“At times I feel as if I am spread out all over the landscape…and am myself living in every tree, in the splashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons.”
    ~ C.G. Jung

Lecture Description:

Earth is our Home, our Mother, our Rock of Ages, our Tree of Life, our Beloved – the source of all of our blessings. But in our restless quest for new worlds and treasure we exploit and abuse our Earth. We forget She is alive, forget She has a soul. How do we reckon our human nature with Nature? How do we suffer our grief, guilt and fear about what we have wrought without becoming paralyzed? Naomi Ruth Lowinsky will speak – in stories and poems – of her own struggle to respond to Earth Angel and the Rising Tides.

Event Location: The First Unitarian Church of Cleveland
(21600 Shaker Blvd., Shaker Heights, Ohio 44122)

Workshop Description:

We’ve turned our Beloved Earth into a fury. Weather is Her language. She bellows at us in hurricanes, tsunamis, warming oceans, melting glaciers, tornados and fires. How do we rebuild our erotic relationship with Earth, our reverence, our awe? In this daylong workshop, we will write our way back to our primordial love of Earth, back to the places that have shaped us as dwellers and as pilgrims – our own earthly inheritance. Ideal for those who write and those who want to write. Bring a notebook and pen.
