THE GROUND BENEATH OUR HEARTS
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2:45-4:15
BIONEERS (30TH ANNIVERSARY) CONFERENCE
CO-FACILITATORS: TREBBE JOHNSON and POLLY HOWELLS
As we confront the alarming manifestations of climate disruption and local environmental challenges, we become acutely conscious of both our love for the places and species in our lives and of our sorrow for what’s happening to them. In this workshop, we explore how surviving—and actually thriving—in hard times means holding the balance between these two deep and valid emotions. We’ll offer a simple practice for staying connected with the places we care about during hard times. Participants will also take a short reflective solo walk outside on the grounds of the Marin Center to look for signs of nature’s balance around the lake, the wetland, even in the weeds in the sidewalk cracks.
Bali from Within
March 2-14, 2020
Guides: Trebbe Johnson, with Balinese Guides: Rucina Ballinger, Wayan Suriada, and Nyoman “Mangkok” Sutarya
Each day, the Balinese people can be seen engaging in what is obviously a vibrant, creative, spiritually intact culture in full view of—yet rarely including—outsiders. For ten years I’ve been working with Balinese friends to offer this trip for only four participants. Together we penetrate the scrim of colorful, often enigmatic impressions… to discover Bali from Within. In 2019 we’ll be in time to join the festivities and the solemnity of Nyepi, Balinese New Year.
