Exploring ecological self is part of the transforming process
required to heal ourselves in the world.
Practicing means breathing the air with renewed awareness of the winds.
When we drink water we trace it to its sources:
• a spring or mountain stream in our bioregion
• and contemplate the cycles of energy as part of our body.
The “living waters” and “living mountains” enter our body.
We are part of the evolutionary journey and contain within our bodies
connections with our Pleistocene ancestors.
~ Bill Devall
If you resonate with these words, if you recognize the deep truth of this experience, NOW is the time to step up and support the people who are championing deep environmental healing and protective stewardship for us.
It’s the final day of the NC Conservation Network’s Annual Fundraising Auction.
The North Carolina Conservation Network is a statewide network of over 100 environmental, community and environmental justice organizations focused on protecting North Carolina’s environment and public health. They are THE line of defense between us and the corporate interests that would gladly gut our natural resources for profit.
NCCN is one of our most important environmental watchdogs. They are leading the way in protecting our state from the massive exploitation that threatens our unique and fragile ecosystems.
- They are the ones pushing back against the huge interests that fund the pipeline that is threatening to snake through our state.
- They are challenging the big money coal power plants that flaunt the EPA’s clean air standards.
- They are fighting to stop the greedy logging practices, and the destruction of our wilderness areas in the mountains.
- They are the watchdogs fighting the huge energy corporations planning to drill on our beautiful coastlines and that have poisoned our rivers with coal ash.
- And there is almost no one else standing between us and the powerful fracking interests already divvying up our lovely rolling hills.
To stand up to these giant corporations with their infinitely deep pockets, and the muscle of the politicians they own, NCCN needs YOU.
