This walk uses the tool of distance to convey vast time scales and will discuss key moments in the development of the planet. A Deep Time Walk is storytelling through walking and is a learning journey through our body, mind, and soul. It is a beautiful way to tell the story of life.
Part history lesson, part mindfulness session, this event is all about stepping out of our lives and seeing the biggest picture.
During this immersive, interdisciplinary experience participants will grasp the real meaning of 4,600,000,000 years, the age of our home, and put its history into perspective. Learn about the Gaia hypothesis of a self-regulating planet. Explore the destructive impact the human species is having on the living world.
Tamara Taylor is a social scientist who believes that a strong emotional connection to the natural world is good for personal wellbeing and promotes climate awareness and action. When Tamara learned about the concept of Deep Time Walks, she quickly saw their value in encouraging deep ecological awareness and an understanding of our planet as a precious environment from which all life has emerged. Tamara hopes the walks will renew individuals’ emotional connection with Earth and motivate them to take a more active role in confronting the climate crisis. The Deep Time Walk was developed by Stephan Harding and Sergio Maraschin at the Schumacher College (see www.deeptimewalk.org for more information about this project.)
