WS 505 Sustainability and Spirituality
Course Description: In this critical-thinking, dialogue-based class, we will look at the relationship between religion, spirituality, ecology and sustainability. In what ways is our ecological crisis related to our cultural, social, moral and religious values? Can faith traditions and indigenous wisdom provide knowledge and guidance? How can we become empowered eco-citizens to be able to hope and act for change? In this course of both theory ( substantial readings) and praxis, we will learn the fundamental importance of self-care and community, as well as tools for transformation. How can we restore balance to our lives and to our home, the earth? We will welcome spiritual teachers from diverse wisdom traditions into our class to facilitate these discussions and guide us in practices and rituals.
