Earth Spirit - Gaia
When we save Gaia, we save ourselves.
Learning about Gaia is learning about ourselves and our relationships with each other. From the stories and myth to modern exploration and activism, we can move from a tenuous relationship to one that is reciprocal and necessary in the increasing proof of climate change. When we save Gaia, we save ourselves.

The Earth is our home. When we live in relationship with her, we bring not only physical balance into our lives, but spiritual balance as well. In her latest book, Earth Spirit-Gaia: Saving Her, Saving Ourselves, Irisanya Moon invites us to reconnect with the Earth, to rediscover the many gifts she offers us, and to bring our own offerings to her heart in the form of care and connection. During this time when the climate is changing and the planet is in crisis it can be easy to lose hope and disconnect from our relationship to our planet. From the history of the goddess Gaia, to magical exercises and suggestions for nurturing and tending to the Earth, Irisanya opens the door for all of us to step inside the natural world and discover the beauty and wildness that is all around. This work beckons us back to a place of action, hope and wholeness. ~ Emily Morrison, Wise Woman Witchery
As we watch what is happening to our planet, many of us succumb to "ecological grief," as Irisanya Moon describes it in Earth Spirit - Gaia: Saving Her, Saving Ourselves. Our planet—Gaia—is suffering immensely from the impact of humanity. Grief or not, if we don't step up for Gaia, then... who? Irisanya offers a variety of ways to connect to Gaia personally, practices for living an Earth-friendly lifestyle and nurturing a Gaia-centric mindset, and suggestions for creating community to protect and heal Gaia right in your own neighborhood. With meditations, rituals, and group activities, Irisanya guides us toward "cultivating radical hope" that it's not too late to help our planet. With changed minds, behaviors, and choices, we can help Gaia heal. ~ Debra DeAngelo, author of Pagan Curious: A Beginner's Guide to Nature, Magic & Spirituality and Sacred Massage - The Magic of Soothing Touch
