"Sacred Chrysalis: Eco Dialogues is an initiative of the
Susie King Taylor Women's Institute & Ecology Center
As executive director of the Susie King Taylor Women's Institute and Ecology Center, I want to take this time to say 'Thank You' for your personal endurance and perseverance during this unprecedented time in the United States of America and the world.
We understand that the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic, global demands for racial justice, and the economic downturns have changed the modes of our social interactions and the way that we do our work.
We send you, our dear friends, lots of love and light as you navigate through these uncertain times. Like people, plants and animals who have lived before us we are resilient! Their ecological legacy to us is that adaptation is the key to survival.
Like our namesake, Susie King Taylor, the Institute is resilient. Under these unique circumstances, we will adapt and focus on what can be done in our sphere of work using logic and sound science provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
In this time of social distancing, we will continue to focus on history and culture, and we will also be intentional about environmental issues and ecological healing.
Lately, I've been receiving phone calls and emails from people around the country who are tired and emotionally bankrupt about what's happening in our local communities, around the state, and throughout our country.
On behalf of the Institute, I have created a small-group special initiative called SACRED CHRYSALIS: Eco Dialogues with Hermina. The purpose of this project is to share, release, inspire, refuel, or simply gather in silence. This is a weekly gathering. If you are sincerely interested in participating, please email for more information.
Be well. We need one another as we press on in healing our planet.
