About the Deep Ecology & Yoga Retreat 2021
It’s Courtney Brook here coming to you from my office and sanctuary the forest.
Happy to be in here, as always.
And I wanted to share a little bit with y’all about an upcoming offering that I’ll be sharing at Earthaven EcoVillage in the fall.
So it’s called Deep Ecology and Yoga Retreat, and the body of work of Deep Ecology was founded and initially shared by Joanna Macy and some of her colleagues.
And it was developed in response to her noticing in herself and her own energy in her own body that she is tiring of of trying to make things better on planet Earth, tiring of activism and wanting to be able to keep on going with her efforts and seeing a lot of folks around her doing various, you know, all the different kinds of activism that we do, whether it’s being a school teacher or being a parent or being on the front lines in the forest or, you know, all the other 10,000 things that that we do to try to make life beautiful and good.
And she was noticing that she was needing to find ways to reconnect to herself and reconnect to the source of life and to her calling.
And so she developed this body of work called the Work That Reconnects or Deep Ecology.
And I remember the first time that I participated in Work That Reconnect Deep Ecology offering.
I left there feeling so much more connected to my sense of purpose and to my life and to the Earth that I’m working for.
So in the fall, I’m excited to be offering Deep Ecology and Yoga Retreat with my dear friend and amazing yoga teacher Garrell Bevirt, who is going to be facilitating the yoga portion of the retreat.
So we’ll be nourishing our bodies and nourishing our connection to ourselves and to each other and to all of life, to our ecological identities and to the reason why we do the things that we do.
So whether or not you are considering yourself an activist or wanting to consider yourself an activist or just really needing to deeply connect with your sense of purpose and your path, I really hope to see you there.
And, Yeah, may we find the things in our lives that really re energize us and refuel us and look to each other into the source of life itself when we tire.
So thank you very much, Joanna Macy for this inspiring body of work and hope to see you there.
