There will also be time for meditation and prayer, to ponder on the miraculous in the everyday.

Diarmuid O’Murchu, “Integrating the Living Cosmology – Covid 19 and the Anthropocene”.
Tuesday 2nd November to Friday 5th November 2021

In dialogue with Diarmuid O’ Murchu the conversation this week will focus on the recent pandemic and its long-term ecological and spiritual implications. Covid 19 is an urgent call to reclaim our status as earthlings, creatures with a seven-million-year evolutionary story, now fixated on a new wave of human domination, (named by some as the Anthropocene), proving to be perilously dangerous for our future on this earth. What will it take for us to heed this global wake-up call?

Three and a half day course includes  course content, accommodation, one meal and tea/coffee & snack.

Cost: €420
