A Spiritual Journey Into Earth Community

Led by Rev. Myke Johnson

Wednesday evenings 6:30-8:30, beginning Sept 20

In the Memorial Room (#6)

In this time of ecological crisis, we need a deep spiritual transformation in our relationship to life on Earth. "Earth Communityā€¯ is a vision of human beings living in mutually beneficial partnership with all the beautiful beings on this planet. Drawing from Rev. Myke's book, Finding Our Way Home, we will explore together how to deepen our connection to the earth, to each other, and to the Mystery at the heart of life. Class times will include conversation, exploration, and mutual sharing. Between sessions, there will be suggested readings and practices related to each topic, usually involving going outside. Limit 12 participants.

For more information or to register, email Rev. Myke at revmyke@a2u2.org.
