What is Earth asking of us? What is Earth’s dream?
Earth Day is an annual event dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues and promoting sustainability efforts worldwide.
We invite you, in acknowledgment of Earth Day this past weekend, to spend some time attuning to Earth. Touch her soil, smell her flowers, feel her breezes. Open to the present moment with Earth. Tap into Earth’s Desire. After this experience of attunement, we encourage you to create an Earth Dream Counsel. An Earth Dream Counsel is collecting different leaves, flowers, dirt, rocks, and sticks and placing them in a small space on the ground that calls to you. In this space, each object can represent figures from your personal dream counsel or life. Please share an image of your Earth Dream Counsel on Dream Tending’s Facebook page here.
In community, we can then see each other’s Earth Dream Counsels, share our experiences, and act as archetypal environmental activists on behalf of Earth’s desire.
