Mission and Values
All systems are impermanent; we can reimagine systems and live into other ways of knowing and being.
There is an urgent need for just and transformative cultural change.
The loss of biological diversity and the degradation of soil, water, and air quality are fundamental spiritual, ecological, economic, and social losses. Extinction is a bottom line event that we should not knowingly cause.
Human beings are capable of the imagination and empathy that the work of healing and reconnection requires.
Rights are not reserved only for human beings, and human rights are responsibilities—to all people, generations, species, ecological systems, and natural processes.
Insights from contemporary evolutionary science and traditional ecological knowledge allow us to overcome a fragmented vision of reality. They help us understand kinship, community, relationship, and interconnectedness.
