Practice of Healing Grandmother Earth
We believe that industrial development and un-reflected, ignorant, human-centric expansive behaviors have seriously damaged our natural environment and endangered life on earth.
Our separateness from ourselves and others includes our separation from the natural world, so evident in our ecological crisis and the devastation and mass extinctions occurring in the animal, bird, fish and insect populations.
This set of practices, titled Healing Our Relationship with Grandmother Earth, is first and foremost devoted to a spiritual reconnection, tangible and sensual reawakened awareness of the natural world as being our very body. We combine text and video educational resources with practical guided experiences in gardening and farming, land restoration, outdoor crafts through hiking and camping, and developing Inter-Being Animal relationships.
