This workshop reconsiders us as part of nature with all dimensions of our being. It challenges our separation from nature as a false consiousness.

We share in the hope for humanity as a constructive partner with the rest of the earth's ecology. We explore the interconnections between person, community, senses of place and local ecosystems.

We will explore the meaning of ecology as we enter into the ecology of a particular place shaped as it is by its wildness, its humen built and its human perceived. The fusion of Social and Sacred Ecology joins the humen-centredness of the social, the transcendence of the sacred, with the interconnectedness of the web of life.

Participants are encouraged to participate in critical analysis and personal reflection. It will be personally and interpersonally challenging.
They are asked to come with an openness to look within and without; in place and with a community of fellow explorers.
