I am taking a trip to visit people and communities as a learning experience and an opportunity for connecting with others. I will be travelling through the western side of the US, likely leaving the beginning of October.
I'm interested in finding those who share the worldview that the world is a sacred place and humans are a part of it. Humans belong in this sacred place because we are also sacred, not more sacred than anything else, but merely as sacred as the soil or crickets or bears or streams or mosquitos.
Of course our current culture does not share this value… Our one culture overran neighboring cultures because it was built on the belief that the world was made for man, and it is man's destiny to conquer the world. It overran other cultures because of the myth that our culture's way is the one right way to live. So I'm wondering, how are you challenging our culture's myths? There is no one right way to live, and I'm curious about all the different ways that people have found to live in accordance with the worldview of what I've described above. I'd love to come and talk with you about it and see what we can learn from each other.
My own journey may be very different from yours, and that is the beauty of there being no one right way to live. To help with my own journey, I would be very pleased to find people who are experienced in earth skills or 'primitive' skills, who are living tribally, or who are living in the cracks of the cage that our culture holds us in.
If you are open to a visit, I would be very happy to include you as a destination on my journey. I do not intend to be a burden to anyone. I will come bearing gifts, will carry my own weight when visiting, and have the intention of a reciprocal and mutually beneficial experience wherever I go (human and non-human).
