in the midst of a world gone mad we’re unpacking the meaning of life and our place in it.

what’s real? what matters? and how can we harness all that positive energy to create a more sustainable place for all of us?

Through resilience, creativity, and cooperation, humans have survived and thrived for over 200,000 years.

Then, in 1771, a production factory opened in Derbyshire, England. People went to work in this factory and bought the things it produced. Barely 250 years later these efforts had morphed into a giant, global economy.  But this remarkable event came at a price: The wealthiest 1% now own 50% of everything. Our food is covered in chemicals. Our oceans are full of plastic. And our humanity, and quite possibly the very survival of the human race, is under threat.

Just over 15 years ago we embarked on a voyage – in search of something beyond a life spent contributing to a capitalist system we no longer believed in.  LiLA is the ongoing result of this journey – our efforts to reconnect to what it means to be human and reclaim what mattered to us as global citizens . Really cool stuff happens when we live in harmony with our selves, each other, and the planet. Everyone has a a part to play in this new earth rising. This is ours:

 

 
global citizens. ecological enterprise. new earth.

life’s a trip
make yours the way you want it
dive into the web of life
and find your part in it
grab your roots, your good human skills, & your wildest moments
embrace your nature and what makes you you
connect to the energy that is all around us
and use all this power to build what you love
in your life and the world

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
Henry David Thoreau 1817-1862 (American essayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, and naturalist)
