What happens when we change our relationship from Earth as Mother to Earth as Lover? This is the story of how two ecosexuals, Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle, came to marry the Appalachian Mountains and join the fight to abolish mountain top removal (MTR). Documenting a trip back to Beth's hometown of Gauley Bridge, West Virginia, the film examines how small communities face destruction for short-term corporate gain and the brave activists who put their own bodies on the line to try to stop it. Featuring extreme tree hugging, rock kissing, and skinny-dipping, it shows how the fight against environmental injustice can be a little more sexy, fun, hopeful, and diverse.

Joining us to facilitate conversation on Sunday, August 16 is Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi MSW, matrix of Living Love Revolution; a sexologist, a Priestess of Aphrodite, a holistic spiritual healer, and an EcoMagicks practitioner.

Living Love Revolution is her life work and spiritual calling and a non-hierarchical, self-organizing, experience-based system of healing that focuses on expansion, liberation, and sovereignty.

Reverend Ciacchi can be heard regularly on and you can keep up with her at

Facilitating conversation on August 20 is Lindsay Hagamen, a member of Windward, an intentional community 30 years in the making, dedicated to developing the knowledge and skills needed to live well with one another and the Earth. As President of the Windward Foundation, the non-profit that stewards the 130 acres of forest-farm that provide life-support services for the community, Lindsay tends to the land and to the people that call the land home.

At Windward, Lindsay focuses her energy on dry-land permaculture and holistic forest management, growing healthy food and forest products for her tribe. Learn more about Windward at Visit Lindsay’s personal website at

In addition, the recently released book Ecosexuality: When Nature Inspires the Arts of Love will be offered for sale. It contains essays by Teri, Annie, Beth and Lindsay, and Lindsay is one of the co-editors.
