Ecospirituality supports well-being in people of all ages. Our allies at The Resilient Activist have great resources for nurturing kids to maintain their resilience through a healthy relationship to living Nature. These include an upcoming class for families, Nature Stories videos and recommended activities, plus links to research on the relationship between climate, nature connection, and mental health for young people.
Our sacred planet is experiencing challenging transitions, induced by the way the actions of humans are changing the global climate. To heal and restore the living world, and to protect humans who are suffering from the effects of the climate emergency, we humans must unite across many divides to transform how we live on our beautiful planet. Novasutras will participate in the Sacred People, Sacred Earth Day of Climate Action March 11th.
Each of the twelve principles of permaculture is a manifestation of agaya and ubuntu. They are in close alignment with Novasutras core principles:
Life is sacred.
Change is essential, inevitable and important.
Complexity and maturity emerge from cooperative relationships.
The beauty of the living world is to be savored, honored, celebrated and protected.
Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer – why you should read this book, share it with your friends, and rejoice in its powerful lessons for abiding in ubuntu and agaya!
Science continues to reveal the complex intelligence of the Plant Kindom* upon which we utterly depend for the food we eat and the oxygen we breathe.
