Presenter: Dr. Larry Ward, The Lotus Institute
In this webinar on mindfulness, Dr. Larry Ward of The Lotus Institute will introduce and talk about the Earth Holder archetype and share resources for practices that will sustain you for the long-haul. An Earth Holder preserves and protects the earth, as well as the energy that holds all of us together as one organism. Earth Holders are now called to deepen communication between human beings and other species and protect the earth and the environment. As we understand our role as an Earth Holder and our importance for the future, we can also learn to sustain and grow ourselves through new “eco-spirituality” practices and actions.
