Welcome to Mutual Flourishing


Join me to explore ways to connect self-care to Earth care.

Mutual Flourishing for Self and Earth means moving into ways of living that honor all of Earth’s life forms.  This includes people and other mammals, insects, plant life, air, water, soil, and all ecosystems.  Mutual Flourishing means acknowledging and honoring the interdependence that is a scientific and spiritual reality.

I especially welcome women who are seeking to connect self-care to Earth-care, or to experience conscious embodiment and Earth-care in relation to each other.  Male readers are welcome, also, but in a time when women especially struggle with honoring our bodily wisdom in a culture that often opposes it, I focus on helping a primarily female audience to discover how our own needs can be addressed in tandem with ecological needs.  In ways that seem surprising at first but then obvious, our own bodies and Earth’s body are facing similar crises and similar opportunities for healing.

You are in the right place if you are interested in how your personal well-being connects to ecological well-being.  You’re in the right place if you want to know more on this topic, want to participate in a supportive community, and want visionary leadership from me regarding thriving in mutual flourishing.

Reweaving and Restoration means re-connecting our lives to the natural world, for mutual healing.  It means restoring human health (physical, mental, and spiritual) as we restore our damaged planet.

Do you want to feel hope about the future of humanity and the Earth?

If you are committed to self-development, worried about environmental problems, yet want to be hopeful and involved, you’ve found the right community.

If your self-development quest is ever derailed by fear or anger about the environmental problems that seem so menacing, please join me in vision and action toward a flourishing future.

If you passionately love the natural world and seek to live from this place of love, please read, learn, comment, and contribute here.

If you feel anxiety when you hear the latest news about climate change, pollution, resource depletion, species extinction, and other indicators of ecological trouble, join me for considering how our personal attitudes and lifestyle choices can contribute for the good.

If you feel an inner desire to live in harmony with the plant and animal species with whom we share the Earth, please consider my offerings: a growing online community here and on Facebook, this blog, a 2014 telesummit that brings together leading voices in human-Earth flourishing, and eventual e-courses and other materials that will lead and inspire you into living a life of Mutual Flourishing.

I’m so glad you’ve joined me on this journey toward vibrant health for people and planet.

    Thank YOU, Rose. My advocacy or leadership are only effective when others respond with interest. Thank you for caring.

    I have a similar passion, although I wrote my manifesto on another issue I’m passionate about, too.

    I began my health site NuHealthNews.com on the premise that our earth and inhabitants are all one body. What we do to our own bodies, we do to her. When we pollute, we poison ourselves.

    Thanks for speaking it.

      Thanks for your interest, Fay. I’ll take a look at your site and see what you are up to! I believe it’s vital for many people to work on the human/natural world connection from multiple angles.

    Blessings of hope, Chara.
    I really like your language of creating a “heart centered business.”
    Describing yourself as a teacher of “mutual flourishing” has been my experince of you and I am sure that your on-line courses and other ways of educating will be well received.
    You have my continued support and encouragement for all of your efforts.
