We are the invisible majority!
There is a growing unease in all of us as the effects of our lifestyle on the environment becomes ever more present. If you’re here on this site, I need not mention the multiple ways our modern lifestyle is taxing the natural world beyond its means. I’m not here to tell you where we are, but where we can go together.
I’m excited to tell you that this site is becoming a gathering place for those who are creating community around values that place the natural world at the center of our systems of meaning. For too long we have taken a human invention – the economic system – and subordinated the natural world to its rules. We did not create, nor can we recreate the natural system, but we CAN recreate the economic system if we dig into the deep soil of our lives and pull to the surface those rich values of connection, respect, frugality, and love that promote cooperation, harmony and life.
This spring the work of Spirit of the Land will continue in Vancouver and Victoria with the Caring for All Creation course. This offers others the chance to share the work we did in Fall 2013, and continue the work through live broadcasts of meetings and sharing the journey on this blog.
By gathering together we are able to promote that longing for a healthy relationship with our planet we all share. We can be inspired by the work we are all doing individually to come into right relationship, and build a sustainable system on the strength and tenacity of grass roots.
