Caring for our Common Home: An exploration into Pope Francis’ eco-spiritual call to action

In this session, we consider chapter 3 of LAUDATO SI”.
The Care for Our Common Home that is being requested is
the creation of a new way of life, a new culture, an earth-based culture.

A soul-based notion of Creation and creativity is fundamental to development of the earth-based culture and eco-spiritual way of life expressed in CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME. This session offers an invitation to care for our own creativity, the portion of the Earth-within for which each of us is responsible. Care for our creativity, that “Common Home” can only be done in relationship and in service to the future of that relationship. In this session, you are invited to experience what Chris Bache called, the mind-field or collective consciousness. It is also called subtle activism where the sacred Earth we seek to steward is also within us.

Through songs, story-telling, lecture, group discussion, journaling, art-making and opportunities to participate in Earth-based prayer, students will continue to learn the basics of the integral ecology – based on the experience that everything is connected.
