$ 0.99

Global healing requires a spiritual transformation of every aspect of life. Rabbi Michael Lerner of Tikkun Magazine, author/educator Matthew Fox and Joanna Macy, eco-philosopher and scholar of Buddhism speak of the profound interconnectedness of all life and the experience of joy, courage and community we need to engage in the healing of the world. 


Michael Lerner, Editor of the groundbreaking political/social/spiritual magazine TIKKUN, rabbi of Beyt Tikkun synagogue in San Francisco, and author of, among other books, The Politics of Meaning and most recently Spirit Matters: Global Healing and the Wisdom of the Soul, is one of contemporary America's most important socio-political/spiritual thinkers. 

Matthew Fox, an ordained priest since 1967, is a visionary theologian and founder and president of the University of Creation Spirituality in Oakland, CA. Fox's many books and lectures synthesize ecological and social justice, mysticism and blessing. His books include Sins of the Spirit, Blessings of the Flesh and The Reinvention of Work: A New Vision of Livelihood for Our Time

Joanna Macy, Ph.D., a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory and deep ecology and a leading voice in movements for peace, justice, and a safe environment, is the author of, among other books, Despair and Personal Power in the Nuclear Age; Thinking Like a Mountain; Mutual Causality in Buddhism and General Systems Theory; World as Lover, World as Self; Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World; and Widening Circles.

The Bioneers series consists of three sets of 13 programs each:

Bioneers Series II Improving Environment By Changing The World
Bioneers Series III 

Inspired by the philosophies of the Deep Ecology movement, the Bioneers are heroic examples of people living as if nature mattered. Join us as we look deeply into the magic and mystery of the convergence between leading-edge science and ancient wisdom for a Declaration of Interdependence for the new millennium. Though these programs were produced in the 1990s the contents of this series are timelessly relevant.
