The knowledge to improve our social well-being and to find solutions to the ecological crisis are within us. As a Learning Facilitator my work is to focus on contemplative side as well as solutions but the main goal is awareness of the impact of our carbon and social footprints on the ecology within and around us.
During the discourses I facilitate, the philosophical, social and spiritual aspects of life have space in our dialogue. This is to allow us a time-out from doing and acting and look closer at what we are doing and if there is a better way.

Roz has a Master degree in Social Ecology from Goddard College in Vermont, U.S.A. Along with the academic understanding of the subject he worked in Community Supported Agriculture. For years he has been writing on the effects of our social behavior on the environment. More recently he has been writing about the relation between our social behavior and our spiritual understanding. In his humble opinion he has contributed to Social Ecology by sparkling it with a bit of spiritual sensibility which this field of study deserves to have. At the same time, he sees himself as an ignorant one who doesn't know when he is humble and when he is arrogant.
From early on he questioned the wisdom of social behaviors which contributed to the man made problems such as war and famine. The predicament that Millennial and Generation Z folks find themselves in is what he has felt since childhood.
In 1981, before global warming became a topic of discussion, he gravitated towards schools of thoughts which would question the way we use our natural resources and the way we design our homes and infrastructure. For years he was baffled by why majority of people didn't see how we needed to change our designs so we rely less on fossil fuel. Then he studied the psychology of addiction and other emotional set backs to soul's growth.
He has come to understand that there’s mystery which is beyond human intellectual capacity to understand. Life, as much as we think it can be understood through physics, biology, sociology, psychology and even philosophy, it has this kind of mystery. We can study and try to figure out how we feel love, how a flower blooms to how black hole is created and Roz is aware of the need for scientific pursuit but understanding this mystery is beyond intellectual capacity. As he has learned from Masters such as Molana, Hafez and Kabir, it is through the development of the soul that we can begin to understand this mystery.
