Heaven and Earth Workshop
Dan McKanan and Steffen Schneider, presenters
April 21st, 4:30 to 9pm, and April 22nd, 9am to 5pm
Hawthorne Valley Farm & School
Hawthorne Valley is pleased to host this workshop that deals with the question: Are farms the places where heaven meets earth? Professor Dan McKanan of Harvard Divinity School will follow diverse spiritual communities as they go back to the land—by creating church and school gardens, establishing eco-villages, celebrating the sacraments with the four elements, practicing carbon farming, and participating in the global food sovereignty movement. He will also trace the spiritual history of organic agriculture, identifying the spiritual teachings of Rudolf Steiner as one seed of the movement and highlighting the ways practitioners of many spiritual paths have collaborated since the very beginning. Hands-on sessions with farmers and gardeners will introduce participants to farming practices that reach up to the spirit and meditative practices that keep us grounded on earth. Not everyone can be a farmer, but everyone who eats can and should be part of a farm community. This workshop will show you how.
