EcoSomatic Action is an education & social change project offering skills & strategies for living with passion, discipline and joy during this powerful time.
Our hearts break open daily as we witness and try to respond to what is happening in our world. Grief, rage, fear and helplessness have become familiar companions. Are we meant to feel this much? Certainly not alone. We find ourselves way out in an unknown place asking: How do we keep saying Yes to life? What do we love? What’s worth doing now? Together we lean into the creative work of reweaving human life into the ongoing story of the earth.
The last few years have exposed our belief in human control and supremacy as illusions, easily swept away by circumstance. This is actually very good news. The well of our old answers is going dry. As the pressure of the cultural moment intensifies, the stories we tell are shifting naturally from the personal to the collective, and new stories arise. The challenges we have and the changes we seek are systemic and personal. What will it take to wake up together at this opportune moment? What choices center us in life-giving possibilities for all beings?
EcoSomatic Action offers group practice in deep listening, careful speech, witness and transformation through the lineages of multi-generational trauma which forge our resilience and our limits. What will it take to create a life-giving culture that serves us all? Together we learn to live in place with others, center in our powerful embodied selves, extend our care beyond our immediate circle of relations and myceliate the future with a generative story of belonging. We uplift our sensing, feeling and acting together in service to a life-giving culture where everyone belongs.
