Transformative Experiences in Nature: A Path to a Livable Planet
- Susan B. Eirich
Many of us have had profound moments of connection with a nonhuman being. Earthfire’s work supports the importance of those experiences, helping us trust them; integrating them into our professional and personal lives, and moving us to take action on behalf of Life.
Scientific objectivity is invaluable but used alone it can disconnect us from our native wisdom and passion. We need both in order to have a more complete understanding of how natural systems work. A one-sided view in either direction creates distortion. Without connection, through which flows information that is elemental, primal – a visceral knowing – we make short-sighted environmental and technological decisions rather than decisions that enhance the long term vitality of our Earth. We also miss the invitation to join with the joyous essence of this resonant web of Life in which we are embedded.
We invite you to share your profound or unexplainable experiences in nature, or simply listen as we support one another in validating these life-changing encounters. It’s through sharing our stories that they exert their inherent power, reaching the deepest levels of our human psyche where real change occurs. These experiences can be found anywhere, anytime, with any non-human being, in any setting.
