Awareness and response: Styrofoam litter on a creekside trail

When you walk outdoors, what things do you see that cause you to react with outrage, with sadness, with shame and disappointment for our befoibled human species? Thinking about styrofoam litter provides an example of how to transform the energy of those reactions into responses that enhance agaya and ubuntu.

Allegiance to Gratitude

Thanksgiving can become a celebration of agaya and ubuntu, through the Native American tradition of the "Thanksgiving Address." What are you grateful for? How does this bring us together to abide in ubuntu and agaya?

Roots of Agaya

Agaya came from merging the words agape and Gaia. Gaia references the Gaia Theory that Earth systems interact to promote life's resilience. Agape is divine, altruistic love.
