Our sincere appreciation and thanks to speaker and retreat guide on Earth-centered themes, Maureen Wild, for her visually gorgeous and spiritually inspiring presentation on Sacred Pathways to Earth Healing: A focus on the teachings of Thomas Berry.

Maureen’s personal time of study with this brilliant champion of the earth infused her presentation with immediacy and warmth, as did her wonderful photography illustrating some of the natural wonders of our home and native island. Maureen illuminated Berry’s challenge to us all to take up the Great Work of healing our world through our collective transition into Gaia consciousness and embracing of a new Ecozoic (Ecological) Age.

Timely inspiration indeed for our turbulent world, with a positive emphasis on the many ways Gabriolans are embracing actions of sustainability and deep respect for our shared home.
