The Academy of Mindfulness & Contemplative Studies, the uOBRMI and the Faculty of Arts welcome you to a free live webinar with David Abram.
The Ecology of Wonder: Contemplative Practice in a More than Human World
David Abram, cultural ecologist and geo-philosopher, is the author of Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology and The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-than-Human World. Hailed as "revolutionary" by the Los Angeles Times, as “daring” and “truly original” by Science, Dr. Abram’s work has helped catalyze the emergence of several new disciplines, including the burgeoning field of ecopsychology. Named by both the Utne Reader and the British journal Resurgence as one of a hundred visionaries transforming contemporary culture, he has been the recipient of various awards and fellowships, including Rockefeller and Watson fellowships and the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction.
