Earthing our Faith after COVID-19
with Diarmuid O'Murchu

This program will be conducted via Zoom.

COVID-19 is a wake-up call for our species. Like other viruses of the past 20 years, the link with the abuse and exploitation of other creatures (such as the bats in the Wuhan market) is now indisputable. Our relationship with Earth, and all its creatures, needs to change substantially, and to do that we need an Earth-centered faith more than anything else. We will explore these challenges in this workshop/conference.
