About the Placement:

Detailed Placement Description

If we are to address climate change, the destruction of nature by humanity over thousands of years of civilization, we will need to quickly embark on a journey to raise human consciousness and rediscover our interconnectedness and interdependence and co-evolution with all of nature and do the work, in humility, to repair the damage our species has done to the planet and learn to live in a way that we are of service to all of nature. The Seeger Institute is a laboratory to help people who endeavor to become their best selves in service to their communities, to nature and to the future of our planet through reconnecting with what it means to be human in the context of all of nature.
