Discussion Course - Reconnecting with Earth

$40

with David Lamon

Calendar Next session starts Jan 7, 2019 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Location: Fields Pond

Monday evenings starting January 7th (six sessions), 6:30 – 7:30 pm

Our world is changing at such an astoundingly fast pace. We get caught up in our daily lives and the problems we face—we end up losing touch with that deep connection we have to our planet. Reconnecting with Earth helps participants explore how our cultural beliefs and personal values affect the way we view and treat Earth. Together, we’ll discuss how our well-being is inextricably linked to the well-being of our planet. Participants discover a deeper respect for the planet and a renewed commitment to act—a shift that could be the key to real and lasting change.

Members: $35, includes course book
