Where Eco-Justice Meets Eco-Spirituality with Hayley Hathaway
December 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
“The world is not a problem to be solved; it is a living being to which we belong. The world is part of our own self and we are a part of its suffering wholeness. Until we go to the root of our image of separateness, there can be no healing. And the deepest part of our separateness from creation lies in our forgetfulness of its sacred nature, which is also our own sacred nature.” — Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
Let’s talk about ecospirituality and what it means in these pandemic times of climate crisis, economic inequality, threatened democracy, and structural racism. How do we live in right relationship with each other and the Living world? How could our work for justice be impacted by an increasing sense of our own sacred nature? We will explore spiritual guidance from the more-than-human world and how this leads to environmental justice.
