A weekend of experiential deep ecology, “the work that reconnects”. A benefit for Ecuador’s rainforests – all workshop fees support the work of the Rainforest Information Centre.
Deep Ecology is a philosophy of nature which explores the psychological or spiritual disease that allows humans to attack the biological fabric out of which our own lives too are woven. This stems from human-centeredness and the ensuing illusion of separation from nature.
The term was coined by philosophy professor Arne Naess who claimed that “ecological ideas are not enough – we need ecological identity, ecological self”.
This workshop explores some of the experiential processes developed by Joanna Macy, John Seed and others, that help us break through this illusion of separation and allow us to deepen our felt connection with the living Earth and nourish our ecological identity.
