Earth Advocacy from the Heart (Tues. - Thurs.)    Tue Oct 17 to Thu Oct 19, 2017, Hockley Valley, ON

You are warmly invited to replenish yourself and reflect on your roots, your contribution and your calling as an earth-advocate (or however you describe your role.)

Why: You’re good at working to sustain the environment, but could be better at sustaining yourself and others working in the environmental field. This retreat will take leaders, staff and volunteers of environmental organizations to the roots of this important work. The activities and time for reflection will help you reconnect with your story, find inner wisdom, build resilience, renew focus and respond more courageously to ecological challenges. People who have attended similar retreats have left with greater clarity, courage and other inner resources to support the work and their colleagues.

October 17-19, 2017
Tues. 12 PM to Thur. 1 PM

You are a volunteer or employee of an environmental organization who wants to recharge your passion for this important work.

The Ecology Retreat Centre in Mono, Ont. operates year round surrounded by forest which will blaze with colour in October. The meeting space has gleaming wooden floors and large windows. Most dietary needs can be met, some at extra charge. Convenient location 90 minutes from city hall or 45 minutes from Toronto Pearson International Airport.

$560 CDN by Aug 17
$620 CDN after Aug 17

“Knowing that you love the earth changes you, activates you to defend and protect and celebrate. But when you feel that the earth loves you in return, that feeling transforms the relationship from a one-way street into a sacred bond.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer from Braiding Sweetgrass
