Modern culture separates us from nature in a wide variety of ways. Among other things, we are insulated from shifting seasons by air conditioning that keeps us comfortable year-round and by modern grocery stores that allow us to purchase any produce we desire during any season. Electric lighting makes it possible to almost forget when the days get shorter. We live in a sort of perpetual artificial summer. The goal of this morning is to root participants more fully into the land of the Earth and Spirit Center.
Stories are important and can change people. We are now learning the New Earth story is emerging. We now know that we are one with the Earth and come from the Earth rather than masters of the Earth. Our troubled world is changing, dying and is in labor. The new world is being birthed. We as Elders are called to be doulas or midwives. As with the birthing process we need to be mindful, to breathe, and have the vision for what is coming forth. As Elders we can be witnesses of hope to this vital process.
