The art of deep listening: Listening to each other, listening to Earth
July 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
A workshop exploring deep listening, weaving together the threads of solitude, togetherness and interconnectedness with Earth. With Amisha Ghadiali, founder of The Future is Beautiful.
In many ways the power of our listening determines the quality of our life. How much do we actually listen with open hearts and minds? Do we allow for the wisdom that lives inside us, in each other and in the earth to bloom into form? There is so much valuable information that we can tune into in the subtleties. Here we find so much of the wisdom that we need to embody so we can co-create a beautiful future.
Throughout our time together we will be weaving in and out of these threads of solitude, togetherness and interconnectedness with Earth.
About the series
The calling for us to reconcile our relationship with the Earth, our common home, could not be more urgent. andemics are just one symptom of the delicate balance of life that we have destroyed. As melting ice caps merge into sea, wild fires rage, the body of the earth continues to warm, it is obvious that political, economic and even environmental efforts are failing to protect, preserve or sustain life. A deeper response is required. So what kind of actions can truly create the changes we so desperately need?
As they say in the Lakota tradition, we cannot have peace on Earth, unless we also have peace with Earth. Spiritual ecology is both an ancient and newly emerging field which brings together ecology and environmentalism with the awareness of nature as alive, as animate, and as sacred. It proposes that at this time of ecological and social unravelling, spiritual values have the potential to provide the foundation from which to respond and rebuild.
In Listening to each other ~ Listening to Earth, we want to speak the story of interbeing in a way that honours both the human story and the other-than-human story, exploring how they are inextricably woven together. We aim to include climate justice and raise up the voices, wisdom and leadership of people of colour.
