How able do you feel when it comes to holding a vision of a beautiful, healing resolution to our current story of ecological crisis? Do you feel supported in keeping your focus on the good outcomes we hope for, rather than the tragic outcomes we fear?
Much of our environmental and wellness activism emphasizes the ‘bad’ outcomes we are trying to avoid: climate change, ecosystem collapse, resource depletion, cancer, rising rates of obesity and mental health disorders, etc. It’s definitely important to acknowledge the risks we face and what we need to do to avoid them.
However, I also perceive, in our global conversation about the human-Earth relationship, a lack of focus on the healing outcomes we desire. How often do you notice people talking or writing about the world of Mutual Flourishing we can create if we learn to more and more deeply harmonize our ways of living with nature’s requirements? How often do you hear people sharing inspired ideas about life without air and water pollution, what our health can become when we restore our soils, the joy we’ll feel when species extinction declines greatly, or the deep ease we will enjoy when we can feel in body, mind, and spirit that we are living in a harmonious relationship with the natural world?
I invite you to come together with me and others to share in envisioning healing outcomes for planet and people. On Sunday, July 19 at 7:00 EST/4:00 Pacific, I’ll host a free webinar in which I’ll guide you in imagining the healed future you desire for Earth and her inhabitants. We’ll relax into a shared meditation and then have time for discussion. I’ll send call-in details next week.
Please join me to craft and nurture a vision of the life on planet Earth we want to create, not the declining flourishing we fear. It’s up to us to use the power of our imaginations to call into being a healed future.
To Flourishing for all life,
