Thomas Berry, Prophet and Mystic; Wisdom and Inspiration for the Great Work,
with Gertie Jocksch
Thomas Berry can lead us through these challenging times of unparalleled Earth devastation. Our task, he says, is to begin the transition from our modern industrial-technological civilization to a more benign mode of human presence to Earth. This calls for a radical re-visioning of what it means to be human among the communities of our planet home and how to birth a new age of healing and harmony with all creatures and elements of earth. We will explore together Thomas’ worldview. Through Thomas’s work, we will encounter his mentor Teilhard de Chardin whose understanding of the Cosmos led to his profound understanding of the universe story.
