DEEP ECOLOGY FOR CHANGEMAKERS

"At its root, this is a course about connection. It is an exploration of our love for the world. I cannot promise answers, but through honest expression and exploration, we will begin to inhabit the right questions"

 

We find ourselves in a state of merging ecological and social crises. Our systems are failing us wherever we look; decimated forests, dying oceans, mass extinction, rising inequality, war, the list feels endless. We are burnt out and know in our hearts that so much is wrong, but are tied to systems of oppression and power that appear impossible to move beyond.

We must ask; What kind of planet do we wish to inhabit? What is our role in this transition to a better future for all? In strengthening our whole-self, becoming more resilient, developing a firm, innate personal and social ethics, and understanding the interconnectedness of it all, we better place ourselves to not only face the trials of these times honestly and openly but to act in a way that makes a beautiful future far more probable.

This unique1-1 training is rooted in a holistic array of movements and philosophies, including the Work that Reconnects and Wilderness Rites of Passage.
