Contemplative Ecology

“contemplative ecology”: bringing the Christian mystical and contemplative tradition to bear on our modern ecological crisis.

To solve our ecological crisis we need to come to see ourselves as intimately connected to the soil from which we’re formed. We have a long tradition of contemplative practices to guide us in that. This is what Christianity most has to offer the world now. Not moral guidance or activism or yet another social program, but a mystical connection to the Source of life. Cultivating that divine-human love affair offers us a hope that the world cannot give.

In this retreat, Fred Bahnson will tell stories and lead us in contemplative practices that will help us to establish, reestablish, or help us more deeply commit to this way of Contemplative Ecology, that we may experience our own deep connection to the soil, and provide hope in the midst of deep need.

Fred Bahnson is the author of Soil & Sacrament & co-author of Making Peace with the Land. His essays have appeared in numerous publications including Christian Century and Best American Spiritual Writing. He has won several awards, including the Pilgrimage Essay Award. Fred teaches at Wake Forest University Divinity School where he directs the Food, Health & Ecological Well-being Program.
