And God Saw That It Was Good | Individual Study Guide


Join us for the launch of an exciting new four-session, self-guided offering from the Center for Spirituality in Nature: And God Saw That It Was Good: A Spirituality Course Accompanying Ken Burns’s film The National Parks: America’s Best Idea. Over four sessions, this self-paced online program will offer written study guides supported by stunning video clips of the national parks from Ken Burns's popular film. Whether you are visiting the national parks this summer, or are loving them from afar, this program will enhance your understanding and enjoyment. This Individual Guide offers step-by-step guidance for experiencing the program material at your own pace. Each session is designed to be done in 60 or 90 minutes, but you might want to take more time with the material. The guide includes: • Background material for each session • Suggested structure for each session • Opening meditation • Introduction to each session (with a bonus introduction to the entire course) • Film clip (approximately 15 to 20 minutes) • Deepening questions • Closing prayer The format is designed to offer both academic and spiritual involvement with the material. Feel free to move at your own pace and engage the parts that are most meaningful to you, taking them in any order you wish. Experiencing our national parks is a thrilling and moving adventure -- even through film. We hope you enjoy this journey and find new and deepened connections to Earth and the Divine through your studies. Join us for a live online kickoff event on May 7th at 7pm!
