Satish Kumar, Editor-in-Chief, Resurgence & Ecologist
"Soil, Soul and Society"
A summer evening with Satish Kumar, Editor-in-chief of Resurgence & Ecologist, with film excerpts from Earth Pilgrim.
Environmentalist and humanitarian Satish Kumar will be discussing his ecophilosophy based on the trinity of soil, soul and society.
This new trinity offers a holistic, inclusive, and planet-centred alternative to our current worldview, and inspires us to understand that we are, in truth, "members of one Earth community".
The evening will include excerpts from 'Earth Pilgrims,' a film that asks the question:
"From a world swamped in problems, in a global civilization on its last march towards the edge of the cliff, how can we reconnect with a deeper, more meaningful way of life?
How can we make a difference?"
View the trailer and learn more about the film at the Earth Pilgrims website.

About Satish Kumar
Satish Kumar is an internationally renowned speaker on ecological and spiritual issues. When he was only nine years old, Satish renounced the world and joined the wandering brotherhood of Jain monks. He left the monastic order and became a campaigner for land reform, working to turn Gandhi's vision of a peaceful world into reality, before undertaking an 8,000 mile peace pilgrimage, walking from India to America without any money, through deserts, mountains, storms and snow.
Since 1973 he has been editor-in-chief at Resurgence & Ecologist magazine, and his books include No Destination, You Are Therefore I Am, Spiritual Compass, and Earth Pilgrim.
Satish teaches, lectures and runs workshops on reverential ecology, holistic education and voluntary simplicity. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorates in Education (2000), Literature (2001) and in 2009 an Honorary Doctorate of Law from the University of Exeter.
Satish has regularly contributed to Radio 4's Thought for the Day and has appeared as a guest on Desert Island Discs. He featured in BBC2's Natural World Series -- Earth Pilgrim: A Spiritual Journey into the Landscape of Dartmoor. Satish is a Vice President at the RSPCA.
