“We go down deeper into our rootedness, before there were religions, before there were sacred texts. That’s why there is a silent movement…for a different way of being, for a different paradigm, for a different world view…We are extending our lens, our historical lens from 500 years of modernity to maybe 10,000…hundreds of thousands of years of how we have lived on the planet, how we changed its landscape and created the problems we have now.

There is something wise about lengthening our historical perspective and listening to the voices of our ancient traditions that basically shows us where we have gone wrong and how we can return.”
