Our Ecological Crisis: Healing the trauma of the Earth
May 5 @ 8:00 am - May 7 @ 5:00 pm
The Earth is experiencing trauma- our ecological crisis. During this course we will discuss the ways in which the Earth is suffering, she is under assault from our ways of living and taking from her. The assaults of this way we live in disconnection from the Earth are leaving her scared, wounded and traumatized. We will explore our relationship to this suffering and trauma, remember the ways we are deeply interconnected and part of this Earth, to awaken, be touched, and inspired to bring our care and compassion to healing the trauma of the Earth. We will discuss how this may be at a local, community level, or active participation in greater environmental movements, and bring alive your unique light, love and connection to the Earth that is a gift to offer to our healing the ecological crisis. We will discuss ways in which practices, conversations and therapeutic healing of our care and connection to this Earth can support our clients who may be experiencing eco-grief or eco-anxiety over our ecological crisis.
