    Heart Connection, Earth Connection - A Deep Ecology and Dharma Retreat

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    In this retreat we will hold space for our grief for the world in the face of current social and ecological crises, as well as our love, desire to care and passion for the Earth. We will explore our deeper ecological identities through nature based practices, and draw on the power of meditation and The Work that Reconnects to transform confusion and despair into connection, inspiration and collaborative action for healing our hearts and the Earth. This will help us step back into our lives with more power and clarity. The retreat draws upon the philosophies and practices of Deep Ecology, engaged Buddhism and Wilderness Connection work. 

    This retreat will be hosted and facilitated by Emma Pittaway and Olivia Bernardini 

    EMMA PITTAWAY trained with Joanna Macy in 2005 and has been running deep ecology workshops since 2006. She teaches Buddhist meditation and has drawn much strength from it for her engagement in climate activism, refugee advocacy and community building. She loves nothing more than to wander in wild places.

    OLIVIA BERNARDINI is a Deep Ecology facilitator, environmental educator, Yoga teacher, counsellor and nature lover. She has worked in her local community ( Bellingen)  in the fields of sustainability, education, community development and multiculturalism for the past 20 years. In her free time, you will probably find Olivia immersed in some body of water. Water is Life!
