Introduction to Spiritual Ecology


Introduction to Spiritual Ecology

How can we face the mess and not go crazy and instead reconnect with nature?

This is a free workshop by Maaike Boumans from Bright Future Lab. The introduction evening last September was a great success, time for a 2nd edition!

– A Spiritual Ecology Workshop –

You may have never heard of Spiritual Ecology before, like me, Maaike Boumans, until last year. You might have a connection to either or both of the words. Or maybe you have a hunch you want to live in a different way. Perhaps actually you feel the great urgency for us to radically change the way we live: to not only make peace on Earth, but make peace with Earth. And maybe you don’t know where to start.

If any of this resonates with you, you’re so welcome to join.

This evening workshop is a light introduction into the body of work of Spiritual Ecology. How can we face the mess we are in and not go crazy? Building on the work of Joanna Macy, John D. Liu, Charles Eisenstein and others, this evening combines dialogue, exercises and reflection. It’s my intention for you to walk away feeling inspired and invigorated, with a larger community of likeminded people at your back.

There’s room for 20 people.

We’re organizing this evening on donation basis. There is no fixed fee to attend this evening, you are warmly invited to contribute what you want.

 – About the trainer –

I am Maaike Boumans (30), a poet, traveller and host. I hold an MSc in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability and have been working around these topics for the past six years with Bright Future Lab. After a powerful 5-day solo retreat in nature a few years ago, I’ve been longing to deepen my connection with nature. To learn to speak her language again, live my life from a place of reverence and simplicity. This has brought me to Spiritual Ecology. I would love to meet you on this journey!

With big thanks to De Ceuvel for offering their space.
