Quakers and ecospirituality
16 August - 10 October 2021
In this course we will learn about the concept of ecospirituality and engage in ecospirituality practices from within and outside the Quaker tradition.
This course, Quakers and Ecospirituality: grounded practice to meet the ecological crisis, will explore and practice spiritual grounding for environmental practice.
Drawing together the contemplative and active aspects of Quaker tradition, participants will learn about and engage in ecospiritual practices that connect, sustain for the long term, and root deeply in active justice.
Participants will learn about the concept of ecospirituality and enact eco-practices that reflect Friends testimonies, caring for and partnering with that of God in all other entities with whom we share this planet.
While being grounded in Quakerism, the course will also invite participants to learn from others outside the Quaker tradition, expanding Quakerism in ways it may be limiting, and welcoming transformation in places where we have bought into white supremacy. Holding together interconnectedness, justice, and care, this course will encourage participation in a community of belonging.
The start date is when course materials and forums become available.
Live sessions are every Thursday at 16:00-17:00.
