Spiritual Ecology

Event time: Mon 8th Aug 2022 at 6:30pm - Fri 12th Aug 2022 at 2:00pm

At a Glance

  • Retreat-like atmosphere
  • Guided meditations, sacred singing and inner journeying
  • Life-affirming

What Participants Will Gain

  • Techniques to become an agent for spiritual-ecological healing
  • Ways to commune with nature spirits, devas and genius loci (spirits of place)
  • The benefits of David’s years of experience

If our motivation is solely based on fear for human survival then whatever we do will have the energetic imprint of our negative emotions. Some believe that if we fear something strongly enough it could manifest in our life.

But there is another approach known as spiritual ecology. In this course, you will learn how to access the positive forces of nature, usually hidden from our awareness. Peering through the veil that divides the material world from the realm of nature-spirits we will meet the beings who were known to our ancestors. These have the old names of Fairy, Sprite, Dryad, and Elf. They are ready to work with us to support planetary healing as they invite us to discover the wonders concealed within tree, bush, hill and stream. Renew the ancient friendships that formerly existed between nature-spirits and humankind and your efforts to restore and repair life on earth will flourish.

David uses life-affirming techniques and ways of joy and kindness, such as: sacred songs, meditative methods and soul-journeys.
