An invitation: come, step away from busy lives, from the distractions of screens, social media and the news. Taking this opportunity, we slow down, reconnect and deepen into our senses. Trees, a wood-land, the Spring, and a community of fellow travellers.
The practice of Spiritual Ecology takes us from the ‘old story’ of separation – into the ‘new story’ – (which is also as old as the hills) a place of inter-being and re-interconnection with the ‘more than human world’.
‘What can I do? What do I have to offer? Will my doing anything make any real difference?’ These three questions are the refrain we constantly hear. Walk amongst the trees, sit out by the fire, lie under the stars, share meals and stories, silence and meditation. Listening we wake up, and begin to see how things really are.
Come, let us explore together the deep inner resources and inspirations for change whispering all around.
