“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation and we scientists don’t know how to do that.”
~James Gustave Speth, founder of World Resources Institute.
Well, our centers do! Cultural and spiritual transformation is what centers within HCN are all about. The door is open for us to channel Light, love and solutions to the 25th United Nations Climate Change conference in Madrid, Spain now through December 13.
Listening to the Earth (L2E) is calling upon everyone to listen and reconnect with Nature, and meditate and pray for people who are in the room for climate change negotiations.
L2E grew out of the Climate Change and Consciousness conference (CCC19) at Findhorn this last April 2019. (Charlotte Dufour and Vandana (Jacqueline Debets) of Ananda became friends there and launched L2E this summer.)
L2E is hosting live stream meditations—moments of mindfulness and Nature connection every morning, just before negotiations open. Participants in the UN Climate Change Conference (COP) are invited to begin their meetings with a silent moment of mindful connection to the Earth. L2E distributed cards with guidance to meeting leaders in Madrid.
Two simple ways you and your center can add transformative energy:
1. You can join in the meditation via live stream on L2E Facebook, or as part of your own
meditation time. Just see the COP25 surrounded by Light and send them your love to be
courageous and open to solutions from Spirit and the Earth.
2. You could invite your Center’s community to join in L2E the meditations through your
regular email blasts, and social media:
- Share http://listeningtotheearth.world/
- Facebook: @listening2theearth
- Instagram: @listening2theearth
- Twitter: @EarthListening
Visit Listening to the Earth for more ways to catalyze the transformation we all need. Let’s
move from shock, anger, despair to loving, compassionate action. The idea of L2E is also to increase the visibility of networks that spread light in the world and help people connect to each other…
