Deep Time – A Contemplative Journey
with Dr Louise Livingstone
4 x Wednesday evenings:
7th, 14th, 21st & 28th June 2023
7pm – 9pm (UK time) via Zoom
In this online contemplative journey, we move into deep time, communing deeply with the Earth and opening to hear her story; from her birth to the present day – a journey of 4.6 billion years. Each week, through combining theory with the poetic imagination (using the framework of Heart Sense), we move through 1.5 billion years of the Earth’s story in deep contemplation, travelling Earth’s timeline. As we journey with the Earth, and hear her miraculous story, we will expand our hearts to contemplate how this deep relating with our precious Earth may transform us; as we come to experience and understand how we are each made of Earth’s flesh, opening our awareness to hear an ancient heart that beats inside all of life.
Week one: Introduction and Earth’s formative years (4.6 billion years – 3 billion years)
Week two: Earth gives birth to life (3 billion years – 1.5 billion years)
Week three: Complex life, death, rebirth and the Anthropocene (1.5 billion years – present day)
Week four: Grounding and reflections
It is preferable, for the maximum learning experience – specifically in relation to the sharing spaces – to attend each week ‘live’. However, for those unable to attend live, there will be a recording available after the session has taken place. The recording will be of all contemplation exercises and theory. Please note that personal sharing spaces will not be recorded to respect the sacred space of those who are sharing within the live group setting.
