Seeds in various stages of germination

Seeds are tiny, magical packets of latent energy and potential, ready to burst forth when conditions are right. They contain the very essence of Life itself: ancient wisdoms and future hopes, exquisitely designed to adapt and evolve as needs arise. Part of Earthfire’s mission is to be a seed center. Here we gather selections of what we would like to see to germinate, take root, and unfurl into the light; stories that educate, inspire, inform and embrace hope and action. We invite you to partake, swap and share them. May they all bear fruit. Looking for actionable steps you can take to curb climate change? Here are 101 ideas to try. And here's idea #102: Don't feed the climate...

Teton mountains covered in snow

— by Susan Eirich, Ph.D. — I usually write about the animals here, sometimes about the trees. But the land itself has a voice that needs to be heard. It is the living ground that supports us and all living beings. The land also needs to be seen and loved. The part of the earth Earthfire calls home spoke to us as soon as we saw it. There was something about it, hard to express… It felt like a strength of being. Was it the vivid awareness of the bedrock upon which we stood, the solid ground beneath our feet? Or energy welling up from the center of our Earth to its surface, up through the bottoms of our soles, entering and enlivening our own energy systems? Over time, we came to feel...

Young woman drinking coffee on a terrace overlooking an Italian city

We are in great need of enlightened leaders to guide us, inspire us, and pull us together during this difficult time---to keep our eyes on what is important rather than waste critical energy on fighting among ourselves as the Earth warms and human and animal needs go unmet. Where do we get these leaders? How do we train them? Last year, Dr. Pier Luigi Luisi, a brilliant scientist, founded an annual week-long retreat conference called Cortona Week to try to address these questions. Each year, 120 renowned, cutting-edge scientists, thinkers, artists, musicians, spiritual leaders, physicians, and visionaries gather with young emerging world leaders. Invited speakers are people deeply rooted...
