As an ecospiritual organization seeking to grow a global movement, we have many opportunities to endorse initiatives and open letters around climate, habitat protection, social justice, and the rights of Nature. These efforts are tangible, collective expressions of ubuntu and agaya in the world.
In Novasutras, we invite the co-creation of a shared spirituality to address the needs of our time. An ecospirituality developed in community can be a source of resilience and renewed meaning for people confronting the existential crises we now face. It can help bring ecoactivists into supportive spiritual community.
The Deep Transformation Network may help Novasutras to achieve our shared vision of changing the whole paradigm of civilization. It is a place where people around the world are coming together to cultivate greater awareness, compassion, and wisdom. We can collaborate on ideas that move us toward a regenerative future where all can thrive.
Traditions of holiday revels have been co-opted to push an environmentally-destructive consumerist agenda. How can we reclaim older holiday traditions, and create new ones like Climate Caroling, to heal our communities? What other actions can add meaning and build community with our holiday celebrations?
As evidence of climate destabilization increases, more people are experiencing climate anxiety, ecogrief, and similar distress. How common is climate anxiety? How do we deal with the emotions that arise from this escalating climate emergency? Novasutras practices and events serve to nurture and uplift one another during these challenging times.
Climate conversations are a good place to start growing your climate justice activism. You can join online trainings in supportive community to have more effective climate conversations. Trainings from THIS! Is What We Did will show how to avoid pitfalls, promote understanding, and “listen deeply” to people of all views on climate change.
Climate Caroling is a festive form of activism. Singing alternate lyrics and other actions can add meaning and message to holiday celebrations. Novasutras Solstice events and other holiday practices show our reverence for life on Earth, and our interdependence with all beings.
Novasutras participates in the gift economy, freely offering events and content. You can join this gift economy by sharing money or time with us. Help us thrive by telling your friends about Novasutras and our events – reach out and have a good conversation with someone you love, to reconnect and share agaya and ubuntu.
