An Evening Workshop with John Seed
Monday 19th October 2015
5.30 â€“ 7.30pm, at The Village Well,
54Â Strathalbyn Road, Aldgate
Deep Ecology is a philosophy of nature that sees â€œanthropocentrismâ€ or human-centeredness as the root cause of our illusion of separation from Nature and thus ourÂ ecological woes.
Philosophy professor Arne Naess coined the term, claiming that â€œEcological ideas are not enough â€“ we need ecological identity, ecological selfâ€.
In this workshop, John Seed will describe some of the experiential processes that help us break through this illusion of separation and allow us to deepen our felt connection with the living Earth and nourish our ecological identity.
He will thenÂ look at the relationship between spirituality and ecology andÂ the ecological shoots in allÂ major religions, particularly Buddhism.
