Depth Ecology Camp

With Nora Bateson, Melina Laboucan-Massimo, Rex Weyler and Kairn Mahon Carrington

August 14 - 18, 2024

With Special Guests Merlin Sheldrake, Erin Robinsong and David Abram.

Humans do not stand apart from the earth and its living systems. To address our
global challenges, we must start from our roots as creatures of this Earth.

What does it mean to take action and adopt a genuinely ecological frame for seeing our world, our selves, and our human challenges?
Deepen your connection with self, the earth, and its living systems. Re-source and reconnect with your wild roots while spending time with the forests, the ocean and the gardens. Most activities will take place outdoors in the beautiful, raw landscapes of Cortes Island.

Through informative presentations, dialogue, and experiential play, explore what it means to be human in this time and on this planet. Acknowledging the perilous evolutionary moment we are living, and its impact on all living systems including our individual human psycho-spiritual selves, we will remember and recover pre-colonial worldviews that place homo sapiens alongside the natural world.

Build a deeper reservoir of understanding and skills about wildness, ecological systems, and an appropriate interface with human communities. Through informative presentations, dialogue, metalogue, adventures in nature and hands-on workshops, we will open our eyes to the magic of life’s processes, and connect this to our social and community processes.

Special Guests

Guest Speakers include Erin Robinsong and David Abram.
