In our fourth ecospiritual news livestream, Michelle talked about her experiences researching Sumatran orangutans. She reflects on recent wildfires and their relationship to colonialism and climate disruption. In Novasutras, we reaffirm our commitment to Earth’s Three Green Hearts, and offer actions to resist fossil fuel expansion and to protect vital tropical rainforest, indigenous lands, and orangutan habitat. Connecting the Corners practice sends wishes for agaya and ubuntu to all beings on Earth.
