Deep Ecology: Why Buddha Touched the Earth?
Mon. 19 October 2015, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm ACDT
Evening Deep Ecology Workshop with John Seed
Deep Ecology is a philosophy of nature that sees “anthropocentrism” or human-centeredness as the root cause of our illusion of separation from Nature and thus our ecological woes.
Philosophy professor Arne Naess coined the term, claiming that:
“Ecological ideas are not enough – we need ecological identity, ecological self”.
John Seed will describe some of the experiential processes that help us break through this illusion of separation and allow us to deepen our felt connection with the living Earth and nourish our ecological identity.
He will then look at the relationship between spirituality and ecology and the ecological shoots in all major religions, particularly Buddhism.
