The Planet Earth is a gift to each and every one of us. This is an environmental education web site with plenty of pictures of and posts about the planet earth. sacred dance, ceremonial expression, song, and prayer, sweat lodges, environmental action, environmental education, expressions of concern about species extinctions, earthdance ceremonies, synchronous events, and even pollution reports. These are all part of the Earthkeeper’s life and work.
The power of ideas and the power of spiritual involvement with the natural environment move the heart. Earthkeepers can influence the people by helping them to reconnect with the beauty of the Planet Earth. We certainly encourage environmental activism for preservation of our wildlands and conservation of our resources.
But to touch the heart, we cannot assault the mind. Each of us comes to our relationship with the Earth in our own way and time. Our hope is that through education and ceremony, we, as Earthkeepers, can keep the door open for those who have yet to find that relationship. We do this by presenting different ways of relating to the Earth and different ways of thinking about our future. We also present information about how our current ideas and ways we relate to the Planet Earth will affect our children and grandchildren.
There are many with the knowledge of Earthkeepers, but there are few with the hearts of Earthkeepers. This is not a right way to pray. It is a responsibility. Each of us comes to our relationship with the Earth in his or her own way and time. The Earthkeeper’s way involves us in the experiences of the Earth’s spiritual presence. It is a spiritual practice, not a religion. Earthkeeper ceremonial practice is not just a sweat lodge or a drumming circle or a talking circle or a web of life council, or a medicine wheel ceremony or a pipe ceremony. It is a way of life. The power to change always lies in the present. Drumming, singing, dance all help to strip away the dark smoke of our illusion… it is the illusion of being in the past or future.
