As spiritual leaders and faith communities mobilize in response to the growing threat of climate change, Earth offers an echoing call for renewal and re-grounding. As a response to this call, The BTS Center invites national leaders working fulltime and whole-heartedly at the intersection of faith and climate justice to retreat with the sacred wild and engage the gifts and lessons of nature to invigorate their spirit and inspire their work.
This three-day retreat, June 20-23, in-person at the lovely Medomak Retreat Center in Washington, Maine, held spiritual space for grief and lament, rest and reorientation. Together, we explored deep, loving, reciprocal relationships with local ecosystems as a crucial component of Earth-based activism. Through guided spiritual practice, intentional dialogue, and independent activities, leaders were invited to experience nature as a source of guidance, resilience, joy, inspiration, and hope. Enjoying the beautiful Maine landscape and nurturing connection with Spirit, nature, and one another, this retreat was intended to energize, inspire, and spiritually equip participants for the crucial work of climate activism.
