Reconnect with Self and Nature: Short Courses at Schumacher College

Living in the modern world, it’s easy to forget our connection to nature and the environment.  There was a time when all of humanity lived as animals in harmony with our ecosystem.  Yet as far removed as we may have become with our buildings and processed foods and reality TV and crazy technological gadgets, we are coming to realize that we cannot truly be separate.  Our actions have an effect on the environment, and a healthy environment is what allows us to live.  By reconnecting with nature, we move toward a more sustainable future for our planet and a more holistic existence for ourselves.

Below is a short list of courses offered at Schumacher College for 2016 with a focus on reconnecting with one's self back to nature and our relationship with the Earth and eachother.
