It took me about five years of working in the field of environmental management to really get my head around what impacts we have on nature from our everyday actions.
Do you ever get a guilty feeling when you go shopping? Not the one where you have spent the last of your money set aside for bills on the raddest shoes that you have ever seen (but will likely never wear because of their out-there colour which won’t go with anything you own, and their complete lack of comfort).
I have been surrounded by people who care much less about nature than I do for most of my life, so I’m mindful that many people may not as drawn to earth healing as I am. In the corporate world, I am often criticised for being a ‘tree hugger’, ‘hippie’ or ‘greenie’. On the social front, many of my friends won’t go anywhere near the great outdoors, instead opting for fashion outlets and city engagements. But earth healing really has something for everyone, whether they are interested in healing and the environment, or not.
