go outside & touch grass
The Earth isn't mad at you.
In fact, She is patiently waiting for you to finally reconnect with Her.
It seems that the narrative of our era is that humans are the problem. And it's an easy conclusion to draw. We, in our belligerent genius, have landed our Earth in a precarious situation.
But who is "we?"
Humans lived harmoniously with the Earth for hundreds of thousands of years, but as history shows: the agricultural revolution inadvertently ripped us from something, and has led to the many ills of Western Civilization. So, it's not that humans are the problem. A Western, objectifying & mechanistic approach to the Earth has been the problem. And the question remains: Where do we go from here?
We reenchant our view of the Earth
Earth-based spirituality has always been the "religion" of Common People. In fact, Western organized religion was historically a bureaucratic, manual-ridden high tower that was in many ways inaccessible to the low literacy, under educated, & working class people who made up most of society. Most of the population relied instead upon the book of Nature, and intuitively knew how to commune with land spirits & regional deities. The "religion" of Common People was centered around living in harmony with the cycles of the Earth. This "religion" is the birthright of every human being, and in most cultures outside of the West this awareness remains in-tact.
The natural role of a human being is
to Steward the Earth.
This role has simply been forgotten. But it can easily be remembered. Our goal with this course is to help those of us who feel disconnected to de-mystify & de-gatekeep the "religion" of Common People, with the ulitmate goal of reenchanting the earth.
It is our firm belief that trees, pastures, and moss-covered boulders are desperate for us to reconnect with them. They aren't mad at you. They're waiting, patiently & lovingly, to feel your warm hands upon them once again.
