The Waking Up to Stewardship for a New Earth: Birthing an Ancient Future – Homo Spiritualis on Earth – The Temple of the Peoples

The overarching theme of the Stewardship for a New Earth is rooted in the concept of interconnectedness, assuming everything is interconnected and impacts each other at a crossroads where ancient wisdom and modern science meet by synthesizing multidisciplinary perspectives, including but not limited to transgenerational, transcultural, indigenous, spiritual, deep ecology, collective-community-based, creative-intimate approaches, art, dance, and music, with modern psychedelic science and psychedelic-assisted therapy. We are in a global birthing process of Birthing an Ancient Future to create a new harmony on Earth by caring with loving kindness for all relations, including animals, plants, Nature, and rocks, for creating a new balance, not exploiting resources, and not exceeding needs.
In Native Indian traditions, the Grandmother Spider symbolizes weaving the web of life and caring for humans as the children of the Earth. This caring is anchored within us – the caring for all life and Nature – the inner temple representing the sacredness of our life and body and the Earth Body. The outer temple can mirror and help us remember ancient knowledge and weave it into our present experiences and future evolution, including shadow aspects and bypasses. Similarly, the impact of psychedelics can be described as mirroring our inner and outer cosmos, which can help us remember and integrate the mysteries of life. Together we evoke processes of awakening the divine inside and outside of us, where Nature, art and science, technology, and spirituality are united in the search for new evolutionary pathways for humanity – a new renaissance – a new Eleusis.
Humanity collectively and globally is called forth to braid a new way of collective conscious living in peace and harmony, collaboration, happiness, and beauty with all and Nature in reciprocity as Earth Stewardship through peaceful, compassionate, courageous activism towards homo spiritualis ⎯the Temple of the Peoples.
