  • Spirituality and Nature – Modern life has separated humans from the rest of creation and led us to see ourselves as detached from its welfare. In addition to ecological problems, this attitude stunts our understanding of ourselves as creatures who are part of the natural world. Such separation from the rhythms and cycles of nature has both psychic and spiritual consequences. In this program, discussion focuses on ways to recover a sense of natural rhythms throughout the day, week, year and over a lifetime, and how involvement with nature can enhance that process. It will also explore the idea of simple living, which seeks fulfillment in the abundance of nature, relationships, and spiritual practices, rather than in material possessions and corrosive work situations. Participants will be invited to consider their own vocational options, lifestyle choices, and religious beliefs or spirituality as they relate to this issue.
