Inter-subjectivity, reciprocity, and empowerment in the age of the Anthropocene
Horten, Norway: June 7 – 9, 2019
A deep ecology retreat that nurtures our connection and inter-being with the natural world, with guest facilitator Dr. Andreas Weber, award winning biologist and philosopher.
This weekend retreat lasts from Friday evening until Sunday after lunch and guides participants toward rediscovering our inter-connectedness with nature. We will start and end with the question ‘Who are we?’ and will deepen our understanding and knowing throughout the weekend as we also participate in the spiral of The Work That Reconnects.
