Can We Take From Nature With Reverence?

In this episode


How can we get into right relationship with nature? 

This episode is in response to a beautiful Returner question submitted by Eric, but it actually created more questions within me: can we ever take from nature without leaving a negative impact? Does reverence and intention offset our environmental footprint? If we believe that we are part of nature, how do our choices and actions impact the wider seasons?  My hope is that by the end of this episode we all feel encouraged to re-evaluate our relationship with nature, as we explore new ways to honour the sacred in all things and make conscious choices that reflect the values we hold and future we believe in.

“We are nature, we are not separate from it – and whilst we see first hand the devastating impact humans have when we abuse our power, I believe we can equally do so much good when we weave the sacred back into nature, back into life. “
