Compassion for Mother is Compassion for Self

Connection to our natural world is the highest form of compassion. When we care for our planet we are more connected to community and aware of our choices as consumers. By honoring our water, soil and food and all that is gifted by Mother Earth, we are honoring those we share the planet with and creating more balance and harmony in our lives. Reconnecting people to the biodiversity under our feet strengthens the energy and compassion within one’s self. This, in turn, allows one to share more compassion daily with those in our beloved communities through simple acts of healthy food and clean water, the ultimate form of love.
