Meditation for Opening to Earth Spirituality

Meditation for Opening to Earth Spirituality: A Half-Day of Deep Practice and Teachings

with Adam Lobel, PhD

In our half-day retreat we will explore how meditation opens to include the ecosystems in which we are embedded. Often thought of as purely about mind or psyche, meditation is also an embodied practice that plays in resonance with the calls of Earth. Such practice might become a mere distraction or escape from ecological loss and global warming. In our retreat, we will discover an earthy practice that calls us deep into being part of our planet, instead of leaving it behind. With love of the more-than-human world, our spiritual practice can open mind, heart, and body, as well as our action. Join us for the sensory pleasure of being part of our living Earth.
