This workshop taught by Kazi is meant to be an intense immersion into DEEP ECOLOGY to make a comprehensive connection between our environmental issues and our world’s problems. Special guest speaker is Matt Gosser, current gallery director at NJIT, previously urban planner and architect who salvages and up-cycles. Other guest speakers are Abe Gruswitz, expert in cooperative and communal living, and Mesha Allen, an urban wellness champion. Also presenting are Marcie Barth, an NCMC co-founder, and Kamilah Crawley, a public health education specialist.

The diseases of civilization including racism, war, poverty, pollution, agri-business, depletion of resources, drought and famine — all stemming from root causes of greed and fear — have created a global ecological crisis, especially Climate Change. It’s a workshop that requires an open mind and heart and a willingness to explore not just practical solutions but to go deep in our ecological consciousness. The workshop will include some optional preparatory homework, questions for contemplation, practical applications, and simple daily mindfulness exercises. Follow-up resources will be included to help students go deeper on themes from the workshop. Vegetarian lunch included.
