Ecology, Science and Spirituality – Friends or Enemies?

3 June 2017 – London

‘Ecology, Science and Spirituality – Friends or Enemies? Building on the legacy of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Alister Hardy’

A joint conference with the Alister Hardy Trust at the Essex Unitarian Church, 112 Palace Gardens Terrace, Kensington, London.

The programme comprised:

“Deep Ecology and Theistic Evolution” – Professor Keith Ward referred to the work of Alister Hardy and Arne Naess, and explored the prospects for discovering a spiritual side to evolution, the suspicion between Deep Ecology and traditional Christianity, and the move towards a less divisive view.

“A Greater Love for the Earth and All Its People: Ecology and Spirituality in Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry” –  Professor Ursula King spoke about the themes of ecology and spirituality in Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry. What “Great Work” is required for the further social, cultural and spiritual evolution of humanity and a sustainable future for all life on Earth? And how far does this require a greater evolution of the transformative powers of love?

39 people attended the conference, which included lively comments and questions from the audience.
