We offer you passage from a lifeless universe to a cosmos breathing with mystery and invitation, singing and crying in a jillion tongues. Gather with other Earth lovers, forest whisperers, and visionary coyotes to honor the Others with ceremony and conversation.

Monday, September 14, 2015 to Friday, September 18, 2015

In this course we will explore some of the many prophetic voices over the centuries that have spoken of the sacred earth and our sacred bodies. We will deepen our understanding of how they speak to us today on both a personal and collective level and how they can strengthen our own personal commitment to an ecological revolution - to become warriors as well as mystics and lovers of creation.
