In an era of global extinctions there is a new found awareness of humanity's inter-relationship with the natural world. This awakening is helping draw attention to the strength of these relationships and the life-giving gifts - air, awe, water, joy, food, and more - they provide.
Some describe this reconnecting as a necessary part of The Great Turning, the globe shift from an industrial growth to life sustaining society.
We work with the belief that all relationships need tending and care. They require skills that must be honed. It is a practice. We also believe that our ecological crisis is due, in large part, to the neglect of our life giving relationships with the natural world. We have lost focus, lost our way. And, as a result, we have lost many of the skills needed to keep these relationships vibrant and enduring.
The idea for this project was born of hope and curiousity. Would it be possible to gather, elevate, share and honor that which sustains, nourishes, and provides us life? Would it be possible to rediscover, gather and share the skills and practices required to mend and tend these life-giving relationships? If so, could we help co-catalyze a collective, planetary cultural reprioritization for what is life sustaining and life giving. That, which we call the sacred.
We believe it is possible.
We acknowledge that what we seek to accomplish is not novel. In fact, it is ancient practice, used to this day in some cultures around the world. Ultimately, this project seeks to rebirth, give voice and normalize that sensing which we believe dwells deep, inside our collective DNA.
