I feel as if I have just been “dipped in beauty”. I’ve just listened to Joanna Macy being interviewed by Krista Tippett. Joanna Macy weaves together her lifelong passion for the earth and her translations of Rilke. I am in love. It was 55 minutes well spent.
“Joanna Macy is a philosopher of ecology, a Buddhist scholar, and an exquisite translator of the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke. We take that poetry as a lens on her wisdom on spiritual life and its relevance for the political and ecological dramas of our time.”
