Active Hope and Deep Ecology
Sunday 4th of June 10.00-11.30
ECO HUB -Healing Fields
Deep Ecology workshop is curated to deepen our connection with ourselves, eachother and nature. We learn to cultivate our sensitivity to nature in a safe and nurturing space allowing for evolved activism, collective growth and heart-based change. Through practices from the "Work that Reconnects" by Joanna Macy, we use this holistic approach to facing world problems that brings together thinking, feeling, spirituality and action. It involves moving beyond the individualism of Western culture towards also seeing ourselves as part of the earth. This leads to a deeper connection with life, where Ecology is not just seen as something 'out there', but something we are part of and have a role to play in together.
