CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY WORKSHOP: The Hidden Presence of Christ in Nature

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY WORKSHOP: The Hidden Presence of Christ in Nature

With Rev. Bastiaan Baan

Saturday, March 17th 10:00am - 9:00pm at Ecoheal and Sunday March 18th 12:45 Lecture at Emerson Waldorf School Brown Wing

“... In herb, stone, sea and light’s pure glance shineth His childlike countenance.”

Usually we just hear these words of Novalis as a poetic expression. However, for Novalis and a few others who are able to see behind the veil of the physical world, one can recognize the hidden presence of Christ in nature. In this conference, we will try – in several lectures, in singing, and in a workshop where we observe plants – to uncover the veil.

Suggested Donation: 60-$85 Registration: Christiancommunitync.org via PayPal or by mail to: Christian Community, PO Box 16331, Chapel Hill, NC 27516

to Feb 4

New Method of Cob Construction for Affordable, Healing, Elegant Housing

Please join us for this 3-day workshop and become a part of this exciting beginning of a journey that will bring a solution to the health challenges of conventional living environments, especially for low-income and vulnerable residents.  This workshop will give you knowledge, experience, co-professional conversations, imagination, and hands-on practicum, and will empower you to leverage the relationships that develop with fellow participants to bring this revolutionary building solution to your community and beyond.

Dani Mouawad’s “green building methodology” is well below the cost of conventional construction, can be quickly constructed, and will last centuries. (U.S. Patent 9803382).

Dani’s design blends Nature and Science and will serve those most hurt by today’s global environmental/economic challenges. We believe that these folks deserve to live in a home that makes Mother Nature smile. 

This 3-day systemic workshop at the Ecoheal Center offers the opportunity for us to learn together and collaborate with Dani and the various professionals who have been involved. (Engineers, architects, builders, economists, planning department, etc.)
