Both Covid-19 and the UN Climate Change Conference in 2021, highlight all too vividly how precarious life on our planet has become and the urgent challenges arising for all of us at this turbulent time. The implications for people of faith, and particularly our responsibilities around eco-justice will be the focus of this weeklong retreat/workshop.
Part of the Eco@Genesis series designed to create a unique consciousness and awareness about the crisis facing creation. Genesis hosts programs and events that activate profound felt experiences with Earth, the animated life force of creation, and tangible actions of sustainability.
Beloved to the Genesis community for 20 years, this retreat will mark Diarmuid's last on-site visit to Genesis.
