DR. SHIVA @ LMU
“SEEDS of HOPE & FREEDOM” by Dr. Vandana Shiva
Well, every quantum physicist earns my deep respect. They study the equinox of ancient science with the perspective of modern science, and that is incredible to me. This is also what I find incredible about Dr. Shiva, she applies the wisdom of the Vedas and Gandhi to perhaps the most poignant dilemmas facing our global society today (biodiversity, women’s empowerment, resource sustainability, earth democracy). She’s debating the heads of the UN, the IMF, the FDA….and showing up to these debates with a 2 inch “red dot” on her third eye. I’m guessing by now you’re already getting the sense of this devi’s shakti, but Dr. Shiva embodies the sweet compassion of Tara as much as she does Durga’s fierce protectiveness. As she quotes Rumi, and extrapolates the future of international trends, you are awed, and called to action by the strength of her presentation.
I feel blessed to have heard her speak, and blessed to share the opportunity with you. Dr. Shiva will be in Los Angeles, speaking at Loyola Marymount University for Friends of Navdanya. Join me in opening our hearts and minds to one of my personal heroes, Dr. Shiva! ~ Siva
