In her presentationWalking and Wandering: An EcoSpiritual Journey,” eco-spiritual artist Imogene Drummond shares her three month “walkabout” in Scotland and Spain in 2017. Fascinated by the convergence of sea, sky, and soil, she focused on the Hebridian Isles in Scotland, and the countryside and coast of Catalonia, Spain. Alluring images illuminate her journey and the process of wandering, or as cultural historian Rebecca Solnit calls it, “getting lost.” Solnit clarifies that “to be lost is to be fully present.”

After 35 years creating vibrant art and films, Imogene felt an inexplicable urge to disconnect from her familiar world and explore foreign lands with no agenda except to walk in nature places as a spiritual practice.

Traveling solo on public transportation, lodging with locals, and walking on country roads in remote areas, Imogene discovered some of wandering’s surprising benefits. These include opportunities to open oneself to fresh perspectives and insights, forge other identities, and “create new maps” (spiritually, neurologically, and psychologically). Foremost was the possibility for newfound vitality by facing and embracing the unknown. In conclusion, she’ll share what has changed for her now. Presentation followed by Q & A.
