Thomas Berry’s 100th birthday…an invitation from Mary Southard, csj
I would like to share a special invitation with you, the invitation to fall in love again! Carolyn Toben from Timberlake Farm Earth Sanctuary will be at The Well for our special program to honor Thomas Berry, his life and work.
Carolyn will be sharing with us from her personal friendship with Thomas and her sensitive conversations with him during the latter ten years of his life. She will share with us how Thomas came to see our troubled human relationship with Earth not only through science and a lifetime of scholarship into human cultures, but with the eyes of the heart.
For many of us Thomas invited us deeply into the Story of our Universe as a Sacred Story, a Love Story, to which we are awakening in our time. Together with Carolyn, we will have the opportunity of savoring Thomas’ long years of reflection, his hopes and his dreams…”The Dream of the Earth.”
Carolyn herself opened her beautiful land to become a sanctuary dedicated to inviting children into an experience of the Sacred Universe. We will be presenting her with our Sacred Universe Award in recognition of her creating of a context where educators and children may experience an intimate relationship with the living world around them.
If you are at all able, come and enjoy this important and delightful event at The Well, 1515 W.Ogden, La Grange Pk. IL on November 8 from 8:30 a.m. – Noon.
Call 708-482-5048 to register. Hope to see you there!
