Joanna Macy - A Wild Love for the World (On Being)

On Being's Krista Trippett interviewed eco-philospher Joanna Macy on this week's show. Among Macy's many books are World as Lover, World as Self: Courage for Global Justice and Ecological Renewal (2007) and Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We're in without Going Crazy (with Chris Johnstone, 2012).

In this podcast they use Macy's translations of Rilke's poetry (Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We're in without Going Crazy) as a jumping off point to her take on spiritual life and its relevance for the political and ecological challenges we currently face.
