We present our contemplative and community-connected course, The Perennial Turn in Ag and Culture, part of the New Perennials Project (NPP). Inspired by The Land Institute’s work developing a natural systems agriculture, NPP investigates education and community engagement to promote foundational change in human consciousness and ways of being, for repair of human and planetary health. Readings, discussions and contemplative practices introduce multiple perspectives and ways of knowing. Community-connected learning helps us generate understanding of frameworks, strategies and challenges of change organizations in education, creative and healing arts, food systems and faith communities. The course inspires deep questioning from ontological/epistemological levels to methods utilized in community action. We explore Western science, multiple philosophies and numerous pathways of knowledge-development. Each session incorporates contemplative movement plus connection and awareness with/of the more-than-human world.
