Transcending the Anthropocene*. Insights from the Wisdom of the Corpus Hermeticum with Dr. Sally Jeanrenaud
The Hermetic maxim “As below, so above, as above so below, to achieve the miracle of the one thing” draws attention to the Divine Immanence as well as the Transcendence, the Most Manifest as well as the Unmanifest. As we face the grave challenges of the Anthropocene what can we learn from Hermetic wisdom that can help heal our relationship with the earth today?
(*The Anthropocene is considered a new geological era in which human activity is the dominant influence on climate and the environment, and which scientists warn is triggering the sixth mass extinction of life on earth.)
