Our ancestors saw the world as a living being. This idea has been similarly articulated for our modern age in James Lovelock’s “Gaia Theory.” David Spangler takes it another step, and helps us see Gaia as more than science, and as a renewed type of relationship between each of us and the natural world. “Thinking Like a Planet” is a way to address the growing environmental concerns and our sense of increasing imbalance between human society and nature.
In this talk, David Spangler explores what this means and how we may accomplish it by drawing on his personal experience of the spirit of Gaia and his many years of contact with beings and allies within the spiritual worlds—what he calls the “second ecology” of the earth.
David Spangler has been a spiritual teacher since 1964. From 1970 to 1973 he was co-director of the Findhorn Foundation Community. He is also a co-founder of the Lorian Association, a spiritual educational foundation, and a director of the Lorian Center for Incarnational Spirituality.
His work involves enabling individuals to develop an incarnational intelligence. He is the author of Blessing: The Art and the Practice; Subtle Worlds: An Explorer’s Field Notes, and Facing the Future. Information about his online courses, books, and workshops can be found at www.Lorian.org.
