Deep Ecology and Earth Rituals

Apr 27 - May 02 Begins in 1 week
with Kat Steele

Deep Ecology is a holistic approach to facing world problems that brings together thinking, feeling, spirituality, and action. It involves moving beyond the individualism of Western culture toward also seeing ourselves as part of the earth. This leads to a deeper connection with life, in which ecology is not just seen as something “out there,” but something that is part of us, and for which we have a role to play.
