EARTH and SPIRIT COUNCIL presents: The Natural Way: Indigenous Voices, with John Seed
Date: Friday, May 6th
Time: 7-9 pm
Location: Native American Student & Community Center, SW Broadway at Jackson
John Seed, father of the rainforest protection movement worldwide, deep ecologist, author, and director of the Rainforest Information Centre in Australia, will lecture on "Wild Earth, Wild Mind, Wild Heart: Experiencing Deep Ecology" as part of the Natural Way series at PSU's Native American Student and Community Center. Seed writes, "Ecological ideas are not enough. To effectively serve the Earth and our people we need ecological identity, ecological self. This includes deep ecology practices which empower us as agents of healing change and helps us release the culturally-conditioned, competitive, isolated self. Thus we come home to our interbeing with all of life."
John Seed has written and lectured extensively on deep ecology and has been conducting Councils of All Beings and other re-Earthing workshops in Australia, North America Japan, India, Thailand and Eastern and Western Europe for 15 years. With Joanna Macy, Pat Fleming and Professor Arne Naess, John Seed wrote "Thinking Like a Mountain - Towards a Council of All Beings" which has now been translated into 10 languages. He is an accomplished bard and songwriter and since 1981 has produced 5 albums of environmental songs. Information about the Rainforest Information Centre is at http://rainforestinfo.org.au.
