"Another is that the earth sustains our life with its magical weave of infinite relationships of mutual dependency between all life- forms and the elements that sustain them- water, air, soil, minerals, sunlight... Some call this peerless magic, "ecology," or "nature." Others see it as the grace that animates creation." - Susan Murphy from The book 'Spiritual Ecology, The Cry of the Earth' 🌿#deepecology #spiritualecology

"Where is the fine line, I wonder, as I smooth the bone folder tool across wrinkled air-dried paper handmade from jeans and hemp: between tools that gently aid and tools that replace the spirit that connects living things together." ... "Why abandon the land because it is hard? Why abandon our dreams because we are told they are crazy? Where do we really get the framework for right and wrong these days, in a world that tells us that buying plastic and sitting in a fluorescent lit room is more natural of a God than a day spent picking serviceberries under a July sun." Excerpts from a blog post I hope to get out into the world before I hit the wild hills on foot for the next month. ...
To all those serving the process, serving the greater connection to the world around us, I commend you. I forever encourage you and want you to succeed, whatever that looks like; for the sake of the land itself.

California in the 22nd century: A vision and a plan for sustainability and surplus. After the successful progression past petrol-based energy and with the new ability to desalinate ocean water on an industrial scale, Californians begin to reestablish long-broken habitat systems, creating food sheds of wild resources that support a population of over 80 million people.

Deep Ecology workshop with my beautiful @michaeltunni - connecting with our Mother Earth #johnseed #deepecology #earthspirit #tehenga 🌏🌞💫🌱🕊

We came from the forest and it's back to the forest we must go! Learning to live in co-creation with nature is fundamental to our survival on this planet.

"Care flows naturally if the “self” is widened and deepened so that protection of free Nature is felt and conceived as protection of ourselves … Just as we need not morals to make us breathe … so if your “self” in the wide sense embraces another being, you need no moral exhortation to show care … You care for yourself without feeling any moral pressure to do it—providing you have not succumbed to a neurosis of some kind, developing self-destructive tendencies, or hating yourself."
Arne Naess #deepecology

Pictures from our third WILD event a couple weeks ago ❤️ before sharing a delicious wild food and vegan feast we had the honour of listening to Alastair McIntosh, an incredible environmental and social activist, author and pilgrim.
In the course of his talk he touched on war, trauma and the great work of healing to which we’re called in these our troubled times. Asking how do we stop ourselves from burning out or selling out? How, in practice, can we tap into the healing power of land, its people and a sense of place? How, especially in the modern world?
A real-life storytelling about burning issues seeking to raise us up into the joy of life. Thank you to @42acresretreat and @petershamnurseries - such inspiring, generous and visionary organisations to partner with 🔮💚🙌
Beautiful photographs as always from @annietobinphoto ❤️

We are either in times of great awakening, or great destruction, and very likely a mix of both. And, within that realization comes the inevitability that we are the ones who will determine which. Never underestimate the power of your dreams, visions, and choices.
It seems that crisis is inevitable but can manifest in 2 options; either internal work as a personal and spiritual crisis, or, if that is resisted, it will take the form of an ecological crisis where Gaia will throw our unresolved subconscious as a species back at us. - dandelion

Toward noon, I notice that my shadow seems to be seeping into my flesh; by midday it has been almost entirely absorbed through the pores of my skin, and -- apart from a smidgen of shade is no where to be seen.

The shadow, my personal night, has enfold ed within me, become indistinguishable from me.

Do we notice this?
Do we feel somehow different at high noon, when the darkness has seeped into us?

Do we feel the weight of our own shadow, the press of its difficult knowledge against the inside of our torso and skull?
Is it the shadow itself that looks out through our eyes at midday? --David Abram

I see as the night slips away it leaves behind a slender part of itself, a splinter of dusk reaching from my body to the western horizon ---a piece of night that slowly detaches from the mother darkness, gradually gathering itself toward the spot where I stand. --David Abram

Art, art and more art at the OCF. To wander the paths for the three days of Oregon Country Fair is inspiring. Music, art, vaudeville, food. What's not to like!

Those who are enlightened never stop forging themselves. The realization of such masters cannot be expressed well in words or by theories. The most perfect actions echo the patterns found in nature.

Direct talk to soul. From a black river to a splendorous and boarderless garden of sky.

With magnificent grace the sun bids this day farewell.
Now as the heat lifts and the birds sing in sweet relief, so the shadows seep out from under rock and crack.
The crepuscular is upon us and from their daytime roosts, the night walkers stretch claws and open savage eyes.
This is the time of transition when day and night pass each other with sensuous abandon.

Let us remember that when we give our excess to you, it is transformed into new life.

Help us to remember that we contain the tenacity to overcome, as modeled so beautifully by the Earth and her obvious evolutionary and cyclical processes.

Teach us to love the life-death-life cycle and to know that what harms us will fade into ashes, if we can bring ourselves to let go.

A well deserved rest after painting faces all day at the Oregon Country Fair.

To still the mind, breath in, breath out. Feel the rhythm of your breath, the song of life, pulsating as you breathe in and out, in and out.

It's not far; It's near. It's not expensive; it's free. You don't need nothing but you. It's the Earth, and It has been like this for centuries. You are "nature" when you are not a visitor but a part of the very nature. You realise all that life means when you are nature.

How monotonous our speaking becomes when we speak only to ourselves! And how insulting to the other beings – to foraging black bears and twisted old cypresses – that no longer sense us talking to them, but only about them, as though they were not present in our world…Small wonder that rivers and forests no longer compel our focus or our fierce devotion. For we walk about such entities only behind their backs, as though they were not participant in our lives. Yet if we no longer call out to the moon slipping between the clouds, or whisper to the spider setting the silken struts of her web, well, then the numerous powers of this world will no longer address us – and if they still try, we will not likely hear them.” ― David AbramHow

👏🏼Today we did a tree themed workshop in the park! We made beaded birch bark amulets, then played a fun game where we partnered up 👫...one person blindfolded and the other leading the blindfolded friend to a special tree that they'd sense by touching, feeling, smelling...🙈then the person would be lead back to the meeting place and go on an adventure to find their special tree, this time reintegrating sight back into their sensorium! 👀And of course the participants switched roles when they found 'the' tree. 🌳The kids loved it and the results were amazing! If you work with groups of any age and capacity, try it! 💥so fun, and a great practice in mindfulness. 👌🏼
Thanks Art City art squad for joining me today! @hannahglinski @glitterplaza ~
