Join us the second Monday of each month from 5-6pm in the Readings Gallery for the Natural Concerns book group. We discuss contemporary and classic writings that explore the issues, insights and inspirations of our relationship with the natural world. With a focus that spans from our Pacific Northwest to earth-wide, you can expect beautiful and challenging non-fiction, fiction, poetry, and more.

Tom - thanks for asking.

This is a public group - no set members; generally we have a new mix each month, which keeps things interesting. No particular preparation is needed, and no review or other presentation is made; I and/or others simply facilitate discussion. Some people attend having read only part of the book, or based on a long-previous reading. We spend the hour in open conversation on the subject. In this case, I am hopeful a number of people familiar with Joanna Macy and/or her writings will attend and add to the dialogue.

I'm thinking about coming.  Can you tell me a little more about how the time is spent?
