Ecology of Awakening emerged in response to a personal journey as well as the collective moment we are in as a planet. In truth they are one in the same. The seed for the journey was planted almost 20 years ago when I was guiding wilderness vision fasts and other nature based programs. Over and over I saw the clarity and sense of 'homecoming' people experienced on those programs; yet I also saw how difficult it was for people to maintain any sense of lasting transformation. In response to my own leading edge questions around what would support a new way of being in the world, beyond peak experiences that often faded away, I stopped guiding for many years to allow the questions to gestate.  [more]

We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human.
— Charles Eisenstein
