earthplay

  • We are air. Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh!
  • We are water. Slosh around.
  • We are fire. Give your nerves a flashing shake.
  • We are earth. Notice gravity pulling you into the bosom of the earth.

This weekend in Oakland EarthPlayers will become an earth village, eating sustainably, moving in rhythm with the day and uniting with beauty of our natural home. InterPlay will support us as embodied and playful Earth!

Sustainability results from noticing and following the natural world, a transformative, high form of spiritual practice. An old InterPlay friend, Mark Liebenow, beautifully recounts this in his relationship to Yosemite.

What do you want more of in your own EarthPlay? What would make it easier to have on a regular basis?

A Practice: First Fall IN LOVE with where you are earthed! Try this EarthPlay practice! You too can “Be a Tree!”

Check the Be A Tree Facebook Page and add your tree to the forest!

Oakland InterPlay will honor the earth on behalf of you. We will Plant Ourselves in Love, Play with Each Other, Share our Earth practices, Eat, “Pway”, Sing, Dance, and Create Ritual.  Perhaps best of all, we will REST and hang out together creating more permission to use less and love more as we connect with the deep wisdom of h-earth and h-om-e!

 People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.
