From Composting to Co-Creation


We live in a world of beauty and joy, but also in turbulent times with suffering among humans and in all of nature. Green spirituality reminds us that creation and transformation are part of the journey and that we can unfold into every moment: how can we co-create with nature?

Reconnect with your body and unwind in nature, walk with friends, breathe fresh air, listen to birdsong, wander in shady oak woods and wild swim in a glistening lake whenever you feel like it, to say nothing of sharing delicious vegan and vegetarian food, songs and stories round the fire and a hot tub beside the rushing stream.

Lammas – online

Monday 29th June at 19:00

Lammas is the time of the first harvest. Our Ancestors would have celebrated the beginning of the harvest season, and so we too, though not so closely in touch with the countryside, will meet to declare our gratitude for the sustenance of the Earth. Please bring a seasonal reading, song, poem, story, or recipe… and if you are growing herbs, fruit, vegetables etc. tell us about your produce. Have a candle to light to open sacred space and wear something colourful if you wish.

See the facebook post or the July newsletter for full details.

Earth Wisdom for our Global Crisis by Carlos Glover

Ancient peoples the world over have, for many centuries, striven to understand the workings of Nature, the movements of stars and planets and the cycles of birth and death, growth and decay, wind and weather.
