Pachamama Journey

By Susannah and Ya'Acov

As we write, we are preparing to set off again for Ecuador on our Pachamama Journey into the Andes and Amazon to connect again with the Achuar, to share, learn and discover more of what we may do to support their stand to save the rainforest that is being threatened again by oil exploration. The Achuar are standing strongly on behalf of us all to protect the forest.

We passionately invite you to join in supporting them to protect their beautiful forest and through that, all life on earth.

As well as being the home to a huge diversity of life, and home to their way of life, all life on earth depends on the Amazonian lungs of the world. With climate change becoming a reality which all of us can feel and see, protecting the remaining rainforests now has become an even more vital part of giving the future of human life on earth a chance and taking up our role as guardians not destroyers of life.

The Achuar are supported by their radical alliance with people from the industrialised world, which includes us and many of you, in the form of the Pachamama Alliance.  It’s a potent time to manifest our love for life. We invite you to join in and take a step in action by connecting with the Pachamama Alliance in some way, making a donation, participating in or training to run their inspirational symposiums.

At the recent “Dancing with the Heart of the World” workshop, the generosity of the group raised $1084 for the Pachamama Achuar fund. Yeah! Thank you all.

Here’s to the joyous power of shared responsibility,

Susannah and Ya’Acov
