Drew Dellinger: A Cosmology of Connection

Video with Drew Dellinger on Wednesday 3rd July 2019

The talk was filmed at the Advaya event Cosmology, Creativity & Climate Change on 3rd July 2019.

Drew explores how to move from our worldview of separation to a cosmology of connection, and how we can build movements that connect ecology, justice, and cosmology with the powers of Dream, Story, Art, and Action.

How do we keep our hearts open and our creativity engaged while facing the climate and mass extinction crises, and racial, gender, social, and economic injustice? How do we move from the modern worldview of separation to a cosmology of connection?


This was celebratory gathering including a workshop, talk and open mic. We looked at the intersections of ecology and social justice, cosmology and politics, activism, art, and imagination.

Sara Zaltash then lead an open mic, welcoming songs, personal reflection, story-telling, poetry and more from the audience - all offered up in devotion to the great life we all share.
