Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation & Peace
Our new spiritual ecology programme starts in September 2016. We are seeking 10 exceptional and visionary young adults (between 20 and 32 years) – individuals with committed spiritual lives, who are passionate about the Earth, and have the potential to be catalysts for real change. Young people who recognise the need to create a future that is rooted in the values of interconnectedness, service, stewardship, and reverence for nature.
They will be part of a unique 9 month journey which includes residential retreats in wild places, field trips to see spiritual ecology in action, project development support, and mentorship from some deep wisdom keepers.
Can you help us reach out far beyond our existing networks and find the people we need to invest in? Please forward information to friends and post the link on your fb page.
We are looking for participants from a diverse range of backgrounds including but not limited to: environmentalists, community builders, educators, craftspeople, farmers, chefs, designers, architects, builders, civil servants, entrepreneurs, journalists and writers, artists, musicians and film makers. The program is open to people from all faith backgrounds as well as those without any direct religious or spiritual affiliation.
The fellowship follows a nine month life-changing journey for ten selected participants, all of whom will receive full scholarships for programme tuition. All accommodation for the retreats will be provided at no cost, and a stipend will be provided for travel and food expenses. The programme includes two residential retreats, an international field trip, study weekends, and 1:1 mentoring from Tiokasin Ghosthorse (a remarkable Lakota elder), Adam Bucko (a powerful voice on the role of the younger generation in radical social change), and others.
