Eco-spirituality for Teachers

  • Rahamim Ecology Centre 34 Busby Street South Bathurst, NSW, 2795 Australia (map)

Set in the historic grounds of Rahamim Ecology Centre, Bathurst, NSW, this two-day live-in immersion experience introduces participants to the tradition and practices of ecological spirituality while getting to know other teachers in a supportive environment. 

In his encyclical Laudato Si’,Pope Francis invites us to explore integral ecology and bring to the centre of the Christian tradition a spirituality which honours the sacred at the heart of life’s unfolding. In the context of the current ecological crisis, these practices can motivate new action, expressed in Pope Francis' new 8th Work of Mercy: ‘Show Mercy to our Common Home’.

The hands-on, experiential program will include practices that empower beginning teachers to facilitate eco-spirituality themselves, allowing the natural world to nurture our spirituality through prayer, ritual, food and creative expression.

Completing this course will contribute to 10 hours of NESA registered PD addressing 6.2.2 and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW
