Conversations with Authors is our free online event series! Join us throughout the week for new chats between different authors.

 

Jean Shinoda Bolen’s book Like a Tree, which grew out of her experience mourning the loss of a Monterey pine that was cut down in her neighborhood, provides an insightful look into the fusion of ecological issues and global gender politics.

That moment of loss, combined with Bolen's practice of walking among tall trees, led to her deep connection with trees and an understanding of their many complexities. From their anatomy and physiology, to trees as archetypal and sacred symbols, Bolen expertly explores the dynamics of ecological activism spiritual activism and sacred feminism. And, she invites us to join the movement to save trees. While there is still much work to be done to address environmental problems, there are many stories of individuals and organizations rising up to make a change and help save our planet. The words and stories that Bolen weaves throughout this book are both inspirational and down-to-earth, calling us to realize what is happening to not only our trees, but our people. By writing about both the work of organizations like Greenpeace and the UN Commission on the Status of Women, Bolen highlights her passions and shares her unique vision for the world.
