Eco-spirituality workshops available

Sr. Linda Neil, CSJ is a hiker and naturalist who holds a Masters Degree from the Earth Literacy Program at St. Mary of the Woods College, and a Master’s Degree in Religious Studies from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary.

She shares her love of nature and the environment in presentations that weave art, music, poetry and story to engage hearts, inform minds and fire passions to transform and celebrate our relationship with the Earth community.  Here are some of her offerings:

Living Simply in a Consumer Society: listening to the “cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor” amidst the din of our consumer culture.

Earth, Our Common Home: Exploring our place in the web of life through the lens of Laudato Si’.

Healing Earth with the Beatitudes: Deepening our awareness of how humans are wounding the planet and reflecting on ways to be a healing presence. 

Celebrating the Bliss of Being: The “Beatitudes of Being” are the path to the fullness of being human and holy in this precious life of ours. We take time to experience the grandeur of being and the call to deepen our delight in living.

Celebrating Simple Living: We pause to consider ways to hone our life-style for the sake of our own sanity, for the good of our dear neighbors of every species and for the benefit of the Earth. (This presentation uses the Corporal Works of Mercy and Laudato Si' as a lens to reflect on simple living)
