Love Thy Nature: Key to Saving the Planet and Ourselves!
March 24, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Narrated by Liam Neeson. Love Thy Nature is a cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our vital relationship with the natural world. And it shows that a renewed connection with nature is key not only to our well being, but also to solving our climate and environmental crises. Q&A to follow the film. Free but please reserve a ticket on Eventbrite. Update on Facebook and Meetup.
Neeson is the voice of Homo Sapiens — our collective humankind — who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we are separate from nature. This mind-set has caused us to disrupt billions of years of evolution, causing a mass extinction of species and threatening the survival of the human race. Love Thy Nature shows that a new era of connectedness with the natural world is key to ensuring our species future. This era might just be dawning: A new science called biomimicry taps into nature’s four billion years of
R&D for some of the most brilliant cutting edge inventions, pointing to a new highly advanced technological age — The Biological Revolution. In medicine, doctors are unveiling new findings on the role of nature in sustaining and healing the human body. And experts have discovered that just spending time in nature promotes healing, emotional stability, connectedness, and even neurological health in children. Through Sapiens’ journey, the film reveals how a relationship with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches us at the very core of what it means to be human.
