“The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.”― John Burroughs
Please join us this Sunday for a FREE delightful Community Conversationexploring the theme of WONDERMENT in place. We turn our attention to the outdoors, walking and talking together at Wood Chuck Lodge, the home of naturalist John Burroughs, as part of our Community Conversations co-hosted with Good Work Institute. Always FREE, always for anyone. 3-5pm 7/29
Prompts for discussion: Attention is the beginning of love, or as the poet Mary Oliver says, it's the beginning of devotion or worship. How do we attend to our place? How does the intention of our attention change our experience of our place? What is most calling our attention in our place? How can we create opportunity for wonderment in a culture more attached to screens than leaves of grass? Why return to nature as guru? What is our understanding and connection to agriculture? What do we need to change about our relationship to agriculture in our place? What is the culture of our place?
* Prompts have been crafted and inspired by our monthly reading list, no prior reading necessary to participate
