The BTS Center is offering an eight-week online course EcoSpiritual Leaders: Encounters with Wholeness on Thursdays, 10:00 - 11:30 p.m. PT from April 20, 2023 - June 15, 2023.
This course will consist of five live sessions, asynchronous learning activities, and an optional half-day online retreat. The course is divided into four sections, each consisting of two weeks.
Gratitude & Grief - exploring The Work That Reconnects by Joanna Macy
Forest Bathing - introduction to Forest Bathing/Nature Therapy
EcoSpiritual Practices - thresholds & thin places; creating contemplative and creative spiritual practices
Creation Care - synthesizing our learning and serving Creation
Every two weeks participants will engage in reading to pique their curiosity; watch a video to expand their understanding; experience embodied practice to connect us with nature; craft a prayer to nourish our spirits, complete an invitation; and participate in a conversation to collaborate in our interdependent growth. The anticipated time commitment outside of the live sessions is 2-3 hours per week.
