Meet Sister Linda Neil: Presenter on Earth-Concern Issues


Meet Sister Linda Neil, CSJ! Sister Linda is the first Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet from the Albany Province to complete a master’s degree in Earth Literacy from St. Mary-of-the-Wood College, IN.

A native of Hammonton, NJ, Sister Linda received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from St. Elizabeth’s College in Convent Station, NJ, and a master’s degree in religious studies from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia. She is presently a teacher of theology at Catholic Central High School, Troy, NY.
 
Sister Linda is now available to present a workshop series entitled Encountering Earth: Reclaiming the Human in the Web of Life. The series features three workshop presentations, Earth, My Home; Dreaming a New Way; and Healing Earth. The workshops will help participants to become more mindful of Earth issues and how these issues may be addressed in this time of ecological crises. Each of the three workshops weaves the information together in a PowerPoint presentation with art, music, literature, and personal and group reflection to create presentations that will help the participants create a deeper awareness of the Earth, her systems and creatures.
 
This triptych of PowerPoints, which features the artwork of Sisters Marion Honors, CSJ, incorporate the themes of the Earth Literacy Master's Degree (ELM) Program at St. Mary-of-the Wood College, IN.
 
The workshops are flexible. Each one may be used individually as a two-hour presentation or as a full-day experience. The three workshops may also be presented as a week-long retreat. The presentations are organic since they may be changed and grow in new ways, using different art pieces, music, poetry and reflections.
 
Consider Sister Lin’s presentations if you are interested in learning more about bioregionalism, the Cosmic Story, the web of life, healing the Earth and many other Earth-concern issues.
