"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." John Burroughs
...co-creating sustainable moments with Nature as part of Nature...
The term 'sustainability' emerged in the 1970's as a key concept for environmental and social planning processes then in the 80's the United Nations 'World Commission on Environment and Development' (WCED) published a report defining sustainable development as "development that meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs" (WCED 1987)
Deb desires to broaden and challenge this concept from an anthropocentric viewpoint to one which considers all life, without humans being the noted sole superior species. She looks at the eco-systems, cycles and rhythms supporting all life; within ourselves and within our environment.
Deb works with groups and individuals to co-create a sustainable future meeting nature, non-human and human needs with a grounded, sacred approach.
Individuals and communities who sense themselves as eco-conscious rather than self-conscious know they are part of the interdependent web-of-life and feel an ethical authenticity to take sustainable actions towards a thriving future for all. Within our current state of planetary crisis, this requires a unified, respectful, deep adaptation response.
"Not one entity can survive, let alone thrive, without the biodiversity each other offers.
We are the Ecosystem"
