If we surrendered to Earth's intelligence
we could rise up rooted, like trees.
~ rainier maria rilke
We have been and continue to be living in incredibly challenging times. There is much uncertainty in the world and it’s taking its toll on all of us – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Many of us are being stretched to our limits or even beyond. We are being asked to give to our families, friends, in our work relationships and in our communities. Many of us are feeling a sense of depletion, loss of hope and many layers of grief that we cannot even yet understand.
We are between endings and beginnings. This can be a very unsettling place to be as our natural human tendency is to seek order, stability, and a sense of control over life and our experiences. In many ways, the universe is asking us to let go and step into a new way of being with ourselves, others, and the world around us.
Writing about and sharing your experience with the land helps bring an aliveness and rooted connection to the experience. It could be your favorite place to walk, the robin fledgling that fell out of the nest and survived, watching new, green pine cones growing on the Norway spruce, a yearning to move to a different location. Our experiences with nature can be a soothing balm, as well as an insightful teacher.
In many spiritual and healing traditions, meditation, mindfulness, and contemplation practices offer a vehicle for developing our foundation to respond rather than react, to go within and to open our hearts rather than shut ourselves down. We are one element in the world. Deepening our connection with the land is a bridge to the new world.
is an invitation to build your own foundation through writing, restorative practices, and an online community of heart centered beings journeying together to cultivate change in ourselves and our relationships.
As we plant seeds and build a conscious relationship with the land, we grow and flourish, and this can be carried out into our lives, our relationships and our world.
