    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How does your eating experience differ when practicing mindfulness?

  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Accelerating Solutions Support Indigenous Peoples' Land Management
    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    LIVING THINGS STRIVE FOR BALANCE.  MODERN LIFE HAS PUSHED US SO FAR OFF BALANCE THAT ANY MEANS TO INCH TOWARDS THIS STATE IS A SMALL STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
