Gifting Games Round II: Nature 🌾

Late Winter at Mossbrae Falls, Dunsmuir, CA

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy.

I awoke and saw that life was service.

I acted and behold, service was joy.”

Rabindranath Tagore

Best. Spring. Equinox. Ever.

Why not play The Gifting Game.. with nature?!

Would we solve climate change if enough people cuddled the Earth at the same time?

They say you need to first love yourself before you can love another. What if you really need to love Earth?

This winter I’m really getting that it’s one thing to get it or talk about it. It’s another to live and embody it. That takes slowing down. Listening. Paying attention. Humility. Love.

Putting Things In Context

How can we support the next generations of leaders to create in a more life-honoring way?

“We ought to move towards a view in which educators are understood as environmental stewards tasked with nourishing the complex and evolving ecosystem that is the human mind.”

…climate change — race — wilderness — class — historical trauma — art — grief — islamaphobia — religion — legacies of slavery — intellectual property — corporations — colonization — inheritance — fear — gender — theology — nature — spirituality — witch/hunts- music — drowning islands — healing bodies — storytelling — re/centering — meditation — indigenous knowledge — ritual — violence — somatic beings — despair — doctrine of discovery — raising a family — belonging — hope — past — present — future — space — time — love …

The times are urgent.
We must slow down.
