Widening Circles - Rainer Maria Rilke
I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?
Sustainability of self, community and environment
The term 'sustainability' emerged in the 1970's as a key concept for environmental and social planning processes. In the 1980'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)
Anthropocentric (egocentric) to ecocentric
Deb desires to broaden and challenge this concept from an anthropocentric viewpoint to ecocentric which considers all life, without humans being the noted superior species. She looks at the systems, cycles and rhythms supporting all life; within ourselves, community and our environment. About Deb
Greensong aims to support and inspire individuals and groups by offering simple, enriching and empowering practices, experiences and strategies that can be easily integrated in regular daily life. The human species is the only species capable on our planet to use our whole body to take actions to make changes necessary to create a regenerative culture and attempt to mitigate the damage of the climate and ecological crisis.
Collaborations with other persons, organizations and projects are chosen for their integrity, ethics and commitment to equitable, long-term sustainability and a peaceful world.
