As we move into this last week of Lent I have been reflecting on my physical withdrawal from every day society, re-evaluating what it means to be in community with each other and asking how can I live each day with a stronger connection to our earth.
In the Okanagan, we are fortunate that our sky is not darkened by air pollution and our water is clean. Others have not been so fortunate. As the busiest cities around the globe are decreasing activity to protect its citizens the skies are clearing. Yesterday, I heard the phrase “the lungs of the earth are clearing”.
Will we, “I” come out of this time with a stronger desire to do what I can to keep our earth healthy? I hope so - and perhaps as a community we can hold each other accountable to an even greater degree. Many lessons are being learned right now as we live with less, travel less and appreciate local.
At the Naramata Centre, we want to continue to walk with you through this transformational time and need your feedback to help us understand your needs.
Please take a few minutes to complete this online survey and we will report the results back to you by the end of April.
With much gratitude, I wish for you a time of deep meditation and reflection as we move towards a time of hope and renewal. In Community,
