Please invite your friends and spread the word.  We especially ask you to invite a young person to join our circle, as we do our ministry of mentoring the next generation of Earth Caretakers.
 

Our Contemplative Ecologists Circle has gone global!
It is our hope that others will adopt the Contemplative Ecologists Circle as a format for
expanding engagement with the wisdom writings of Thomas Berry.

HERE IS THE TEXT FOR OUR LEXIO


To Wantonly Destroy a Living Species
Thomas Berry 

The ecological age fosters the deep awareness of the sacred presence within each reality of the universe. There is an awe and reverence due to the stars in the heavens, the sun, and all the heavenly bodies; to the seas and the continents; to all living forms of trees and flowers; to the myriad expressions of life in the sea; to the animals of the forests and the birds of the air. To wantonly destroy a living species is to silence forever a divine voice. Our primary need for the various life forms of the planet is a psychic, rather than a physical need. The ecological age seeks to establish and maintain this subjective identity this authenticity at the heart of every being. If this is so of the prehuman phase of life, it is surely true of the human phase also. “The Ecological Age,” The Dream of the Earth, 46
