CIRCLE OF ANIMAL

Standing Witness for the Sentient Wild

 

 

We are estranged from nature, possessed by an ecological autism that interferes with our ability to connect, communicate, and empathize with the more-than-human-world.

 

We stand apart, a drifting coiled thread turned in on itself having lost connection to the fabric of our animate earth. Our powerful cleverness seduces us into believing we possess a certain specialness and destiny that secures our independence from the reciprocal nature of the our world. 

 

This illusory sense of separation allows us to deceive ourselves into believing we have the independent power and right to claim dominance and secure dominion to satisfy every hunger and can do so with impunity.
