Michael Pollan, writer, will present "The Climate of Consciousness."

Michael Pollan has been educating us with illuminating prose on “the botany of desire” for a very long time. He will discuss his latest book This Is Your Mind On Plants and his landmark bestseller How To Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence. Pollan’s call for change, restoration, and resiliency may be the very thing we need to bolster our consciousness in the midst of climate collapse. This session will be live streamed.

Respondent: Charles Stang, Director of the Center for the Study of World Religion

Brian Kirbis of Theasophia will open the conversation with a tea pouring. Each conversation will be conducted online by Terry Tempest Williams, writer-in-residence at Harvard Divinity School.

This series is a Constellation Project in partnership with the Center of the Study of World Religions, Religion and Public Life, and the Planetary Health Alliance.
