Environmental Activist and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy at Naropa University



"Hope isn't something you have, it's something you do."

Joanna Macy




In February 2013, Naropa University welcomed back environmental activist and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy, who presented the public lecture "Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We're in Without Going Crazy." She addressed what she deems the most significant aspect of this historical moment on Earth—that we as humans have begun to awake from a long sleep, to an entirely new relationship to our world, to ourselves, and to each other. Macy has coined this shift from an industrial growth paradigm to a life-sustaining one as "the Great Turning." She offered stories on this time of the Great Turning, as well as reflect on how to remain sane, centered, and connected during the inevitable unraveling of an unsustainable civilization.
