Sedona AZ (April 20, 2021) – Keep Sedona Beautiful (KSB) has kicked off its 41st Annual Native Plant Workshop with the first of five presentations to be held virtually. This first presentation will take place on Thursday, April 29, 2021, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. AZ time. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Native Plant Workshop was put on hold in 2020.
This free virtual presentation features Dr. Robin Weeks, who will talk about connecting with nature … in a way you might not have considered. Dr. Weeks will bring you into a place where airline tickets cannot take you; you will discover what it means to realize that you are always in communication with nature and the world around us.
We would all agree that Sedona is a unique place where most visitors and residents experience the red rocks through hiking, biking and spiritual connectivity. But there may be something even more interesting about this area that is not well-known or understood! KSB’s 2021 Native Plant Workshop Series welcomes Robin Weeks, Ph.D., to an hour-long webinar beginning at 6:00 p.m., with a 15-minute question and answer session following the presentation.
Dr. Weeks will discuss why connecting with nature means connecting with the consciousness of nature. He will explain about unconscious assumptions that might hinder our experience, and he will touch on how our ideas about science have been used to separate us. He will also cover how science can be used to help point the way back to connection and belonging. “Nature,” says Robin, “is a two-way relationship that we can become aware of.”
Robin Weeks has a Ph.D. in geophysics and is a former Professor of Earth and Space Sciences. He also holds an M.A. in Religious Studies and has personally pursued the integration of science and spirituality. It is in nature that he feels this can most easily and powerfully be achieved. Much of his teaching and writing has been focused on this topic.
The public is invited to join this free, science-based discussion by clicking here. The session will be recorded for playback on the KSB website. This workshop series is brought to you by Keep Sedona Beautiful and its Bell Rock Business sponsors. Additional information on subsequent presentations is forthcoming.
