This facilitated conversation helps participants deeply connect to and love animal nature. To live fully alive means we need to learn to live without fear and to die courageously. If we can embrace the reality of our shared and interdependent animal nature with all life, we will be embraced in return by nature.
We begin the conversation with some teaching/background given by Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner. Afterwards, participants will submit questions on topics that concern them and that could help them and the group live an empathetic and loving life towards all species, including humans. The world needs each to do this inner work so we can do the outer work to preserve and cherish life and well being. We seek no less than co-liberation – undoing how we grew up in a culture of domination, power-over dynamics, and inequality. It is possible that we experience freedom with other beings.
