The New Creation Story by Andrew Beath

Dear Friends of EarthWays and the Ecological Epoch,

This coming Sunday, August 14th, we will continue our monthly, nearly-full-moon community gathering.  This is a few days before full, so the moon will be lighting up our ocean perch at sunset. Please join us. In many creation stories the moon symbolizes the feminine: the reflective, the deeply feeling and connecting, intuitive qualities of human awareness. These are the values that are currently cycling back into our collective consciousness, coalescing the Ecological Epoch—by necessity because of the challenges we face. Our gathering will address these circumstances. 

Beauty, Love and Courage,

Andrew

The New Creation Story by Andrew Beath
“Andrew Beath’s The New Creation Story is in the great tradition of Thomas Berry’s Universe Story.  It is a terrific book that describes a new, more accurate, and more hopeful story of humankind on its evolutionary journey. It is practical philosophy that gives a context for reflection and action.”      
          – David Orr, Oberlin Distinguished Professor and environmental sustainability author

Dear Friends,

Summer is in full sway as we continue our series of gatherings at my family house, also the home of EarthWays Foundation—the Malibu Pueblo. For those who have been to a “book reading” for The New Creation Story, you will find this gathering to be different. The intention is to build community around the relational principles found in the New Creation trilogy, which is subtitled: Spirit, Eros and Climate Chaos.

There will be a presentation to describe the context in which we find ourselves immersed, in addition to a twenty minute reading from The New Creation Story, and interactive questions pertaining to the human condition: who are we, where did we come from, what are our current planet-threatening challenges, and how might we heal the wounds that this emergency is causing.

This healing is personal, including one’s physical body, emotional wellbeing, one’s psyche and one’s spiritual connection; it is also relational and cultural, thus the term Eros in the subtitle—universal attraction affecting each individual, as well as the tiniest particle and the grandest galaxy. Our objective in being together is to help heal one another, our culture and our planet Earth.

There is no charge or required donation. The 14th is an almost-full moon, as has been our short tradition—magnificent to see and appreciate from our Malibu perch. Please bring some “finger food” to share with others, but there will not be a full meal so we will officially end before dinner; our time together will include opportunities to visit with each other and enjoy the ocean air, the sunset and the moon rise. We have lots of room, so please bring a friend or two, and feel free to forward this invitation to others.

Beauty, Love and Courage,
Andrew Beath for EarthWays

The New Creation Story Book 3: The Ecological Epoch
“A bold and brilliant analysis of the human story set against the predicament of climate change. Beath strikes at the heart (exposes the pain) of our cultural paralysis, explores the root causes and skillfully describes the way to a responsible and enlightened future. I can genuinely say how very good it is, and how particularly poignant it was to read it after the Climate March in NYC—in the context of the ever-present question of what will become of us, what should we do?”
— Linda Solomon Wood, Editor-in-Chief,
The National ObserverBuy Book 2 from Amazon.

“Beath has written a thoughtful, passionate history of The Planet, The Human Species, and, basically, The Future, where we are now, and where may be headed. It’s both an easy-going and a stunning read, one of these profound books that seemingly come out of nowhere. One of the best reads in a long time, and couldn’t be more timely.” 
—Steve Chapple, UCSD
