachings about the awesome universe in a way that empowers our joy and compassion? Matthew talks about what it takes to be spiritual warriors on behalf of mother earth. This vocation constitutes the next stage of evolution in our species.
