The wisdom from the ocean depths of mind
surfaces to heal our oceans, land and people.
How might we live a lifestyle that’s healthy sustainable, into our very rocky future?
Our work is to help us create a regenerative culture, both within us and around us. the two go hand in hand.
We are totally interconnected with Nature, and each other. Here we explore
how to cooperate with nature, and model our communities on Mother Nature’s ecosystems. Mother Nature operates on mothering values. This paradigm is called partnership, as opposed to the dominator model we have now. Patriarchy, capitalism and neoliberalism are destroying our planet.
Everything is part of the pattern.
Our work connects things that are often not connected in people’s minds. For example, Climate emergency and Culture shift are not usually associated with meditation. We explore this project in a range of areas, woven together. Each area brings out different aspects of the life-affirming culture we are building. They are all related to each other, parts of one pattern.
Inner – outer
When we nurture our inner life and resources, they support our work to create an outer environment that can restore the earth and sustain us into the future.
Internal regeneration – Regenerative culture
Ocean depths of wisdom – ocean that helps us breathe
Culture shift – Climate emergency
Buddhist wisdom – meditation practice
Great Mother – Mother Nature
Ecofeminism – Indigenous wisdom – Matriarchy
How can we embody in our own experience this way to live?
To make it work, we must transform the way we live, both in what we do and in our hearts and minds. Inner work is an essential part of building a regenerative community, to meet the challenges of our times, especially the Climate Emergency.
One of the main methods we use is meditation. Our work is based on Tibetan Buddhism. Its many dimensions can be useful in our transformation, both inner and outer.
Our true nature is the same as all Nature. Huge, wild, beautiful.
Our nature is to dance full-hearted in the vastness of sky-like mind, in which all things live.
We can awaken to the primordial wisdom within us, in every moment of our life.
