Yesterday we experienced the feeling of Regenerate Cascadia being born as a social movement in the world. In the photo above, you can see me giving a talk at Lost Valley Educational Center just south of Eugene, Oregon to an audience of 50 people.It was incredible to hold a collective dream for the future of humanity and watch it take root in the hearts of many people at the same time. Many had tears in their eyes. The energy was palpable. Some would say afterwards that they had been waiting for this moment all of their lives.This is only our second stop

Look at how massive the deforestation is in Oregon.This is the Willamette Valley that stretches from Portland to the north (left in this image) to Eugene in the south (on the right).What would it take to regenerate this massive area? How differently must people think about their relationships with land? What kinds of economic activities would make sense if life was treated as sacred?Questions like these will guide our #RegenerateCascadia tour that begins on Sunday. Penny Heiple and I arrive in Seattle tonight and meet with the organizing team tomorrow morning.We will enter the Columbia River Gorge for several days of events starting Sunday,

Say hello to Manuela. She is one of my dear friends and a powerful leader in Barichara, Colombia. It is largely thanks to her that syntropic agroforestry has arrived in our local community as a powerful way to grow food, restore soils, and bring native forest back to degraded lands.In this brief article, I would like to share how Manuela is applying syntropic agroforestry techniques to restore a dry stream in one of the important drainages of our territory. Yesterday we walked the land with her and were blown away by all that she has set in motion throughout the last

This morning I am sitting with the emotions of what it will truly take to regenerate entire continents…Systems of globalized extraction are so pervasive and destructive. They will need to collapse as part of the process. This implies a great deal of suffering and loss that is far from over.Yet in the same process there will be a growing wave of humanity seeking harmony with the Earth. Communities rallying together in service to life. How can the turbulence of such a blend be survived?I sit with this deeply because I know so much about what is happening at the planetary scale.

Our sacred journey through the Colorado River Basin has brought us all the way to Hoover Dam‚Ää‚ÄĒ‚Ääand soon we will arrive at the Sea of Cortez in Mexicali. Along the way, we have held meetings with many people who care deeply for the rivers that flow into the Colorado.We passed through Cortez and met with a group of amazing regenerative practitioners who have devoted themselves to various parts of the San Juan River. It was inspiring to learn about their ecological knowledge, educational activities with children, and deep connections with local landscapes.Every time this happens, we explore how a local

It is really something to experience a tapestry of landscapes by the way a river runs through them… bringing water-giving life everywhere it flows.We are on a sacred journey following the Colorado River from its birthplace high in the Rocky Mountains all the way to where it no longer runs into the Sea of Cortez in Mexico. As we travel from place to place, we feel the great weaving of landscapes made possible by this incredible tapestry of living communities.In this blog post, I want to share some of the magnificence that can be found when two great rivers meet each

We are on a sacred journey to regenerate the Colorado River and all of her tributaries across the mountains and deserts of the Southwest. In the last few days, we have visited two major watersheds that provide source waters to this massively important hydrological system.On Monday and Tuesday, we were in the town of Paonia helping weave dialogues about how to regenerate the North Fork of the Gunnison River. This is a landscape made famous by its breath-taking beauty and hard-working farming community.Major rivers that contribute to the main flow of the Colorado RiverWe have been in an active support role

Imagine if regenerative efforts were organized around major landscape systemsTwo days ago, we visited where the Colorado River is born, as we embarked on a journey from headwaters in the Rocky Mountains to the Sea of Cortez.
