This integrative project, “A Mini-Sabbatical with Earth Literacy” grew out of my
own year-long sabbatical at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College where I enrolled in the
Masters of Arts Program in Earth Literacy. It was everything that I think a sabbatical is
meant to be — a time of rest, relaxation, intellectual growth and stimulation as well as an
energizing and renewing experience for my spirit.
