OFF-SITE EVENT: FancyFree
Tuesday, January 23, 6:00 PM
Nonfiction Book Group with Carlo
Discussing Sacred Nature: Restoring Our Ancient Bond with the Natural World by Karen Armstrong
Led by bookseller and Greenlight marketing coordinator Carlo and hosted by our neighbors at FancyFree Brooklyn Pub at 71 Lafayette Ave, our nonfiction book group meets monthly to read and discuss non-fiction titles related to issues of politics, the natural world, and any other systems that connect us all. For January, the group discusses Karen Armstrong's Sacred Nature, a profound exploration of the spiritual power of nature and an urgent call to reclaim that power in everyday life from one of the most original thinkers on the role of religion in the modern world. In this short but deeply powerful book, the best-selling historian of religion re-sacralizes nature for modern times. Drawing on her vast knowledge of the world’s religious traditions, Armstrong vividly describes nature’s central place in spirituality across the centuries. In bringing this age-old wisdom to life, Armstrong shows modern readers how to rediscover nature’s potency and form a connection to something greater than ourselves.
