Join us as we celebrate the release of Susan Bauer-Wu’s new book, A Future We Can Love: How We Can Reverse the Climate Crisis with the Power of Our Hearts and Minds. This in-person event will be free and open to the public. We recommend arriving early for the best seating.
About the Book: When the Dalai Lama and Greta Thunberg spoke for the first time in January 2021, millions of people around the world took notice. A Future We Can Love shares inspiration from these two great figures, generations apart, bringing them into dialogue with cutting-edge climate scientists, activists, and spiritual and indigenous leaders to start a world-changing conversation. Readers embark on a four-part journey toward active hope in the face of the climate crisis: from knowledge of climate feedback loops, through the capacity for change, to the will that is needed and the actions we can take.
About the Author: Susan Bauer-Wu is president of the Mind & Life Institute, cofounded by the Dalai Lama to bridge science and contemplative wisdom to better understand the mind and create positive change in the world. Prior to joining Mind & Life in 2015, she was the Kluge Professor in Contemplative End-of-Life Care and director of the Compassionate Care Initiative at the University of Virginia School of Nursing, as well as associate faculty in the Religious Studies Department. An avid gardener and hiker, she has a deep concern about the care of our planet and is committed to policies and personal actions to ensure a future we can love for our children and grandchildren. She lives in Charlottesville with her husband and two dogs.
A Future We Can Love will be released on June 13. To order the book, please see below for the New Dominion Bookshop book order form or call the shop at 434-295-2552.
"This rare and potent blending of voices highlights Greta Thunberg and the Dalai Lama as they share deep wisdom and true inspiration for our times. Their plea goes right to the heart: Out of love for life, please act on behalf of our precious planet. It’s not too late!"
