There is a language older and far deeper than words. It is the language of the earth and it is the language of bodies. It is the language of dreams, and of actions. It is the language of meaning, and of metaphor. (Derrick Jensen – A Language Older than Words).
This other language is the language of other species, of trees, rocks and wind. It is the dance of rain on earth, the song of the trees, the wind whispering its secrets, the pulsing waves drumming its rhythms on rock. It is the language of the very land itself.
By learning this other language we can participate in a new dream that is being born - the dream of the earth. This dream is where we encounter others and things, not as facts to be discovered, but as invitations to participate in the earth’s unfolding and realisation. We re-member (become members again) of the earth community – we become, once again, the dream of the earth.”
