      We’re holding an Earth Day event at the Labyrinth at St. Pauls.

      The labyrinth will be decorated in a natural style!

      Deep inside, even we city-dwellers know that our relationship to nature goes beyond peering out from behind the drapes to see whether it’s raining or not.

      We are thirsty for an opportunity to re-connect with nature, to recreate the relationship many of us had as children with the environment around us.

      The focus of our Earth Day Walk is awareness of the depth of our connection to the natural world, awareness of the ways in which it nourishes and comforts us, of the complexity and beauty with which it surrounds us.

      We often come to the Labyrinth looking for insight into what we need for healing. This is a chance to ask how we might heal our relationship with the natural world. How can we be more present to it? Can we be a part of its healing?

      Apr 22, 2010 7:00pm – 9:00pm
      St. Paul’s Labyrinth at Davie & Jervis.
