The Earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves.
Misuse of the earth and its resources has led to the present civilisational crisis. Mankind now faces problems like poverty, pollution, drought and famine. Reiterating our commitment to the Earth and nurturing the bonds that connect man with Nature is the first step in putting ourselves back together, says Siddhartha, (a novel dealing with the spiritual journey of self-discovery of a man named Siddhartha).
The premise of this being that the vocation of each human being is to be pro-human and pro-earth at the same time. Poverty, industrial pollution, climate change, acute water scarcity, population explosion, religious conflict, and the commercialisation of values - these are the major challenges of our time. There are some who believe that the Earth may give us the strength to deal with our many afflictions and so we offer these courses to encourage reconnection with nature. Growing our own food also offers enormous health benefits. Home-grown freshly picked fruit and vegetables contain much more prana (the Sanskrit term for the life force which gives energy to our bodies) than supermarket vegetables and come free of any air miles and plastic packaging to dispose of.
See our Events and Booking page for details of our sustainability courses.
We are offering a beekeeping course during April and May 2021.
