GREEN EXODUS

Let the beauty we love be what we do
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground”
– Rumi

The Green Exodus is convening those who, to their surprise, find themselves falling deeply in love with the Earth; profoundly touched by the Earth’s beauty, fragility and mystery. 

How can we be good soil for this new view and love of Earth and for all that might arise? 

During the winter and spring of 2021 the Green Exodus hosted online gatherings on Fridays. We used various practices to realign our relationship with the earth: meditation, poetry, land acknowledgment, land embodiment, contemplative photography, deep time walk, community conversations and hospitality. We were nurtured by Indigenous, Christian and Buddhist wisdom traditions and by conservationists and earth keepers. 

Over the next three months we will be creating ways to participate in the Season of Creation, officially from Sept. 1 – Oct. 4, but for our purposes will be extended to just before Thanksgiving on Oct. 8. Explore here to learn more and stay tuned!
