In so many ways, our connections are often broken.
We often lose touch with the wisdom of our own bodies and hearts, distracted and numbed by so many things. But connecting with inspiration, our inherent creativity, and a sense of passion in what makes us feel alive and whole is so important.
Through fractured relationships and problematic social systems we lose the support, encouragement and challenge that we all need. But genuinely connecting with each other, including (and especially) those who are different from us, re-humanises us. A sustainable future doesn't just involve our physical environment, but crucially depends on our relational and interpersonal environment.
Nevertheless, the sustainability of our Planet is an urgent concern. We often forget that we are part of the fabric of Nature, and often don't realise or understand the impact our actions have. On a purely individual level, re-connecting with Nature has been shown to greatly improve personal wellbeing, but developing a love and understanding for the natural world will also increase our desire to protect it. Investing in children and young people now is a way of Planting Seeds of the Future.
Our core aim is therefore to create an holistic 'space' for reconnection: physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. Whether strengthening families, hosting celebration and discussion, encouraging art, music, and creative expression, or building and facilitating community resilience, there is a great need for us all to re-connect.
