“And forget not that the earth longs to feel your bare feet, and the wind longs to play with your hair.” ~ Khalil Gibran
Caring for the Earth’s body is a step forward but not the most crucial one. The root of all the harm we’ve done is that we’ve been treating Her like a separate, inanimate and unconscious object. We must adjust our attitudes and humbly restore our relationship with this ancient and generous being. Thus this section is all about remembering (in our being, not in our mind) we are part of the complex being we know as the Earth, and bringing that relationship to life again.
We each have our own personal way of communing with the Earth, so the pages below are by no means a complete list. Personal contributions/experiential accounts for any of these practices (or others not listed) are very welcome.
