More about Joanna Macy: Joanna Macy, PhD, is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology and the author of 8 books. A respected voice in the movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with five decades of activism. Her work helps people transform despair and apathy, in the face of overwhelming social and ecological crises, into constructive, collaborative action. It brings a new way of seeing the world, as our larger living body, freeing us from the assumptions and attitudes that now threaten the continuity of life on Earth.
