“Our leaders are not taking climate action seriously but we can’t give up. As I live in the Congo where we don’t have peace, sometimes activists are targeted and I must go slowly.” - Remy Zahiga
The climate crisis and global biodiversity loss require us to reconnect with the sacred, living Earth and with one another in more powerful ways. We may grow to understand the ways that life on Earth seeks to become allied with us, and find ways to act in better partnership. We can unite with that awesome power that gives us life to protect and restore its vitality in joyful co-creation.
Methane leaks from fracking are a huge source of global warming emissions. An immediate fracking ban is a crucial and powerful way to limit climate change.
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.
Equatorial rainforests are sacred places. People around the world are coming together to recognize this fact and work to save Earth’s Three Green Hearts: Amazonia, Congo, and Sundaland. The Novasutras Movement is working to preserve and protect each of them. Learn more about it and join us on Tuesday, August 25th 2:30pm PDT / 21:30 UTC.
"The aim of this Fast for the Climate is to presence the lived reality of the unseen millions around the world who are living with food insecurity and starvation due to climate instability and the billions who will certainly follow if we do not take radical action to avert the worst effects of climate change." ~Keith Runyan
In Novasutras, we help one another deal with our emotional responses to the climate and extinction crises through practices like meditation and shinrin-yoku. Developing deeper awareness of ubuntu and agaya enhances our emotional resilience. Dr. Michelle Merrill, founder of the Novasutras Movement, discussed some of these ideas in an interview for an article about climate grief that was published last month.
Novasutras recognizes that we are about to experience profound societal transformation, one way or another. How do we envision and work for the best outcomes, while consciously preparing for the worst outcomes?
