Jean Bolen Hosts Live Webinar

March 26, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm PDT

Jean Bolen, author of Like a Tree, is hosting a live webinar on Friday, March 26th at 2pm PST!

In this talk, Jean Shinoda Bolen shares insights and ideas from her book ‘Like a Tree’. Which grew out of her experience mourning the loss of a Monterey pine that was cut down in her neighborhood. She provides an insightful look into the fusion of ecological issues and global gender politics. This event is sponsored by the GoldenBraid Bookstore.

This talk will be a powerful and poetic call to ecological activism. The deep loss of a tree in front of Jean Shinoda Bolen’s house that she couldn’t save, combined with her practice of walking among tall trees, led to her deep connection with trees and an understanding of their many complexities. From their anatomy and physiology to trees as archetypal and sacred symbols, Bolen expertly explores the dynamics of ecological activism, spiritual activism and sacred feminism. And, she invites us to join the movement to save trees, and nature in general.

As a lecturer, Jean’s storytelling can be very engaging, speaking as she does as if in conversation. A Q&A will follow the presentation.
