- MEDITATIONS AND DISCUSSIONS ON THE HUMAN PLACE IN NATURE -
Sacred ecology explores the natural world as a doorway to the "sacred." In this workshop we will explore existential questions such as: What is the concept of self? How do we see ourselves amongst the wider family of earth's inhabitants: animals, plants, minerals, soils and fungi, all of which are an intimate part of their own living ecosystems and perhaps, sentient waters? Might the concept of "self" be the root of our more serious environmental struggles?
Sacred Ecology reclaims the awareness of our integral connection with the earth, our inner "self", as well as our surrounding community. This workshop will be divided into two key portions: a guided meditation into the evolution and healing of the earth and and an intellectual discussion on the more specific concepts of nature and wilderness, indigenous perspectives, ecology, the self, and our sacred connection with the interconnected web of life.
