….is “dreaming” in these senses:

  • Exploring how our night dreams reflect living presences all around us;
  • Reenchanting our relations with ourselves, each other, and the world;
  • Playing with the idea of the things around us “dreaming” with us;
  • Imagining together to dream up a just and Earth-honoring future;
  • Turning these dreams into realities we can all delight to live in.

the big picture:

really living HERE

 


Wealth, laws, and technology by themselves cannot bring about a new way of being here on Earth with each other. For that we need new stories and skills for coming home to our sentient and still-beautiful homeworld.

 

“Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself?”
