Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, PhD, is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. A respected voice in the movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with five decades of activism. 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. The many dimensions of this work are explored in her books, including Mutual Causality in Buddhism and General Systems Theory (1991); In Praise of Mortality (2004) with Anita Barrows; Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World (1998) with Molly Young Brown; and, most recently, Pass It On: Five Stories That Can Change the World (2010) with Norbert Gahbler.A provocative independent voice for our times, Arlene Goldbard is a writer, social activist, and consultant who works for justice, compassion, and honor in every sphere, from the interpersonal to the transnational.Goldbard's essays have appeared in such journals as Art in America , The Independent, Theatre , High Performance , and Tikkun . Her books include Crossroads: Reflections on the Politics of Culture (1990); Community, Culture and Globalization (2002); and her novel Clarity (2004).Goldbard has helped dozens of organizations make plans and solve problems. These include nonprofits such as the Independent Television Service, the National Campaign for Freedom of Expression, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art; foundations such as the Rockefeller Foundation and the Paul Robeson Fund for Independent Media; a score of state arts agencies; and many others.She has served as vice chair of the board of ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal, and tsofah/president of Congregation Eitz Or in Seattle. She is a member of the board of directors of the Shalom Center. She cofounded such activist groups as the San Francisco Artworkers' Coalition, the California Visual Artists Alliance, Bay Area Lawyers for the Arts, and Draft Help.Born in New York, Goldbard grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she now lives.
