“Knowing that you love the Earth changes you, activates you to defend and protect and celebrate. But when you feel that the Earth loves you in return, that feeling transforms the relationship from a one-way street into a sacred bond.” ~ Robin Wall Kimmerer from Braiding Sweetgrass.
This four-part series will explore the role your inner life plays in how you love, defend, protect and celebrate the Earth. Lisa Gordon will weave practices from Parker Palmer and other visionaries to help you remember your inner wisdom about the Earth. You will explore how you connect with the Earth and how you connect with others when defending the Earth. How do you promote faith, hope, and love while living with doubt, despair, and pain? What is your story of falling in love with the Earth? By the end of the series, you will be more at home telling your own story and be less reactive when you listen to stories you disagree with. The program follows the Circle of Trust principles that Parker Palmer formalized at the Center for Courage & Renewal (TM). Attending the Nov 7th session is mandatory to lay the foundation of trust needed for subsequent sessions, Casual drop-ins are discouraged.
