A Forest Walk is more than a walk in nature; it's a sacred activism to rebuild a regenerative culture; the kind of culture Indigenous people knew; the kind of culture that perhaps our own ancestors knew. When nature becomes personal again, we will begin to heal ourselves and our relationship with nature. Then, our real work can begin. ~Linda Lombardo
This Dialogue with ecologist and artist, Dr. Rene Henery will explore pathways toward the simultaneous healing of systems in nature and of our own internal systems, hearts, minds, and spirits. In the process, Rene will share some of his experiences, as a scientist pivoting from an emphasis on the application of science and mind to “fix” the world to an emphasis on relationship and heart, to heal, to catalyze greater connection with others and alignment with nature, and to be guided by what emerges from that connected place.

David Haskell spent several years listening to the stories of trees in forests, cities, and coasts. At each, he explored the many interconnections that give us all life. These connections exist at levels, from cells, to ecology, to human culture. In the lives of trees, we see that living beings are made not from "selves" but from networked relationships. Trees therefore tells us both about the fascinating stories of particular places and about the processes that unite all of life on the planet.
Join O.N.E and Brooke Medicine Eagle as she shares about the wisdom of the Buffalo and the co-creative journey shared by the people, the land and the herd.
At our home ranch, we have a powerful spiritual and ecological practice, initiated by the buffalo themselves in the form of sacred hunts. It is a deep teaching about wholeness, holiness, Oneness, AND how practical and sensible it is to act in harmony with All Our Relations. And this is only one of the sacred teachings the herd has offered as we have watched them transform and revitalize the land and create new springs in their 20 years of returning here.
Joining Inner Cultivation with Hope & Sacred Action with Felicia Kainat Norton and Charles Muinuddin Smith, Ph.D
Given the scale and intensity of the issues we face, can an individual’s meditation and other pathways of cultivating fresh and creative perception really make a difference in our world? Join O.N.E., Felicia Kainat Norton and Charles Muinuddin Smith, Ph.D for a conversation about feeling into our sacred connection and how this can be a source for the transformation needed at this time.

We are delighted to be hosting Mary Reynolds – Reformed Landscape Designer and Nature Activist, as part of our Sacred Earth Activism teleseminar series.

Join O.N.E. Dr. Patrick MacManoway in learning more about how you can listen to and take care of Earth that is your backyard, your park, your garden-your nature community. There is a sentient intelligence in the spirit of place, in the spirits of the elements and of vibrant nature that we can interact with telepathically.
Patrick will share land whispering stories from 25 years of practice in three continents to inspire and invite you to what might be possible where you live.
The source of our activism is equally as important as the action itself. Although fear, anger, outrage etc. can certainly serve us at times, action initiating from our connection within nature is an effective and sustainable model for environmental change.
