Presented by John Grim, Ph.D.
As part of our “Earth Wisdom: Spirit, Soil, Sacred Search” day of events, we explore Spirit with the co-founder and director of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University. John Grim draws from his new biography of American “geologian” Thomas Berry to explain Teilhard’s deep influence on Berry as well as both thinkers’ similarities and differences.

He directs the program in Religion and Ecology at Yale and organized conferences of World Religion and Ecology for the Center for the study of world religions at Harvard.
