Free introductory class
We have become separated and isolated from this essential connection to our Place. We’re more mobile and rarely stay in one bioregion, we have access to more information and connection but feel lonely and disconnected. This course is about imagining a different future. This course is about the lived philosophy of our connection to the Earth.
I believe that learning as much as we can about our Place gives us a stake in how its experienced and treated. And when we know, we love, we care, and we connect.
This course consists of 3 (plus 1 free) virtual sessions of instruction and small group discussion about the Places we live and/or come from. Depending on class size, each session could last 1-1.5 hours.
