At the root of our crisis is the belief in our separateness, and our forgetfulness or ignorance of the sacred. If we seek to teach and learn in ways that bring real healing to this world, we must turn once again to reverence of the spirit, to “the connection between our soul and the soul of the world, the knowing that we are all part of one living spiritual being” (Vaughn-Lee, 2016, p. vi)

How can postsecondary teaching and learning create authentic transformative experiences that empower learners to reconnect to the earth, recognize their interbeing,  and create change for sustainability? Dr. Burns explores spiritual connection, leadership development, relational development, ecological design, and collaborative change-making with her graduate students in sustainability courses.
