As the ecological mesh that holds us, falls apart,
As the animals leave us,
As our hearts grow heavy with grief,
As the trance that has bound us to this world unravels,
This evening begins with a silent walking meditation to attune us a deeper receptivity to the living wood. We call on those others, the more-than-human, to support us in becoming midwives of the imaginal.
This day is for those:
- sickened by our complicity in the devastation perpetuated by our culture
- feeling the heartbreak and willing to embrace remorse
- seeking new stories to engender different ways of seeing
- willing to acknowledge the potency of the other-than-human
We will draw on the power of ritual, deep listening, re-storying to clear a space between, behind and beyond us where both remorse for losses and what is calling us can be constellated. Acknowledging the destructive and creative history of our species and attuning to what the other-than-human ‘say’ to us, we look to a reparative engagement with new stories; stories that can bring solace to our wounded hearts and seeds for reparation.
