Much as we nurture relationships with people we love, we can nurture our relationship with Earth, and you will both benefit.

Especially in times of great uncertainty, when events like Hurricane Sandy happen, it is especially important to nurture and love Earth, and help her heal.

“Earth is already wounded. You can tend to her any time…. by encouraging her and being tender with her flowers, her trees, her grasses…. [You can] run your hands over the dirt as if they are her skin, which they are. Offer understanding, sympathy, and support.”

Despite her stresses, Earth’s capacity for renewal is enormous. Earth is still able to maintain areas of such beauty and balance… We are surrounded by her beauty and generosity.”
