“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better”. These few days are an ecological immersion into one of the wildest ecosystems in the world, the Sabie River in the Kruger National Park. When we connect with the wilderness, parts of ourselves are awakened that have been left dormant. We begin to sense and feel the world like never before. "Through deep experience, deep questioning and deep commitment emerges deep ecology", these experiences can be deeply transformational, as once awakened to this intrinsic knowledge, we can begin to understand and reconnect with our own nature, whilst connecting with the diversity of life all around us. Some of the literature we will look to explore over the Deep Ecology Movement coined by Are Naeuss and the Gaia theory Hypothesis that explores the concept of the earth as living systems in and of itself.
Lead facilitator: Sam Chevallier. Topics and Activities include: Camping in the bush; Tracking; Silent walks; Campfires and storytelling; Ecosophy; Gaia theory explained
The Deep Ecology Platform
(1) All life has value in itself, independent of its usefulness to humans. (2) Richness and diversity contribute to life’s well-being and have value in themselves. (3) Humans have no right to reduce this richness and diversity except to satisfy vital needs in a responsible way. (4) The impact of humans in the world is excessive and rapidly getting worse. (5) Human lifestyles and population are key elements of this impact. (6) The diversity of life, including cultures, can flourish only with reduced human impact. (7) Basic ideological, political, economic, and technological structures must therefore change. (8) Those who accept the foregoing points have an obligation to participate in implementing the necessary changes and to do so peacefully and democratically.
