Backstage at the White House
Art of the Earth is a much needed, hands-on guide for reunion with the natural world through the practice of humanity's ancient and enduring art forms. To help us respond to the alienation, apathy, and despair so prevelant in our culture, Art of the Earth returns to the original creativity of humankind. Through guided art meditations, we tell stories, knead clay, chant, make mosaics, masks, and sacred vessels, sing, and drum. Through practicing art forms which evolved through close human-Earth relationships, we rediscover, at the roots of creativity, our ancient, enduring, though tragically forgotten, partnership with Earth. Art of the Earth synthesizes communally shared art activities with universal concepts grounded in diverse spiritual tradtions and new insights from such fields as ecology, eco-psychology, creation spirituality, and art therapy. Ultimately, Art of the Earth is a journey of initiation into living in deep relationship with the Earth. Through the Art of the Earth journey, we become creative participants in the immense social tranformation needed to address the global ecological crisis of our time.
