The arrival of Autumn is upon us.
How do you bridge your inner awareness with your outer actions? At this time the earth is in the middle cycle of its rotation around the sun. This moment of Equinox can be seen as a very balancing time. Typically a season of migration, this is the perfect time to journey inward and find nature as your path from inner to outer self. Pause and listen to the calls of nature and respond with an answer to help to bring biodiversity back to our local environment. Join us in reflecting on how our micro-climate gives and what we can do to live peacefully in a healthy community with inner species and biodiversity. Can you give back to nature to help support this calling?
We will be joined by Kendall Dunnigan, Director of the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center’s Permaculture Program. Kendall will share with us the value of our local biodiversity and how we can help preserve its natural state. Kendall’s work focuses on facilitating collaborative ecological design processes with priority given to supporting economically and environmentally marginalized communities in the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean with a focus on indigenous communities, women’s leadership, and youth programs. She is the co-author of the book Growing Communities: How to Build Communities Through Community Gardening, and is currently writing a book about Resilient Community Design.
