Come along on a free walking tour exploring San Francisco social movements in the context of Gaia theory.
In Gaia theory, all beings, including humanity, are aspects of an inextricable web of relationships birthed by a creative spirit investing the universe, but especially Earth. In this light, social movements are manifestations of the impulse to connect in equality of siblinghood. As children of mother earth, self-described distinct groups of people strive to assert their co-equal progeny status relative to other groups of people.
This walking tour takes up specific stories--The Mormons, the Black Panthers, native Americans, the Filipinos under American control in the 20th century, the adherents of People's Temple, and more--in illustrating the common search for equality of access to Gaia.
The walk is free, and what's more, $10 will be donated by the Henry George Historical Society to both KPOO and Indy Bay for every attendee of the walk!
