New York, NY
Music for Sunday Meeting
New York Society for Ethical Culture
2 West 64th Street, New York, NY 10023
I'm providing music before the Sunday meeting, which is titled, "The Law of the Land: Our Conflicted Tussle Over Nature." It's a panel discussion - description below:
"Every great advancement in environmental protection in the United States has not been without a struggle. Often the struggle is less about the need for preservation, but how best to move forward. The struggle is complicated by the emergence of competing narratives each tied to a set of closely held values and beliefs. To enter into the fray without understanding the roots of these beliefs is to proceed at ones peril. But what are these underlying values, and how can we enter into discussions with one another and seek common ground without sacrificing our highest ideals?"
