The Earth Medicine Alliance, a new non-profit dedicated to educating people on how to mend their relationships with the natural world and its other-than-human inhabitants, will be hosting its first annual conference at the Universalist Center at 1187 Franklin St. in San Francisco on November 6th. The day-long event will be followed on November 7th by a variety of outdoor ceremonies on public land in and around San Francisco, so people can find what “earth-honoring” might look like in practice. Online registration is now open for next month’s event.
Sound intriguing? Daniel Foor, the Executive Director of the EMA, describes the alliance as “an interfaith 501(c)3 non-profit that supports earth-honoring traditions and ways of life, especially as they help us to remember our relatedness with all of life and the natural world. This potential to collaborate around the common intent of mending our relations with the natural world is, for me, the heart of our work as an alliance.”
