Sister Paula Gonzalez: Biologist, environmentalist, & futurist

Since 1970, Paula Gonzalez, a Sister of Charity of Cincinnati, has offered over 1800 talks, seminars and retreats on various aspects of "Futuring and developing a planetary perspective". These consciousness-raising programs have reached religious communities; educators and students; civic, church, and professional groups.

In the early '80s, Paula gained direct experience with passive solar design and super-insulation techniques while converting a chicken barn into a passive solar residence. Modeled on the cyclical processes in nature, it was built by volunteers, using largely reused materials. This experience has led to energy consulting in the USA, Mexico, and Canada. A second major building project in Cincinnati resulted in the 1995 opening of EarthConnection a center for learning and reflection about 'living lightly' on Earth. This building is a 21st century, solar-heated model of resource efficiency.

Paula has written a series on Ecospirituality for Today's Parish and developed audiotape minicourses on Earth-healing for St. Anthony Messenger Press and Credence Cassettes.
