Julia Butterfly Hill

Saturday 2nd July 2011, 8pm

When I entered the majestic cathedral of the redwood forest for the first time my spirit knew it had found what it was searching for. I dropped to my knees and began to cry because I was so overwhelmed by the wisdom, energy and spirituality housed in this holiest of temples.

Julia Butterfly Hill

JuliaButterflyHillJulia Butterfly Hill, internationally renowned environmental activist and motivational speaker, will be in the UK as part of her European tour and will grace the Universal Hall with her enthusiasm and vitality for one night only.

Best known for spending two years on a tiny platform 180ft up in the branches of a giant redwood tree, Julia’s spontaneous action brought worldwide attention to the plight of these magnificent trees. Since she came down from the tree Julia has been dedicated to encouraging and empowering people to find their own passion and to put it in service of the world they want to see.

Julia’s talk, titled Spiritual Activation: Living Lives of Purpose, Passion and Power – Turning Inspiration into Action, explores how we can uncover and unlock our gifts and transform our blocks and challenges into our greatest contributions.

Spirituality is not just a part of my life; it is my life. My religion is love and integrity.

Julia never writes speeches, preferring to always speak from her heart. Her talks are always inspiring and deeply moving, and heightened by her clear perspective on our relationship to each other and to the natural world, she shakes us from our despair, apathy and resignation.

“Each and every one of us is more powerful than we could ever imagine. We are so often just a thought away from having a magical life beyond belief. We are each ancestors of the future, contributing to the vitality and wellbeing of all those with whom we share this beautiful, sacred life. What do we want our legacy to be?”

The proceeds from Julia’s talk will support the completion of Moontree, a new ecologically built home where our dedicated team of gardeners who nourish, nurture and tend The Park gardens can gather, to dry and work with herbs, make jams and preserves, or meet over a warming cup of tea and share company on wet winter days. The Moontree Project was inspired by Julia Butterfly Hill’s work, and her organisation Engage Network has already generously donated to this project.
