Feb 15: Spiritual Ecology

Third Thursday Spiritual Forum. 
February 15, 2018; 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Spiritual Ecology has been defined as “A developing field that joins ecology and environmentalism with the awareness of the sacred within creation. Central to Spiritual Ecology is an understanding of the interdependence and living unity of the ecosystem.” In this Forum we will tap into what the messages are from our natural environment about our own lives. We will explore how we are a part of nature and not separate from it, and how what is being called for by Mother Nature directly relates to what is being called for in our own lives on our spiritual journey. This Forum will be both informative and experiential as we learn some information about the current state of our natural environment and then explore what that means for each of us individually and to all of us collectively. We will expand our awareness of our part in this evolving, interdependent ecosystem, both in terms of external actions and internal movement of consciousness.
