The Voyage from Despair to Hope
Heather Lyn Mann was a weary environmental activist who decided that a change of scenery was in order. Over the next six years, Heather made the Atlantic Ocean her home as she sailed through a series of life-threatening storms, pirates, near-collisions, and societies nearing extinction.
Come aboard for this discussion with Heather Lyn Mann as she reveals the Great Atlantic’s lessons on fearlessness, impermanence, and bringing a beginner’s mind to our collective climate advocacy in 2017. Recorded on January 19, 2017.
