Drew Dellinger is the founder of Poets for Global Justice. His collection of poems, love letter to the milky way has sold thousands of copies to eager readers all over the world. He has shared his work at gatherings and conferences; in classrooms and prisons; in women’s’ groups, mens’ groups, and spiritual communities.
In 1997 Dellinger received Common Boundary magazine’s national Green Dove Award.  Dellinger co-wrote the documentary film, “The Awakening Universe,” which premiered at the United Nations in 2005.  Dellinger has studied cosmology and ecological thought with Thomas Berry since 1990 and is finishing his Ph.D. at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Dellinger lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Betty-Ann Kissilove has taught English as a Second Language at the City College of San Francisco since 1980.  She has been captivated and influenced by the Story of the Universe for over twenty years.  This interest, along with her history as a teacher, led her to write her epic poem, Great Ball of Fire!, a whimsical rendition of Earth’s 13.7 billion year story.

David Ergo was raised in Northern California, where at an early age he felt a deep disconnection between the western world and the damage being done to the natural world. No longer able to ignore the escalating ecological and social crises he first sensed as a child, he left his corporate training and flight instruction careers to pursue a path of learning and teaching about the need to face up to the ecological, social, and spiritual crises of the age. He is the author of the forthcoming book, The Holy Universe: A New Story of Creation, and Humanity’s Journey Through the Great Transition. He now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
