Land Consciousness

In this episode

We’re exploring land consciousness: seeing all parts of the earth as sacred and conscious.

Taking our place as reverent custodians and protectors of the lands upon which we live.

When I talk about ‘Land Consciousness’ – I’m talking about all parts of the land, stones, plants, trees, rivers, flowers etc – but also its ancestors: its keepers, its custodians, its traditions, its intelligence, its memories, its spiritual essence. It’s about seeing the alive-ness of the earth and land around us.

I’m going to be sharing with you a personal story of how a discovery at my front door brought me to my knees as I realised how profoundly the land we live on provides for us, if we just open our eyes to truly see it. This moment changed so much for me and how I navigate my way through this life, no matter what land I’m on.

“Land consciousness is the belief that all land holds memory and experiences, that the land is a living thing.

— Rebecca Campbell, Episode 10
