Great news: Starhawk is returning to Sooke during a break in her latest permaculture fortnight at OUR Ecovillage. Like last year's visit to town, she’ll offer a talk followed by a Q&A session. Her address this time is titled Vision, Hope and Strategy and it will explore how all three are critical if we hope to weather these turbulent times. “My own feeling is that the business-as-usual forces, the centralized power Oilasaurus, is like a dying dinosaur, wounded and thrashing about," she told us in a recent email. "The question is how do we limit the damage it does on the way out? And also hold to a vision of what comes after?” Starhawk brings social justice, care of the earth and spirituality to a vision of how our societies can function for the benefit of all.
She is the author of thirteen books on such topics as Goddess religion, earth-based spirituality, group dynamics and social permaculture. Her bibliography include The Spiral Dance, The Earth Path, The Pagan Book of Living and Dying, and the novels The Fifth Sacred Thing and its follow-up City of Refuge. Her documentaries (with director Donna Read Cooper) include Permaculture: The Growing Edge and the National Film Board Of Canada‘s Goddess Trilogy. Through her organization Earth Activist Training (EAT), Starhawk directs courses in permaculture and regenerative design grounded in earth-based spirituality and with a focus on organizing and activism.
