who each experienced their death episode of transformation on this date one year apart on Eukaryotes/June 1, 2009ce for Thomas Berry and 2010ce for Mary Schmitt. Many people in The Universe Story community around Earth knew these pioneers in bringing for this comprehensive epic through their teaching.
I had Thomas Berry as a teacher through his writings, videos, and others stories of his influence on them. In 2005ce I was part of a book club that read his classic Dream of the Earth that was published in 1988ce. There was no turning back for me right up to today as the inventor, creator, and author of The Universe Story Calendar Initiative that is dedicated to him.
Mary Schmitt was my advisor, classroom teacher, and friend during my graduate work at Holy Names University through the Sophia program of cosmology, spirituality, and culture during the years of 2007ce and 2008ce. Her deep knowledge and enthusiasm of the physical and psychical sciences was exhilarating to experience.
We are deeply indebted to these teachers and friends who have opened so many doors for those of us who learned about the new cosmology and comprehensive process of the integral journey until your last breath at your death episode of transformation. In deep gratitude for your Life episode of existence on this annual Thomas and Mary Day 2021ce Year of the Human Community of Beings!!
