The Core Assumptions of WTR

  1. Our Earth is Alive. It is our body.
  2. Our true nature is far more ancient and encompassing than the separate self designed by habit and Western Society.
  3. The Planet as a living system can know and see itself through us, behold its own majesty, tell its own stories and also respond to its own suffering.
  4. Our experience of moral pain for our world springs from our interconnectedness with all beings – including beings of all human cultures – from which also arise our powers to act on their behalf.
  5. Unblocking occurs when our pain for the world is not only intellectually validated, but also experienced and expressed.
  6. When we reconnect with life, by willingly enduring our pain for it, the mind retrieves it natural clarity.
  7. The experience of reconnection with the Earth community, human and other-than-human, arouses desire to act on its behalf.
