Part one: What are we looking forward to”
I look forward to the world breaking up “into small colonies of the saved” (Robert Bly). I look forward to a simpler, less neurotic life for me and my children. I would like to think that my children, while their chances of survival may be lower, their chances of happiness will be higher.
The central change I would like to see is abandonment of the addictive, frenzied, exploitative American way of life in favor of a tribal, cooperative, relaxed way of life that puts responsibility toward other species and the Earth, as well as other human beings, first.
The main outcome I look forward to is the resurgence of a pristine, detoxified ecology worldwide, into which we blend human culture seamlessly, losing nothing already learned, and finding a new, huge, informing mutual Love, leading to the next golden age.
Learning how to live with each other and within the larger community of our bioregions and ecosystems in a way that is intimate, honest, humble, and humanly and ecologically sustainable. That includes restoring viable community life, economic and ecological relationships and systems – living systems.
I have personally experienced a watsu session, and I can vouch for the incredible physical and emotional benefits. I can honestly say it was the most relaxing bodywork I ever experienced. Most incredibly, it brought me back to sensations of total safety and freedom. One of the most healing experiences of my life.
