Join PSR MDiv students, Michael Goos and Manuel Falcon Padua for a presentation and blessing ritual for the newly opened Isamaeli Mata’afa Community Garden.
They will share their vision in creating the Isamaeli Mata’afa Memorial Garden: a place for spiritual communion, community engagement, and connection. They will illustrate how we are a forest of selves, an island of life, a node in a network of nature, and a dynamic field of interconnected agents consisting of several species. Mutually supportive plant, soil, and fungal life are connected to a larger system by pollinators from elsewhere.
The event will end with a blessing ritual to officially open the garden to the public.
