Through the prism of Poetry, Spirituality
and a Sense of Place,

we will explore our relationship with the Earth, while facing the crises of

climate change, fracking and the scarcity of available resources.
We are honored to welcome 
Margie Swedish and The Peace Poets to Homecoming Farm.
 

Margie Swedish is the Founder of The Center for New Creation,

Blogger of Spirituality and Ecological Hope, 

Pilgrim to the Alberta Tar Sands, 

and author of the new book

Living Beyond the “End of the World”: A Spirituality of Hope. 

Join us as Margie shares her reflections on her pilgrimage to the Alberta tar sands and her insights into the ecological crises we are facing, including their impact on our own Sense of Place.
This is not just a political or economic crisis; it is also deeply spiritual. It has become obvious we must not only live differently, we must Be differently.

 

We will be joined by The Peace Poets, a community based arts collective from New York City. Their powerful performances move the spirit and touch the heart as they open spaces for all people to embrace their role as leaders in the creation of more just and loving communities.

Please join us!

We will be joined by a number of organizations on Long Island who are involved in asking similar questions and seeking hope and answers together.  If your organization  would like to be a part of this event, please contact S. Jeanne Clark at 631-842-6000, Ext. 338 or at Earthhomej@aol.com
