Exploring the antidotal opportunities for gratitude and eco-spirituality
In Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer offers, “Scarcity and plenty are as much qualities of the mind and spirit as they are of the economy. Gratitude plants the seed for abundance. … Gratitude is a powerful antidote… A deep awareness of the gifts of the earth and of each other is medicine.”
This workshop explores the opportunities (and challenges) for gratitude and eco-spirituality as personal, pedagogical and environmentally revolutionary practices. Drawing on Macy and Brown’s Coming from Gratitude, we will situate our experiences within the wealth of earth-based gratitude and eco-spiritual research and explore possible next steps.
