“Grief And Joy: Healthy People, Healthy Planet”
***TONIGHT ON THE Lifeboat Hour, 9PM EASTERN TIME; your host will be Carolyn Baker, whose special guest is Francis Weller of Sebastopol, California. The topic of the show is “Grief And Joy: Healthy People, Healthy Planet”, and Francis and Carolyn will be discussing how allowing ourselves to experience our personal and planetary grief not only facilitates the healing of both, but also enhances our capacity to experience joy.
Francis Weller, MFT, is a psychotherapist, writer and soul activist. He is a master of synthesizing diverse streams of thought from psychology, anthropology, mythology, alchemy, indigenous cultures and poetic traditions. Author of *Entering the Healing Ground: Grief, Ritual and the Soul of the World*, he has introduced the healing work of ritual to thousands of people. The core of his work is creating pathways to reclaiming our indigenous soul, what psychologist Carl Jung called the “unforgotten wisdom” that resides in the heart of the psyche. To further this work, he founded and directs *Wisdom Bridge*, an organization that offers educational programs that seek to integrate the wisdom from traditional cultures with the insights and knowledge gathered from western cultures.
