    Women, Faith, & Courage for the Brokenhearted with Dr. Katharine Wilkinson

    Women, Faith, & Courage for the Brokenhearted with Dr. Katharine Wilkinson

    Dr. Katharine Wilkinson is a climate author, strategist, and teacher, working to heal the planet we call home. Katharine talks with us about faith, finding courage with a broken heart, the strength in vulnerability, and why we need female leadership to face climate change. Known for her work at the intersection of climate, religion, gender equality, and women’s leadership, the Boston Globe dubbed her first book, Between God & Green, “a vitally important, even subversive, story.” 
    Katharine’s TED Talk has more than 1.8 million views, and she is co-editor of a forthcoming anthology of women’s climate wisdom. In 2019, TIME featured Katharine as one of 15 “women who will save the world.”
    In this new “Bring the Light” season, we’re exploring how spirituality helps us face the climate crisis. This isn’t something we can beat with technology, policy and science alone. It takes heart and strength and courage - the kinds of things many people draw from their spiritual practices and faith traditions.

Love this season

When two years ago I began writing my thesis on climate change and spirituality, my advisors thought I was crazy and wanted me to tie it to something more concrete. This season comes at a time when I'm finishing said thesis, and it inspires me so much to write during the COVID19 panic! Thank you so much for this. Favorite podcast for sure!:)

A soothing balm to climate anxiety

Anna Jane and Mary Anne bring humanity and emotion back to climate activism. Their conversations are emotionally nuanced and balance between hope and action but never despair. They are very candid about their own struggles with their work in a refreshing way. The interviews have also introduced me to so many more people in this fight and give unique and fresh perspectives on how to help and cope. This has helped me find a climate community, even virtually, but that’s so necessary.
