The reciprocal relationship between nature and people has significant, research-supported positive implications on physical, social and emotional health and wellness, and on human communities and culture. But most of us never pause from our busy lives to closely examine our place in the natural world, or our relationship with it. Using the Incanto sculpture, Ancestors, as inspiration, we’ll delve deeper into our relationships with our ancestors and the role they play in cultivating our relationship with nature. We’ll explore the development of our “ecological self,” or a self that transcends individualism to recognize the healing that we can achieve for ourselves, our community, and our natural world when we live in harmony with all living beings. Instructor Sarah Croscutt will guide you in a visit to the Ancestors sculpture in Flagler Garden as part of this class. You’ll walk away feeling a renewed sense of connection to your ancestors, the natural world, and yourself.
