Join us for the next episode of Sacred Earth: Growing Beloved Community in conversation with Bishop Marc Andrus, Dr. M. Paloma Pavel, and Professor Brian Swimme, Cosmologist and Astrophysicist, as we explore RELATIONSHIP being the fundamental building block of an ever more diverse cosmos. Dr. Swimme is the author of The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos and The Universe is a Green Dragon. He is co-author of several books including The Universe Story with Fr. Thomas Berry and The Journey of the Universe, with Mary Evelyn Tucker. Swimme is also the creator of three educational video series: “Canticle to the Cosmos,” “Earth's Imagination,” and “The Powers of the Universe.” He was also cocreator of the Emmy Award-winning PBS documentary Journey of the Universe with The Human Energy Project. His newest book, Cosmogenesis: An Unveiling of the Expanding Universe, reveals the completely giving nature of the Universe, a cosmic love that allows the future to emerge, and our alignment with that nature as we give ourselves completely to whatever service we provide for our fellow beings. We learn that there is no such thing as “lifeless matter.” Matter, in its very structure and dynamism, generates life. As Brian’s mentor Fr. Thomas Berry stated: “The universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects.”

Brian collaborated with his mentor to discover differentiation as the first law of the cosmos, while sameness is a cosmic crime. We are gifted at birth with a quantum of energy and are asked only to use it to express uniquely who we really are. The third law is that the universe conspires to build communities. Come March 22 to join Brian Swimme and our guest musician and vocal activist, Melanie DeMore, who states: “Life is for the seeking and sharing of light, joy, and deep love for what moves you.” When she comes your way, her energy will charge the very air you breathe like a meteor shower, so get ready to rise up!
