Host Mathilde Rand goes in conversation with Dr. Michelle Merrill and Roland Saher about Despair and Hope: Coping with Climate Change.
Dr Michelle Merrill started Novasutras in 2017, as a way to respond to the need for spiritual community centered on the biggest challenge humanity currently faces: how to reawaken our deepest connection with our living world to reclaim our joy, honor our pain, grow trusted relationships, and take meaningful action in service of all life.
Roland Saher is a retired high school social studies teacher and an activist. He believes that we must look both at how bad the trouble is we are in and the fact that there is hope as long there are people. He also tries to enjoy the struggle as much as he can.
