Rooting the Divine on Earth

Rooting the Divine on Earth is the story of a trip to Roots Gathering, an event at the permaculture farm called Punta Mona on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast. The gathering was filled with conscious and intentional pioneers, builders of the New Earth.

We need spirituality in order to make lasting change to the trajectory of the human collective. Here's what that means to me.

In this way, communities begin to view themselves as holding the answers to their own problems rather than looking externally for professional help. We focus on building capacity to develop resiliency within indigenous villages, neighborhoods, and cities. Click the image to continue reading.
