San Francisco CA 94105
6 pm - check in, 6:30 pm - program, 7 pm - networking reception
Nearly half of all Americans are dealing with a new mental stressor: climate anxiety. Whether we get it from the news, coping with the immediate trauma of a natural disaster, or fearing for a warming planet, its undermining our health and well-being, according to the American Psychological Association.
Whats the solution to preventing stress, fear, and helplessness from taking a toll on your well-being? Cultivate awareness and resilience, say psychologists, which is easier said than done in an age of political volatility and rapid change. How does the human brain reconcile scary headlines with the desire to make sure our most basic needs  food, water, shelter, and safety  are met? Can we simultaneously enjoy a beautiful day in nature and worry about the future of human civilization?
Join us for a conversation about mindfulness in an age of unprecedented disruption with Mark Coleman, mindfulness meditation teacher and author of From Suffering to Peace, Make Peace with Your Mind, and Awake in the Wild, and Mica Estrada, assistant adjunct professor at the University of California San Francisco School of Nursing.

09/08/2019 Joanna Macy and Sunrise: Rising to the Climate Emergency

Sunday, Sept. 8, 10:30 AM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

When you think of the upcoming Global Climate Strike (Sept. 20-27), who is leading the demonstrations? Young people, right? Theyre increasingly taking the lead for climate related actions through organizations such as Sunrise. The dark hour in America cannot last, proclaims this new youth-centered activist group.
But marching beside the young people is spirit if not always in body will be revered elders in the ecology movement such as Joanna Macy, the author of 13 books and a veteran of six decades of political activism.
In fact, Macy and Sunrise people will literally be standing side by side at an upcoming event Rising to the Climate Emergency: What Can we Count On? at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists on September 8.
The climate emergency is really serious, says Macy, but we dont want people to feel paralyzed by the enormity of the challenge. We must help everyone find resources within themselves to realize they can make a difference.
Macy is most noted for The Work that Reconnects, workshops that inspired thousands to experience their connections with each other and gain motivation to play their part in creating a sustainable civilization.
Macys spiritual descendants in the Sunrise Movement are definitely eager to play their part. Theyre building a mass movement to stop the climate crisis and create millions of good-paying jobs in the process.
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists is one of the epicenters of progressive political action in Berkeley, through its own actions and the many activist groups that meet there. All who are concerned about the climate crisis are invited to join Joanna Macy and Sunrise at 10:30 AM September 8. Free potluck and lively conversation will follow.

Free to the public.
Wheelchair accessible.

Stand for Wildlife: Action in Point Reyes!
Public · Hosted by Save the Tule Elk
we are asking people to show up in numbers and stand for wildlife in Point Reyes National Seashore!
Point Reyes is home to 15% of all California biodiversity and is a gem that is under threat and needs our help. As a National Park, it should theoretically have the highest protections of wildlife, but the park has released a draft management plan where their preferred alternative includes expanding ranches in the seashore and killing Tule Elk to do so. Tule Elk were once thought to be extinct, and they are down to about 1% of their original population. Point Reyes is the only national park where you can see these animals and we want the park to protect them and NOT protect the ranches!

FILM SCREENING: Point of No Return
Vegetarian House
520 E Santa Clara St, San Jose, California 95112


Soaring at 28,000 feet without a drop of fuel, nothing is predictable. Not the weather, not the technology. And certainly not the fate of a man, alone for five days in a fragile, first-of-its-kind aircraft with nothing but ocean below.

Point of No Return takes you behind the headlines of the first solar-powered flight around the worldwhere two courageous pilots take turns battling nature, their own crew, and sometimes logic itself, to achieve the impossible. Not just to make history, but to inspire a revolution.


Dinner and movie for only $20.00!

KPFA Radio 94.1 FM presents: JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER
We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast
First Congregational Church of Berkeley, 2345 Channing Way, Berkeley
Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming disastrously because of human activity. But do those of us who accept this fact truly believe it? If so, surely we would be roused to act on what we know&
In We Are the Weather, Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, urgent new way. The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselveswith our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic. Only collective action will save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eatand dont eatfor breakfast.

Berkeley Arts & Letters presents Naomi Klein / On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal
First Congregational Church of Oakland
First Congregational Church of Oakland (View)
2501 Harrison St, Oakland, CA 94612
Berkeley Arts & Letters presents #1 international and New York Times bestselling author Naomi Klein (The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything) as she makes the case for a Green New Deal, explaining how bold climate action can be a blueprint for a just and thriving society. Joining Naomi in conversation is the editor-in-chief of Mother Jones, Clara Jeffery.
On Fire shows why Naomi Klein was described by the New Yorker as the most influential figure on the American left and why leading environmentalist Bill McKibben calls her the intellectual godmother of the Green New Deal -- which just happens to be the most important idea in the world right now.

Friday September 27, 2019 7:00 pm
Art House Cultural Center 2905 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley, CA 94705
Marking 22 years of front line action for the wild buffalo, the 2019 Buffalo Field Campaign Roadshow is coming to the Bay Area on September 27.
Buffalo Field Campaign co-founder and field organizer Mike Mease brings captivating stories and striking film footage direct from the land of the buffalo, in a multi-media presentation, with Indigenous soul music by flutist Mignon Geli.
The Buffalo Field Campaign works to end the slaughter and harassment of the last wild herds of buffalo in their native habitat in West Yellowstone, Montana.
BFC used video documentation, non-violent direct action, education and lobbying to change archaic laws targeting buffalo. Volunteers from around the world spend every day, sunrise to sunset, monitoring, documenting and running patrols on skis, snowshoes and other means to defend buffalo as they migrate in their traditional winter habitat.

Film Screening: The Answer
Vegetarian House
520 E Santa Clara St, San Jose, California 95112


The Answer tells the powerful true story of an American, James Donald Walters. The film portrays his youthful quest for truth which took him from his birthplace (1926) in Romania to Hollywood, California (1948) where he meets and is accepted as a disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, the great Indian Master, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. This is the story of an amazing spiritual journey. It is a metaphor for the spiritual journey of each and every one of us.
