To find kinship in plants, rocks, clouds, bugs,
trees, animals and humans
To experience the freedom of not needing what
we thought we needed
To rediscover the Elemental Maker within us all
To find deep joy in the responsibility of tending and
completing energy cycles
To tap into the vitality that comes from working
with our hands to create and support life
To redefine success as energy spent on
connection, understanding and love
To live each day in a way that supports the
possibility of social and ecological justice as a
potential future
To begin healing the centuries of hurt and
missunderstanding between the human community and the
rest of the earth community
To come to understand the world as a gift
