Special Guest Speaker Mike Nickerson at Healing & Freeing Retreat

Join us in this great opportunity to hear a well-known speaker, Mike Nickerson, Canadian Author, Speaker, Researcher, ENVIRONMENTALIST

Will be the Weekend Guest Speaker at the Healing and Freeing Retreat July 15 – 22, 2011

Mike is from Lanark, Ontario but his message of sustainable living is universal and so timely in our society today..
So what does sustainable living have to do with spirituality and consciousness? Everything!
Every single day, every single choice you make from what you eat, what kind of a car you drive to how much water or electricity you use affects the environmental resources, the future of the planet and our collective happiness. Every day you can choose to make these choices consciously from a point of unity for the whole planet, rather than the singularity of selfishness or greed.

Mike explains where his passion came from for spreading this message, how economic growth and decline really works, how to live within planetary limits, voluntary simplicity and so much more! Mike offers ideas and explains how we can become part of the solution, and be guardians of the Earth to ensure a viable and promising future.

Mike leaves us with the question of direction – “where we are going, depends on what we see as the goal for our future” and shares some breakthrough ideas of how we can work less and have more, as we take on a mature role of caring for our home – planet Earth..

In the context of today’s society, a more-bigger-better mentality could mean the end of us. "Now that we have reached planetary limits and our biggest problems come from our size, we have to look at and reassess whether we want to continue to grow until we drop or aim for sustainability." The industrialized world’s consumer culture of the 20th century is where the culpability lies. According to Nickerson, "We are human beings, not human havings."
