To further reinforce our theme of “Reconnecting with Nature,” the Simply Living Book Club has selected the book that inspired the film, Journey of the Universe: The Epic Story of Cosmic, Earth, and Human Transformation. Authors Brian Swimme, the acclaimed evolutionary philosopher, and Yale University historian of religions Mary Evelyn Tucker, tell a big story in a small book – one that inspires hope for a way in which Earth and its human civilizations could flourish together.
You can borrow the book from the library or purchase a copy from Abe Books or a used bookstore very inexpensively (under $5). You can delve more deeply by watching the film in advance of our screening and you can even take a free course HERE.
An in-person discussion of the book will take place on Sunday, March 31, from 3:30 – 5 pm at Portia’s Cafe, 4428 Indianola Ave. 43214. You can stay for an optional vegan buffet from 5-6 pm.
But why wait? A discussion here on the Simply Living blog will be open to all even if you can’t attend the film screening on March 24 at the Northwood High Bldg (click on the Events tab for details) or the in-person discussion on March 31 at Portia’s. Feel free to share your comments here and share related books and films.
