Ecology and Social Change:
Applied Insights from the Natural World with Marty Janowitz
We live in an interconnected world where societies and natural systems both share many attributes and challenges. How do we play constructive roles as activists, citizens and spiritually engaged practitioner?
This experiential weekend will include guided meditation and contemplations both on our seats and wandering amidst the natural beauties of Denma Ling (meditation retreat center)and a series of talks with ample time for discussion, dialogue and investigating our collective wisdom.
The practice, discussions and ideas from this gathering are intended to stimulate and challenge us to engage powerfully and creatively in the emergence of a truly sustainable and basically good world.
