Ganga Devi Braun, a regenerative counselor, wrote an interesting article about how to begin living in a Regenerative Culture Today. Read bellow the main idea of the article.
What are some things that you can put in motion this week to help transition humanity into a regenerative culture?
Educate yourself about today’s earth based indigenous & black leadership.
Listen to these voices. Open yourself to uncomfortable truths. Ally yourself with them. Consider all of your resources, and how you might be able to support these movements.
Commit to making changes to the way you eat.
Find your local farms, ideally based in regenerative, permaculture, and/or biodynamic practices. If they have a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, enroll! You’ll help them in a really tangible way, and you will receive regular, seasonal, delicious produce.
Assess and reduce your use of fuel.
Consider flying less, driving less, and using less electricity in your daily life. We in the global north are driving the global catastrophes of extractive capitalism. If you can fly less, drive less, and use less electricity this year and inspire others to do the same, you will be helping to reduce extraction in invisible but significant ways.
Leverage & unhoard your resources.
If you have any more money than you really need right now, there is a lot you can do to support justice and regeneration.
Be discerning and research well. Send some of it to the people who are protecting and regenerating the most important ecosystems on earth. Consider it insurance if you like. It is necessary that we unhoard and decolonize planetary resources as effectively as possible. (Huni Kuin Fire Response is one fund that has come highly recommended at this urgent time.)
Befriend death, chaos, and entropy.
These are realities of existence in the phenomenal world that western culture tries desperately to hide from our consciousness. We don’t know how to talk about these elements of reality without profound discomfort, bypassing, or nihilism. Find practices (like composting or volunteering at hospice) that can help you wrap your mind around these life giving processes. This is an element of regenerative living that I feel is absolutely vital for humanity’s transition. This is why I’ve begun hosting digital salons which are safe, grounded, community based gatherings where we can bring death and chaos into our consciousness. Please feel welcome to join me!
Turn to community.
Find people you can turn to for vulnerable, intimate connection around these topics, and everything that they bring up in you. Here is a facebook group that will serve you. And this is also why I’ve been hosting digital salons to create space for this kind of deep connection.
Think critically, love deeply.
We all have choices around how we use our minds and hearts. Some of us hide in judgement and blame, some of us hide in love and light. I propose that we find the middle way. We look closely at data, we listen carefully to people’s stories, and we commit to loving everyone and every thing in this world completely and unconditionally.
