Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am reaching out to you, a call from my deepest self, to find further ways to stand, to increase my capacity to witness, love, and take action for a world that I want to live in—and supporting the BC SPCA’s amazing work is one of the ways that I can use my privilege to make a difference for our animal friends.
On March 30th I will be offering an online presentation, Living Epistemologies: The Body and Earth Speak, as a fundraiser for the BC SPCA. Go to my site, www.lisamortimore.com for more information and how to register. Registration fee is minimum 25.00 donation to the BC SPCA. Join me and stand with the animals.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated"
Disembodied living has led humanity to the brink of ecological catastrophe impairing our awareness of interdependency, relational connectivity, and the fundamental valuing of all life. Many do not value their bodies or the earth beyond what they can do for them. In our complex, relational world, an over-reliance on the brain’s left hemisphere (LH) leaves us ill-equipped to decolonize our mind and bodies, relate harmoniously, and ultimately re-imagine a just and sustainable future. Inquiry into thirteen women’s experiences of eco-activism illuminates how embodiment and interconnectivity enable intimate experiences within the self, access to the sentient self, and, through relational connection, human body to nature body, avail the body and earth as living sites of knowledge.
Here's a bit of info about the BC SPCA:
BC SPCA helps neglected, abused, and abandoned animals in B.C.
Last year the BC SPCA assisted nearly 50,000 animals in need.
Your donation will ensure that the SPCA can continue to shelter, feed, and care for animals who deserve a second chance and a life free from cruelty.
