Deep Ecology Workshop
Join us for a one day Deep Ecology workshop, as part of our Climate Community Program, sponsored by the Inner West Council (for residents of the Inner West only).
Everybody is welcome. No previous experience necessary.
What is Deep Ecology?
Deep Ecology is a philosophy of nature that sees that underlying the environmental crisis there is a psychological disease stemming from the illusion of separation between humans and the rest of the natural world.
On the day we will experience practices enabling us to reconnect to ourselves, the web of life, and to each other. Opening our hearts and minds to the love and the grief we feel for our world is deeply regenerative, allowing us to access a deep well of experience, perspective and creativity to empower our actions on behalf of the Earth.
The processes we will be exploring are co-authored by John Seed of the Rainforest Information Centre and Joanna Macy anti-nuclear campaigner.

We acknowledge that this land area traditionally belonged to the Gadigal + Wangal peoples of the Eora nation, and their nonhuman kin, who have an intrinsic connection to the land and have cared for country for over 60,000 years before colonisation. These are lands of continuous Indigenous reclamation, and resurgence.
