Art is connected to life and to breath. The word inspiration which means drawing air into the lungs is also related to the primal breath. From the ancient Greek πνεῦμα (pneuma), the word soul, signifies breath, wind, spirit. Inspiration is a process through which the mystery of life is creatively expressed.

The End can be a lot of things including a major transition in consciousness, power, and wealth. I think the positive aspects of This Ending are what we should be focusing on. We only need 3% of conscious rebels in each country to make shit turn around.
We've got this. Merry Christmas!
Artemis Robison (www.artemis.fm) is a singer, songwriter, improviser, and creative polymath, whose spell biding instantly recognizable music flows from pop to ambient, to experimental, to electronic, without ever losing its identity, as emotive as it is beautiful. Please check out her new album Of This Dirt (https://music.artemis.fm/album/of-this-dirt).
Of This Dirt:
down the roots of our family tree
through the marrow of a breath
across the tides that river our veins
into the heart that dances us all
the pulse of a moment
infinite finiteness of a life
risen from ashes of galaxies’ pyres
up the spiral ladder
hand to hand
down the roots...
We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. The government has failed to protect us. To survive, it’s going to take everything we’ve got.
THIS IS WHAT EXTINCTION REBELLION IS DOING IN THE UK. WE SHOULD FOLLOW THEIR FOOTSTEPS AND PUT PRESSURE ON CANADA'S MEDIA TO REPORT ON CLIMATE CHANGE.
PICK UP THE PHONE/SEND A LETTER TO THE BBC *TODAY* CALL UPON THE BBC TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE. The BBC has failed to cover the severity of the issue of climate change for many years, and we need your help to rally them to their duty as a public service broadcaster. We need them to use their broadcasting power to lead worldwide media to fight climate change.
If you don't know who Fifteen-year-old Greta Thunberg is yet...this is a good time to find out.

I have been vegan for almost three years now. I decided to become vegan for environmental reasons when I returned from 6 months of research in China in 2016. I had been vegetarian since my yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India, in 2013, and on and off exploring local organic vegan, vegetarian and organic meat-eating habits before that. I have been eating organic food since my late 20s. I am amazed at all the health benefits that I have discovered adopting a plant-based diet, and the intense yoga that I have been able to do as a 40-year-old vegan woman. I am strong and doing things now that was unable to do in my 20s. I even learned longboarding this year. It’s so fun! Seriously, it’s the last thing I would ever of thought about trying as a 41-year-old woman…but there it is. I now own a longboard with fat wheels, and it’s one of my most favorite things to do when the temperature obliges…
Le départ de la marche sera samedi le 8 décembre à 14h00 à la Place du Canada à Montréal.
"Nous demandons à tous les paliers de gouvernements de :
1- Reconnaître que l’urgence climatique et la protection de la biodiversité sont les plus grands défis de notre époque et sensibiliser l’ensemble de la population à ce sujet.
2- Développer un plan climatique qui respecte les cibles exigées par le GIEC, c’est-à-dire réduire les émissions de GES d’au moins 45% d’ici 2030 (par rapport au niveau de 2010) et les éliminer complètement d’ici 2050. Présenter à la population un rapport annuel détaillé sur l’atteinte de ces cibles.
3- Interdire tout nouveau projet d’exploration ou d’exploitation des hydrocarbures, et mettre un terme à toutes les subventions directes ou indirectes aux combustibles fossiles."

My artwork, experimental films, and scholarly reflections emerge from a deep curiosity and fascination with the boundlessness of the human spirit, the limitlessness of the cosmic universe, the mythological, the spiritual, the exploration of my EARTH LIGHT body which emanates from infinity (this is the realm of the MYSTERY, the wildest imagination), as well as a real concern for our beautiful planet MOTHER EARTH. The premise of this heuristic body of work is that the current planetary crises are crises in human consciousness, crises of the humanity group soul/spirit. As an environmental advocate and consciousness activist, my work intends to intentionally participate in redesigning culture, the intentional participation in designing a post-growth ecological culture (this is the creative process of redesigning culture) for an ecologically sustainable and spiritually thriving planetary future. My intention is to shed light on the sacred multidimensional ways in which we potentiate the power of our consciousness. This body of work is a prayer to humanity to align our mind and hearts, to raise the power of our hearts, to develop methods and technologies to go inward towards the complexities and awareness of our individual connection to Source We are the Rainbow Warriors. If the world is indeed participatory, we manifest/dream this world into existence. Indeed, dear friends... a colourful future is ours to create!
