Eco-affinity

Uniting interfaith, indigenous and embodied approaches to healing ourselves and the planet

with Knellee Bisram, Piero Falci, Dr. Crystal Cavalier-Keck, Beth Blissman and Arti Ahluwalia

We are Mother Earth and Mother Earth is us. When we are disconnected from this relationship and out of balance with Nature, we tend to turn to polarized, fear-based, anxiety-driven action causing intentional and unintentional harm to ourselves, each other and our planet. This session features AHAM Education’s documentary short Healing People Heal the Planet and a mindful reflection of how we might access “eco-affinity” through faith, indigenous wisdom, or other embodied practices. Together we explore how this compassionate ‘inter-being’ in relationship to humanity and the planet can serve as a catalyst for sustainable, nature-positive, nonviolent and transformative outcomes for a common future.
