Join Kerry Brady, Rev Lauren Van Ham, David Tucker, Brock Dolman, Melissa Nelson, Gopal Dayaneni, and Brian Thomas Swimme for this Eco-ministry Intensive rooted in the desire to create a resilient and thriving Earth community in support of a regenerative future.
The intensive is an invitation to open to the wonder of being an inherent part of a creative, living universe, and to re-discover our deepest belonging—to ourselves, to each other, to the Earth and to the greater mystery. For many of us who are religious and spiritual leaders, our original call to 'ministry' is being stretched by the anxiety and unrest that so many are experiencing during this time of disruption, injustice and uncertainty. During this intensive, we will come together in community and engage in mutually reflective encounters with the land and with each other, and root in that which lies beyond our differences—that which continually adapts, intelligent and resilient, through the cycles of time and change—and connect with the impulse to become an enhancing and regenerative presence to all of Life.
The overall intensive consists of an initial Zoom call, a 6-day retreat in Western Sonoma County, California, and a final ½-day post retreat Zoom call to support our ability to bring what we have discovered into action in our lives, communities and ministries.
