About the Event

Deep Ecology

31 March - 3 April 2021

Venue: to be confimed

Facilitator: Sunisa Jamwiset (Om)

Deep Ecology, a term first coined by Arne Naess, is an ecological and environmental philosophy promoting interconnection and diversity, and endorsing the inherent worth of all beings regardless of their utility to human beings. It involves moving beyond the individualism of Western cultures towards seeing human beings as part of a global ecosystem. The ‘Work that Reconnects’ is a series of experiential practices pioneered by Joanna Macy drawn from systems theory, deep ecology, Buddhism, Indigenous wisdom and other sources, which aims to:

· Provide people with opportunities to confront feelings of being overwhelmed and powerless relating to the catastrophes the planet is facing

· Reframe our pain for the world as evidence of our interconnectedness in the web of life

· Revitalise ourselves to play a part in the creation of a regenerative planet

Facilitators

Om and Tom Dieters are pioneers of ecovillage living in Thailand, and are co-founders of Gaia Ashram, Gaia School Asia, and Next-GEN (Global Ecovillage Network youth movement). They host a range of sustainability trainings at their land near the Laos border, including permaculture, deep ecology, forest gardening, and they have been a long-term host of EDE programs in the region. Their facilitation is deeply rooted in their own personal experiences and practical application of deep ecology teachings.

Learning Goal: to provide people with opportunities to confront feelings of overwhelm and powerlessness related to the catastrophes the planet is facing, to reframe our pain for the world as evidence of our interconnectedness in the web of life and to revitalise ourselves to play a part in the creation of a regenerative planet

Learning Outcomes

  1. understand the interconnection and diversity of all living and nonliving things
