Ecoutearth: Mindfulness, Ecopsychology and Expressive Arts
Ecoutearth is a combination of mindfulness, ecopsychology, and expressive arts. Mindfulness is a practice of bringing our awareness into the present moment. When we add ecopsychology to mindfulness it becomes a practice of noticing our own experience as well as the experience of the environment around us. When we add expressive arts it brings in a new way of relating by studying and becoming present through action. Ecoutearth is about spending time in nature and taking time to listen with all of your senses to what is around you. Listen with your heart, your ears, your eyes, your toes and feet, your nose. Listen with your whole being. In this way we invite you to join in slowing down and listening to the earth, to ourselves in the earth, on the earth and with the earth.

Bring yourselves, all of your senses and anything you need to feel and be comfortable for a couple of hours outdoors. Listening to the earth can open into an exploration of creativity and we invite you to bring anything that may facilitate this for you including art supplies and/or a journal.
Ecoutearth gatherings are a free offering to facilitate an ever changing dialogue with the earth and each other. If you are so inclined to offer a donation to our development of this movement, feel free to do so. All donations will go directly into the flourishing of Ecoutearth.
