THE FULL ECOLOGY OF GUANAJUATO

Join us for an unforgettable week of learning in the beautiful heart of Mexico.

The captivating city of Guanajuato, founded in 1554, is a place of soft hills, soothing rivers and enduring human society. This early spring retreat offers a rare chance to dip into the Full Ecology of the world we share. In the company of each other and the land itself, we will listen, speak, write, wander, and meditate. We will have opportunity to visit with generous local activists who specialize, among other things, in water, bees and culture.  Taken together, these experiences will guide  us toward unique and vibrant new understandings of human nature. Of humans as nature within nature.

Restoring Land and Soul

There’s a place in the southwestern corner of Montana where the river weaves a fine Spiga chain through the wetland and willowed prairies at the ankles of a soaring stretch of Rocky Mountains. The mountains run east to west – an orientation adopted by precious few...

Wolf Stories

Yesterday, we went to a place in Yellowstone National Park where wolves live. We weren’t right there with them, but close enough to stand with other people with high powered spotting scopes to watch from afar. The Junction Butte pack has a good batch of new pups....

Earth Day on the Cusp of COVID

Earth Day on the Cusp of COVID

Thinking on it, I find it hard to see how one can love the earth but not fellow human beings. And also, it seems incongruous that one could love humanity and exact sins of degradation against nature. Whether wings and feathers or hands and fingers, we share the same...

Equinox – The Balance Point

Equinox – The Balance Point

In the Reiki tradition, there’s a graphic symbol for harmony – for balance. Sei hei ki. To me, it looks like a dancer, or maybe something winged, and I’ve heard that to draw it well requires open, relaxed and sweeping gestures. People who know and practice Reiki use...

Weariness & Renewal

Today the temperature around our home hovers near 0°. "Can super cold weather make me tired?" I ask. We talk about it. It can. Sometimes. That's why it's good to sleep in a cool room. It’s also why trees and fields and waterways need winter. To rest well. Whatever the...

These are not easy days. Here in the northern hemisphere, nearing winter solstice, we’re deep in the cold and dark. Add to that the count – ten months of COVID-19. Like the dark, the pandemic is here with us. So are other circumstances – embers of rumination and...

COVID in the House

COVID in the House

Well. We’ve got it. We who, since mid-March, have essentially cloistered – masked, sanitized, distanced. We even disinfect our keys and doorknobs. How in the world did this virus find us? It did. Our symptoms are quite light. We’ll make it fine. But, like you, we have...

Call & Response

Call & Response

In a functioning ecology, the dialogue between wound and medicine is ongoing; there is a call and response always happening.  Francis Weller Do chickens or the eggs come first? They do.   Am I living or dying? You are.  So, it goes and goes. Call and response. The...
