Deep Ecology & Healing Ecology in the Tarkine Wildnerness

Friday, 20 February 2015 - 2:00pm to Monday, 23 February 2015 - 4:00pm
Corinna, Tasmania

Deep Ecology – dissolving separation between nature and human and Healing Ecology – the 2 way experience of healing between nature and human, interweave to create a unique space for developing greater insight, transformation, healing and empowerment.

An experience not to be missed for the Tarkine is like nowhere else on earth and unforgettable! One of the world’s greatest remaining wild rainforests, Australia’s largest temperate rainforest and an ancient slice of Gondwanaland.

We enter forests of myrtle, leatherwood and pine tree by foot, canoe and car, (no need to be fit) for expansion, insight, understanding, healing and merging with nature, life, self, soul and others.

Explore beyond the surface and the vast visual beauty, as we open and deepen our connections with ourselves, all beings, ancestors and the spirit of the country and the energies that create an unique web of life in this ancient ecosystem,

Arne Naess, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at Oslo University, suggested that what is needed are community therapies “healing our relations to the widest community, that of all living beings”. Acknowledging our interconnectedness we invite spontaneous healing of the psyche.

‘Jung inferred (that instinct and soul)…can be restored through reconnection with the sacred aspects of the natural and imaginal worlds.

To reconnect with our roots in wild nature…we may navigate unknown territory...but what is broken into pieces can be re-membered and begun anew like the initiate who emerges as a powerful shaman. It is reconnect with the sacred earth, to restore our souls to their rightful wholeness, both individually and as a culture.

By re-membering our roots in the sacred, by re- establishing right relations with nature and the imaginal, we renew our trust in the power of soul to help us find our way home.’
