Today I honored to host Day Seven of the Virtual Blog Tour for Landscapes of Your Soul by Essence of Wild. Yesterday Essence of Wild visited Karina’s Inner Space to chat about the healing spirit of the land. I hope you read that one as well.
Below is my interview with Essence of Wild on the topic of ancient wisdom in these lands as answered by Jason Smiley of Essence of Wild.
1. Jason, do you feel that your ancestors would approve of how you are seeking and teaching ancient wisdom through your Essence of Wild site?
I’m sure our ancestors would approve of any connection to ancient wisdom in our modern times. The main thing is that we practice it. Times do change, and with it our way of using ancient wisdom can also evolve so that we are better served by Mother Earth. Whilst it is good to connect physically with communities, an online presence allows us to reach out to a much wider audience and to bring our own particular essence of wild into their lives.
By making our Landscapes of Your Soul meditation pack available via the website we are enabling so many more to deepen into the process. Also, the actual cost to Mother Earth in materials is substantially less than if we made the pack available only as a physical product and in these times of great unsustainability this surely is important.
2. What wisdom would you give your 16 year old selves if you could get a letter to them?
This is an interesting one. I think when I was 16 my higher self knew exactly what I should be doing but I was distracted by life and didn?t have the courage to step up to what I needed to be doing. My letter would tell me to listen to my heart, to heed my own inner wisdom, my intuition, and to spend more time on the land exploring my connections with nature.
3. How do you see the world changing as more people embrace the concept of a sacred landscape as a vehicle for ancient wisdom, Jason?
The ancient wisdom of Mother Earth is all we need in many ways. Surely as more of humanity come to realize this we will begin to live more in harmony with her and recognise her needs are just as important as our own.
Land based communities would be much more sustainable and healthy as they would dip into the landscape for guidance rather than spending countless hours watching tv and reading newspapers in the hope of keeping up to date with what matters.
