Open Windows - Connecting Nature, Spirit and People
Can the global pandemic awaken in us a fresh, new earth consciousness?
Can it help bring together nature, spirit & people?
An explosive and devastating pandemic which has taken the world by storm, is also helping us slow down, to go within… to reflect on the turn the world is increasingly taking… on the increasing illness and toxicity that prevails through the entire length and breadth of our country and planet. Our interference with nature comes at an enormous price and with far-reaching consequences. Perhaps there is no better time than the present to take stock of our situation to bring forth the wisdom of some of our best minds and apply it to the human and nature relationship, to connect diverse streams, and take us forward towards a fresh, new earth consciousness.
Join in a journey of contemplation and reflection…of inspiration and action!
While it reflects on the prevailing malaise, it tries to tease one’s imagination, to see things whole… acknowledging the wisdom of beauty and the value of practical example.
