I woke up this morning thinking about the connection between our external and internal environments…and I realized that I simply must share these videos with you…
The first video in this post is one of my all time favorite moments captured on video….According to Wikipedia, the young woman featured in the video: “Severn Cullis-Suzuki (born 30 November 1979 in Vancouver, Canada) is a Canadian environmental activist, speaker, television host and author. She has spoken around the world about environmental issues, urging listeners to define their values, act with the future in mind, and take individual responsibility.” Severn is also David Suzuki‘s daughter. She is known as “The girl who silenced the world for five minutes.” I realize that there is nothing sexy about the environmental challenges we are facing….however, as a Permaculture Designer and an environmentally conscientious woman, I felt the need to share Severn’s message with all of you. She inspires me.
The second video I embedded in this post: The Tantra of Permaculture: Connecting Inner and Outer Landscapes is an incredible example of how we can be sexually empowered individuals who are in touch with our environment. This video also illustrates the incredible interconnectedness between our “inner and outer landscapes”. My message to you is best spoken in this quote by Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” I realize that the first video is 5 minutes long and the second is over 11 minutes…my gosh, we’re all busy…you likely don’t have a spare 16 minutes to watch these videos….but, if you have the time…please watch them…you may find that you walk away with a renewed faith in human kind. By empowering ourselves as sexual beings and focusing on the connections between ourselves and our environment, together, we can change the world!
