Grieving My Way Into Loving the Planet

Make yourself fierce; break in. And then your great transforming will happen to me And my great grief cry will happen to you.

Grieving My Way Into Loving the Planet

"In this excerpt from the new anthology 'A Wild Love for the World: Joanna Macy and the Work of Our Times,' journalist Dahr Jamail describes how Macy and her work helped him survive profound war trauma and climate grief. Macy, a scholar and teacher of Buddhism, systems thinking, and deep ecology, is the author of 13 books and a respected voice in movements for peace, justice, and ecology.
