Oil spills, climate change, natural disasters. No one can deny that the Earth is in crisis at this time in history. Modern civilization, though great, has brought with it tremendous destruction. But, in the midst of catastrophe, there is hope, possibility, and an opportunity to grow. By reconnecting with what indigenous peoples have known for thousands of years, we can realize our interdependence with Mother Earth and all of Her creatures and begin to live in harmony with the natural world, instead of in opposition. Based on millennia-old teachings of native cultures, we will learn to live “The Three Rs” – Respect, Relationship, and Reciprocity.
Life is a dynamic process and in this class, students will begin to experience their world in a new way, integrating physical senses, mindful awareness, and heartfelt connection in order to see Nature in a divine light. We will learn how to communicate with the “other-than-human” realms, and recognize our inherent interdependence with the earth and the cosmos. These lessons are paramount to repairing and rebuilding our relationship with Mother Earth for the wellbeing of all.
