Joanna Macy

Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, Ph.D., is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. She is also a leading voice in movements for peace, justice, and a safe environment. Interweaving her scholarship and four decades of activism, she has created both a ground-breaking theoretical framework for a new paradigm of personal and social change, and a powerful workshop methodology for its application. Her wide-ranging work addresses psychological and spiritual issues of the nuclear age, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and contemporary science.

Her books included Despair and Empowerment in the Nuclear Age (New Society Publishers, 1983), Dharma and Development (Kumarian Press, 1985), Thinking Like a Mountain (co-edited with John Seed, Pat Fleming, and Arne Naess; New Society Publishers, 1988), Mutual Causality in Buddhism and General Systems Theory (SUNY Press, 1991), Rilke's Book of Hours (with Anita Barrows, Riverhead, 1996), Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World (with Molly Young Brown, New Society Publishers, 1998); Widening Circles: A Memoir, (New Society Publishers, 2000); and World as Lover, World as Self: Courage for Global Justice and Ecological Renewal (Parallax Press, 2007).
