Dialogue/Discussion: Dialogue and Discussion: We’re Doomed! Now What? - San Francisco, CA

A U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq, Roy Scranton writes about sailing through a melting Arctic, preparing for severe storms amplified by climate change, and seeking meaning in life at a very precarious time in human history. His first book was Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization and his new work is We’re Doomed. Now What?  

Matthew Fox writes that advocates need to deepen their soul through spiritual practice in order to effectively addresss climate change, humanity's ultimate existential challenge. He believes that despair must be discussed and acknowledged for that can shut down human ingenuity needed to solve the climate crisis. He is optimistic that personal and collective awakening, anchored in love, will give us the fuel to build a cleaner and more just society. 

Join us for a conversation exploring the human condition during unsettling times. Climate.org hosts the event in San Francisco's Commonwealth Club.

Since the election, many of us have been in a state of heightened anxiety. So much is unknown and fear is a common response to uncertainty. We humans love to “know” and be able to predict what is going to happen next; in fact, our brains are wired to “fill in the blanks" even if it means filling them in with our most dreaded fears and catastrophic expectations. But there is another possible response—one that draws on the spiritual wisdom and practices of our respective faith traditions.  This gathering will provide an opportunity to explore spiritual wisdom teachings to help us deepen in faith and find the necessary courage and resilience to thrive during these uncertain and unpredictable times.

Speakers:  Rev. Matthew Fox is a spiritual theologian who has written over 33 books on spirituality and culture, and has been consciously reinventing education to make it more possible to teach wisdom and not just knowledge.  Among his recent works are Meister Eckhart: A Mystic-Warrior For our Times; A Way to God: Thomas Merton's Creation Spirituality Journey; Stations of the Cosmic Christ.

Estelle Frankel is a practicing psychotherapist, spiritual advisor and seasoned teacher of Jewish mysticism who blends the healing wisdom and spiritual practices of Kabbalah with depth psychology. She is the author of Sacred Therapy and just released The Wisdom of Not Knowing: Discovering a Life of Wonder by Embracing Uncertainty

Shaykh Yassir Chadly served as imam (spiritual leader) of the Masjid Al Iman mosque in Oakland from 1991-2016 . He has lectured extensively on Islam, Sufism and Religious tolerance and is an adjunct professor at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. 

Issa Nessim Baba will attend and lead Dzikr.

The Open-Faith Salon is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Sheikh Ibrahim Baba Farajaje whose work to build bridges between different faith communities remains an inspiration to all who seek to create peace and understanding through interfaith dialogue.
