Oil Sands Fly Over: My Memory Forever with Jennifer Berezan, Joanna Macy and Anne Symens-Bucher

Jennifer Berezan, Joanna Macy and Anne Symens-Bucher bear witness to Alberta's Oil Sands. In response to the experience, Jennifer, singer songwriter native to Alberta, wrote "My Memory Forever", expressing her deep concern regarding oil sands expansion across Canada's Boreal Forest.

Many thousands of people around the world have participated in Dr Joanna Macy's workshops and trainings. Now 83 she continues her work helping people transform despair and apathy, in the face of overwhelming social and ecological crises, into constructive, collaborative action. It brings a new way of seeing the world, as our larger living body, freeing us from the assumptions and attitudes that now threaten the continuity of life on Earth.

We can do better.

Let's honour past, present and future generations.

It's time for cleaner options for energy production.

Keepers of the Deadly Fire - EON Video

EON. It was over twenty years ago when future EON co-founder Mary Beth Brangan joined a ‘Fire Group’ to explore the concept of long-term nuclear responsibility led by Joanna Macy. Since that time, Joanna has spread the seed values of Nuclear Guardianship around the world. It is a concept made urgently relevant by the ongoing Fukushima disaster.

Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, creator of the Nuclear Guardianship concept, speaks about the spiritual challenges and opportunities represented by nuclear power and nuclear weapons in this EON video interview. Watch More EON Videos

Through silence and song, sitting practice. Dharma talks, and interactive exercises, we will affirm our capacity to take part in the healing of our world. Each of our lives is played against a backdrop of war-making, hunger, mass extinctions and increasing climate chaos. The Buddha's teachings show how we can respond to the suffering of our time in ways that bring courage, gladness, and deep community. Our day together will draw on the Work That Reconnects, developed by Joanna over the last 35 years, and on Jennifer's soul-expanding music, that has empowered activists the world over. Joanna Macy is known worldwide as a Gaian teacher whose trainings strengthen movements for global justice. Her books include Dharma and Development, Coming Back To Life, Mutual Causality in Buddhist Teachings and Systems Theory, and her memoir Widening Circles, as well as translations of Rilke's poetry. Jennifer Berezan is a renowned singer/songwriter whose work is informed by Buddhist and indigenous teachings as well as her adventures at the forefront of social change. Her concerts and recordings include Praises for the World and her most recent release In These Arms, a Song for All Beings, based on practices of loving kindness and compassion.
