Twilight Meditation for World Environment Day
"Connecting People to Nature" is the theme nations throughout the world will explore in honor of World Environment Day 2017. Science has confirmed that our connection to Earth is ancient and many of the world’s wisdom traditions have taught that our connection to Earth is sacred. Much of our work in this post-industrial era is to cultivate a relationship with the Earth that is mutually enhancing and beneficial. How do we use our power as human beings to be good stewards of Earth and what responsibility do we carry uniquely as a species for the well-being of all Creation? This twilight meditation will explore our sacred connection to the Earth and our call to action for environmental justice through mixed media and meditation.
