How We Align Our Values and Our Practices
This workshop & text study will give you tools to raise awareness of your level of eco-consciousness, examining how it affects you and helping you understand the benefits of the spiritual dimensions of eco-consciousness. Specifically, we will explore how it improves other aspects of our lives, and how to approach it in an empowered rather than overwhelmed way.
