The depth psychology of C. G. Jung provides a set of concepts for exploring the spiritual aspect of nature. According to this view, spiritual experiences occur when basic patterns or archetypes within the psyche are projected onto natural environments. Implications of this viewpoint for natural resource management and research are discussed.

We have erected a monument to commemorate the funeral of a species. It symbolizes our sorrow. We grieve because no living man will see again the onrushing phalanx of victorious birds, sweeping a path for spring across the March skies, chasing the defeated winter from all the woods and prairies of Wisconsin.

Men still live who, in their youth, remember pigeons. Trees still live who, in their youth, were shaken by a living wind. But a decade hence only the oldest oaks will remember, and at long last only the hills will know.

The Placebo Magick Podcast explores imaginative self-care and spiritual practice for skeptics. Remember: Magick is a metaphor, and metaphor is magickal!

Matt Christman of Chapo Traphouse, Time for my Stories, and Cush Vlogs, talks to us about discovering spirituality within the Black Iron Prison of this world, art and politics, reclaiming what it means to be human, the courage to be authentic, how we are currently living in Gnostic times, religion for the 21st Century, transcendence, and so much more.

This is part of our ongoing bonus "Black Iron Prison" series where we speak to thinkers outside of the Gnostic world about Gnostic themes in their work and in art, society, and in the world.

The Grandmothers Wisdom Project is inspired by thirteen elder women known as the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. We are committed to supporting all people reclaiming their relationship to Mother Earth, calling for a profound transformation in the heart, mind, and spirit.

The Grandmothers Wisdom Project is an Earth-based community actively building a bridge to support the living legacy of ancient traditions that gives us deeper insight into the mystery of life and the importance of honoring the connection that exists among all beings, nature and the cosmos.

We are a collective of women devoted to the restoration and continuation of the feminine spirit regarding peace, justice, human rights, indigenous rights, environmental protection, and the health and welfare of children and the elderly, for today and the generations to come.

A tune for Samhain.

“Today, far from Druidry seeming like some arcane fringe activity, its preoccupations are now centre-stage. They address the most urgent and important issue of our time: how we galvanize all of our potential – practical, creative, intellectual, and spiritual – to protect and restore the Earth.

They address directly the gaze of Greta Thunberg and her generation – our children and grand-children – to say: we are committed to our love of Nature to the fullest extent, with all of our being – all looking towards the same horizon: a world in which every human being has enough to lead a happy, healthy and fulfilling life without suffering injustice, without terrible inequalities between rich and poor, without the destruction of habitats and species, without the pollution of our skies and seas.” Philip Carr-Gomm

Druidry appeals in particular to people who have become disenchanted with much of conventional religious practice, and who are seeking a sense of spiritual connection with the land, and with their ancestors. In today’s fast-moving and environmentally-threatened world, they are looking for a sense of rootedness in Time and in Place, and for a sense of reverence for the Earth."
