Finding purpose in the Amazon rainforest – Zoë Tryon

May 19 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Zoë Tryon will tell her story of how she came to find a life of passion and purpose living and learning in the Amazon Rainforest from indigenous forest protectors and wisdom keepers.

From privileged yet emotionally turbulent beginnings to becoming an environmental and indigenous rights activist – both funny, heartbreaking at times, and ultimately hopeful tale.

Zoë Tryon has worked and lived with the Achuar, Shuar, Kichua, and  Waorani, peoples in the Ecuadorian Amazon and Andes since 2006. She has worked with sustainable development projects in indigenous lands, been an active campaigner for the inclusion of rights for nature in the new Ecuadorian Constitution, and has worked closely on the case against Chevron in the northern Ecuadorian Amazon (the largest environmental lawsuit in history).
She is an ambassador for charities Amazon Watch (www.amazonwatch.org) and Fundacion Pachamama (www.pachamama.org.ec )and for The  Sacred Headwaters Initiative (https://cuencasagradas.org). She leads shamanic tours in the Andes and jungles of Ecuador, helping people to reconnect with the magic of the wilderness, nature, and indigenous wisdom and ‘toxi tours’ for celebrities, filmmakers, journalists, and photographers of the areas destroyed by oil development.
She is committed to being a connector, a bridge between the indigenous world and the modern world for the rest of her days.

 

This talk is happening at The Bridge, but we will Livestream it also.
