Coming Home: Finding purpose and meaning in nature and community - Mac Macartney Fri 14 Sep - Sun 16 Sep

  • Sustainability

Deep down we know our strength lies in our togetherness, in our interconnectedness and interdependence. We are woven as cloth and find coherence and peacefulness when coming home to each other and those of all other tribes - the plants, the animals, the rocks, the insects, the fish, the seen and the unseen. This course braids beauty, wildness, activism and the yearning pulse all humans have for a meaningful life, into a compelling story of belonging. It takes us to the edge of a cliff where we can see our children playing, the extraordinary in the ordinary and the exuberant, fecund beauty of nature. It will offer us some beguilingly simple questions and an invitation. An invitation which if accepted will take us into unknown territory, to the edge of our courage, and perhaps, one step closer to home.
