About the speakers:

Beloved Sara Zaltash is a British-Iranian artist, diviner and public mystic, a Fellow of the Schumacher Institute and Associate Fellow of St Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace. She holds a BA and MA in performance, post-graduate qualifications in Persian Language and Literature and Arabic Language, and further studies in law, quranic Arabic, astrology and sustainable ecologies. Sara's life was transformed in 2011 when she began offering her own unique adaptation of the Islamic call-to-prayer in unusual contexts all over the world, interpreting Allah as Oneness, dramatically shifting the emphasis of the prayer. Rebelliously ordained as Beloved Sara Zaltash by her communities of queer, radical, emancipatory and transformational spiritual practise, Beloved Sara is a non-denominational minister for a world in crisis. Beloved Sara interweaves her skills with the values of justice, honesty, courage, glory, power, humility, integrity and inquiry. She is a lifelong student of theological, esoteric and mystical practices from multiple traditions and teachers. She is inspired by her ancestors, the stars, the land, the rivers and the birds, and all of their pathways of faith and persistence.

Samson Hart is a writer, activist, farmer/grower, and earth-based Jewish diasporist. He holds a deep spiritual connection to earth throughout his work, which is grounded in his ancestral Jewish practice and the belief that nobody can be free until we all are. Samson holds an MA in Economics for Transition from Schumacher College and completed a farming fellowship at the Jewish diasporist farm, Adamah. He is co-founder of british jewish diasporist community project Miknaf Haaretz (edge/wing of the earth), a collaborative associate at Gentle/Radical, and an active member of Na'amod: British Jews Against Occupation and The Landworkers' Alliance. He is currently tending to a small garden on Dartmoor, and is at the early stages of imagining a spiritual, land-based community, grounded in radical social justice.

Dr Justine Huxley is the CEO of St Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace in London. St Ethelburga's mission is to build community resilience for times of ecological and social emergency. Their work is rooted in four core principles: Put values into action; Seek opportunity in Crisis; Build community across differences, and Protect what is sacred. Over the last five years, Justine has steered the strategy of the organisation towards preparing emerging leaders to face a future of complex, interconnecting crises. St Ethelburga's programmes include working with community polarisation, the refugee crisis, and deep adaptation for climate breakdown. Justine has a passion for advancing the next generation of leaders and peace-makers. Her first book, Generation Y, Spirituality and Social Change is a collection of interviews with young people living a radical new vision of faith and action. Her first job involved training a very grumpy camel on a remote Danish island. Find her book here.
