Deep Ecology is a philosophy of nature which explores the psychological or spiritual disease that allows humans to attack the biological fabric out of which our own lives too are woven. This stems from human-centeredness and the ensuing illusion of separation from nature. This workshop explores some of the experiential processes that help us break through this illusion of separation and allow us to deepen our felt connection with the living Earth and nourish our ecological identity.

John Seed is founder and president of the Rainforest Information Centre. Since 1979 he has been involved in the direct actions which have resulted in the protection of the Australian rainforests. He has written and lectured extensively on deep ecology and has been conducting Councils of All Beings and other re-Earthing workshops around the world for 35 years. With Joanna Macy, Pat Fleming and Professor Arne Naess, he wrote “Thinking Like a Mountain – Towards a Council of All Beings” (New Society Publishers) which has now been translated into 10 languages. In 1995 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) by the Australian Government for services to conservation and the environment. He is a Fellow of the Findhorn Foundation and occasional Scholar-in-Residence at the Esalen Institute.
