Guy Dauncey, Findhorn Fellow and author of the novel, Journey to the Future: A Better World Is Possible, shares his felt sense of an EcoRenaissance he sees emerging right now on our beautiful planet – the birth of a new vision, the promise of a new future.
“….I feel this other future that is already happening today. I see it being lived out in the lives of people who have decided that they want to contribute something positive, who want their lives to be rich and purposeful, who are working to start organic farms, create ecovillages, protect creeks, form cooperatives, share tools and books, organize festivals, lend money for social impact, run for council, start a social enterprise, start a Nature school.
“So what do we call it, this other future we are creating? The non-catastrophic one? It feels like a Renaissance, and yet it is a rebirth of something buried deep within our ancestral memory, of a time when we lived far more cooperatively, when we gave without counting the cost, when we were supported in our time of need, when we remembered and respected our ancestors, and taught our children to understand the ways of the elders.
“So let us name what I feel is emerging, sprouting in souls, reaching towards the light. Let us name it EcoRenaissance – the rebirth of connection with Nature in all its threatened glory, and reconnection with community, our friend and neighbours who care about this beautiful planet, its incredible past, and its yet-to-be-realized future.”
