Spiritual ecology: A new relationship with the Earth
Friday 8th September
St Bridget's Church
This year, our guest speaker at the Earth Fest opening night is Dr. Justine Huxley, Director of St. Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, where she has worked for over 10 years.
Her talk will be titled "Spiritual ecology: A new relationship with the Earth". St Ethelburga's work is about enabling people from diverse backgrounds to collaborate across differences to build a global culture of peace. It works with leadership, particularly in the younger generation, with sacred activism, spiritual ecology, community reconciliation, and with refugees. St Ethelburga's programmes call us to reconnect with our deepest values and sense of meaning, and to co-create action in the world that comes from that place.
Justine has a Ph.D in psychology and also spent 5 years on the trading floor of a City investment bank - an invaluable spiritual boot camp which taught her how to remain rooted in the Real when in the midst of consumerist greed and power games.? She has a passion for bringing people together from different backgrounds and co-creating projects that speak to the needs of the time. She brings a wealth of experience in deep listening, facilitation, and working with emergent process.
She sees spiritual ecology and sacred activism as key to the regeneration that is needed at this time of global crisis. "It is a privilege to be able to share this work through St Ethelburga's, and be inspired by many others around the world. For me, spiritual ecology is about finding our own unique way to fall in love with the Earth again, allow that love to change us from the inside out, and to call forth practical action that comes from a deeper more transformative place."
Justine belongs to a Sufi Order and has been leading meditation and dreamwork groups in London for over 15 years.
