Shalom Kristanugraha

Originally hails from the volcanic islands of Indonesia and is a 1st year Master of Divinity student at Union Theological Seminary, focusing on how to best engage with climate/environmental trauma from an interreligious/spiritual perspective. Before finding their way to the University of Montana in pursuit of a Master’s degree in Environmental Philosophy, Shalom lived in Michigan, Kentucky, England, and Massachusetts. Nowadays, Shalom spends a lot of time pondering questions of what it means to live and die well in this era of global climate change – How can we provide spiritual care for those who have experienced environmental trauma (e.g. climate refugees, those who see their home landscapes changed irretrievably, etc.)? How do we relate with those whose death and dying we participate in and partially cause? How can we best live and organize together as individuals implicated in global systems of harm?

Rachel Skipor

A professional dance artist and a senior at Arizona State University majoring in Health Sciences with a minor in Anthropology. Through all of these disciplines, she focuses on food justice and the human right to accessible nourishment that is sustainable, culturally appropriate, and that honors body, mind, soul, and spirit. Her work as a dancer and studies of embodiment inform her desire to create spaces that are safe, nurturing, wholesome, and honoring of all individuals. She seeks to promote agency and sovereignty for all beings to actualize their aspirations for holistic nourishment, and she sees knowledge as a tool for agency, informed consent, and ethical decision making in pursuing health and wellness.
