Thank you for your interest in participating in the Open Minds Book Club!

For the April 2024 session of Open Minds, we will be reading and discussing  Rooted: Life at the Crossroads of Science, Nature, and Spirit by Lyanda Lynn Haupt.

In Rooted, cutting-edge science supports a truth that poets, artists, mystics, and earth-based cultures across the world have proclaimed over millennia: life on this planet is radically interconnected. Our bodies, thoughts, minds, and spirits are affected by the whole of nature, and they affect this whole in return. In this time of crisis, how can we best live upon our imperiled, beloved earth?

The discussion for this book will be held on Wednesday, April 3, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Richard M. DeVos Center’s Meijer Regency Room located on the GVSU Pew Campus.

Thanks to the generous support of our Hauenstein Center members, we are able to make copies of this book available for free to the first 20 individuals to register.

Please order or request your copy of the book by March 20th to allow time for shipping and to enjoy the reading before the discussion.
