"When one tugs at a single thing in Nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world." - John Muir
The world is changing in ways that seem to overwhelm us in their magnitude. Our daily lives are busy & stressful. Overwhelming noise about the many perils facing our planet bombards us from all forms of media, creating deep concern for our world.
For me, the stress & noise created an anguish inside me I couldn't define. I felt restless & anxious, sad & angry, almost grief-stricken for the natural world. I felt powerless.
I discovered many of my friends were feeling the same way. We are also profoundly fearful for our planet after the recent elections.
We yearn to feel calmer, more joyful, less anxious – like when we were kids and played outside, splashing in mud puddles, climbing trees, playing in the grass, our spirits connected to our natural world. We wonder how we can mitigate the stress & fear.
We wonder how anyone can have hope in the face of the many challenges facing our world and the habitats & systems that sustain our species as well as the myriad life forms with whom we share this blue & green sphere.
Even though I spend a lot of time “in Nature,” I feel the need to take a journey to find that place where I can reconnect my human spirit to that natural world.
I need to find the optimism that the future of our world is OK.
It's going to be an interesting, insightful, journey that may take a while!
Join me on that journey to discover joyful things about the planet. We’ll share adventures on land & at sea, and reflect on how we, as human beings, are deeply intertwined with and part of Nature and how we need that connection for the very health of our human spirits.
We'll meet WildEarth Stewards who share their optimistic & uplifting stories as they strive to create a positive influence on the world, often in the face of great odds and in their own perhaps small ways. They will show us how even a small action can generate a hopeful & positive force.
Let's reconnect to our WildEarth and find some peace. Let's spark hope. Let’s discover how we can reconnect our human spirits to our natural world.
Let's make it EPIC by Exploring * Protecting * Inspiring * Connecting
People are connected to and impacted by the natural environment. Our busy, crazy lives help disconnect us and create discord, but we can find ways to reconnect. Come see & hear how others reconnected their spirits to our WildEarth.
I believe people are connected to and impacted by the natural environment. We are part of the web of life on this remarkable planet. Watching beautiful scenes of Nature can help reconnect our spirits to our WildEarth.
