Joy is the gem of experience from which sorrow grows.
It is Joy that sorrow protects.
a collaborative personal and planetary peacemaking project engaged in creative witness to unnecessary loss, pain, and suffering, with resolve to forward the wake-up and a universally compassionate marketplace.
Extinction Witness is a labor of love grounded in spiritual practice with no religious affiliation.
Support is greatly appreciated.
Extinction Witness was initiated in 2012 to support those who are informed about the 6th mass extinction, know the climate science, and live in “a world of wounds”, which has largely been under the radar outside academia and community advocacy circles until now.
Awareness of mass species extinction is thankfully growing as the situation grows extremely dire. So, we are on the cusp of effective change. Extinction Witness also, thus, celebrates the rapid response in play at the level of whole systems and localities.
The present mass extinction of species can be allayed, near term human extinction is an uncertainty, and many who are now on the edge of existence can and are being revived. Let's see all walks of life included in R. Buckminster Fuller's assertion that everyone can enjoy the essentials of comfort when more is created from less. Put benevolent genius to the test and celebrate this.
We are in the midst of massive loss with more to come. The growing practice of creative mourning rituals for lost and endangered species represents a healthy, healing, and hopeful response to awareness of mass species extinction. Embodied grieving relieves the person of emotions associated with past, present, and anticipated loss so as to maintain spiritual vitality and avoid suffering.
