GROUNDED: How We Can Eradicate Eco-Colonialism As Our Enchantment With Rewilding Widens

January 13, 2019
Before we get lost in the endless enchantments of rewilding, I wanted to first post this piece.

I spent the past two days partaking in the Cambridge Conservation Forum's 2019 Symposium on Rewilding and its Effects On Nature and People. It was chalked full of inspiring, hopeful, and thought-provoking talks, bringing together farmers, conservationists, stakeholders and citizens to offer a balanced set of thoughts, studies and experiences which pushed audience members beyond the ideals of utopian rewilding dreams - making room for logic and empathy to set in away from the polarization seen in so many other aspects of humanity's movements towards sustainable living.

‘Conventional’ farmers, with clear disdain for the rewilding movement, took the stage. Sharing bravery how alienated they felt from being portrayed as 'the problem' so swiftly.

One Welsh hill farmer, by the name of Dafydd Morris-Jones, pointed out how he and his hold genealogies dating back hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of years to the precise place they are farming. He stated this sense of history cements their community while protecting the ancient language and culture his people have fought hard, over hundreds of years of British occupation, to protect. They didn’t need to be ‘rewilded’, he said, and approaching people like him in a foreign language, with foreign ideals, caused by foreign problems, with foreign solutions, is an act of eco-colonialism.

Having grown up listening carefully to the wisdom of Indigenous Peoples in my home province of Manitoba, Dafyyd’s story, pride, emotion, and strength mirrored the righteous sentiments of the First Nation, Indian, Metis and Inuit Peoples in what we today call Canada. I've written about the issues of this type of approach in my article about why I've chosen to eat a plant-based diet rather than a 'vegan' one. Modern descendants of colonisers, ignorantly ready to repeat the pains of the past, have a habit of approaching indigenous communities worldwide with the ‘right’ ideas and ‘solutions’ to perceived 'problems' (most often caused by the colonisers' own actions, habits, and needs) with an indigenous community's way of living. 

Dafydd's talk shaped the conversations in the days to come. The room - though balanced by age and gender almost 50/50 in speakers, conference goers, and facilitators (by impressive intention of its organizers), was (as pointed out on twitter by one of the few people of colour in attendance, an Oxford University student, Alejandro), filled with white, mostly British blood carriers. By pure pale view, at least 90% of the rewilding enthusiasts were white.

While we all had come to be enchanted by the science, stories, and spirit the symposium benevolently bestowed, the hallway and table conversations outside the panels were shaped by a shared concern about attempting to transforming local landscapes without input and participation from the beautifully diverse populations our countries are made up of.

Before and while we attempt to rewild the world, we have to look at land, history, language, and culture, building the movement by intentional inclusivity of local communities through conscious collaboration. It seems so obvious, but once again, a majority middle-to-upper class white movement had risen up - and despite its completely positive intentions and conscious leaders, my skin sharers had unintentionally begun to repeat the mistakes of our ancestors.

The conference creators responded quickly and thoughtfully to Alejandro's tweet, inviting him to transform from conference attendee to conference presenter to have his voice heard beyond twitter’s limited word count.

His talk rang true to issues pointed out by people of colour in recent years in the zero waste, vegan, and minimalist movements.

In the case of rewilding specifically, people of colour, especially in countries like Canada, The United Kingdom and The United States, don’t necessarily have a connection to the land in the same way colonists or those native to the lands do. Most often, people of colour are forced to gravitate towards urban and suburban areas - where green spaces are undoubtedly lacking, and nature is ofen beyond reach and budget - because that's where jobs are. Furthermore, with people of colour being made so abundantly (and inaccurately) aware of their ‘foreignness’ in the current political climate (despite the fact all whites have a measurable track record of being the worst kind of ‘foreign’ there is), makes it hard to feel a sense of belonging to any land.

Our bid to save nature by rewilding the landscape, our cities, and ourselves, ought to reflect the unified world in which we wish to live. This planet doesn't respond to single brush stroke solutions, it's diverse and requires a diverse approach in its healing. The only appropriate course of action ought to be collaborative, inclusive, intersectional, epathtic, and circular in communication, education, implementation, and policy - with decisions and opinions webbed with the wisdom of traditional and indigenous ecological knowledge.

If it is possible for us to fall back in Love with nature, it might also be possible for us to fall back in Love with one another as well - and rewilding, etched in its enchantments, could be one of many paths we can share to a truly more unified and greener future.

Grounded: Reframing How I Cover Climate Change By Igniting Enchantment

January 02, 2019

When you fly over the familiar patchwork quilt of the world below, looking down through the tiny plastic window of planes we shouldn't, but often take; the sight, though expected, is not a comforting one. Conventional farming is unnatural, eliminating more organisms than it creates through its callow understanding of the biodynamic sources of life.

Even wrapped in all my city-raised ignorance, nothing brings me more childlike credence than the sight of fallow lands. It is in nature's court that awe - now lost to the throes of conventional education which guides us so carelessly to our destiny of disenchantment - is replenished by all which is wild.

Other gateways exist, of course: mind-altering substances, deep spiritual understanding (of which most westerners know not), or being under childhood's spell. But the overall disconnection of our species from nature itself is, in sweet simplicity, the consequential cause of our climate's crisis.

SYSTEMIC THINKING

“The power and majesty of nature in all its aspects is lost on one who 
contemplates it merely in the detail of its parts and not as a whole”.
— Pliny the Elder

I’ve realized over the past years, as I’ve tried to grasp the in-depth intricacies of issues faced by this planet, that we’re missing major portions of the stories we tell.

Humans struggle to think systemically, it is why opinions polarize populations, and why we have such a punchy penchant for fundamentalist behaviour, especially online. Bias is so easily buttressed by our ignorance, bolstering our inability to move beyond the black-or-white logic we’ve come accustomed to.

The idea that another’s opinions are categorically ‘wrong’ in order for ours to be ‘right’ keeps our egos fully fed but prevents us from coming up with collaborative ways of communicating and blocks us from the importance of perspective. 

This way of thinking blinds us from the inevitable reality that in order to source solutions to the myriad of problems our planet and its inhabitants face, we need to share a state of sensible speculation and be willing to admit when we've set our sails wrong, so we can collectively right the course again. It is only then that we'll be susceptible to sagacity, science, and spirit - the holy trinity of discovery - and learn to think holistically. 

CHILD'S PLAY

“All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I spent the majority of last year revaluating the way I write. I don’t tend to be very succinct, and on the subject of sustainability I'm not sure I can be. But, when I wrote 'Leo & The Lion Learn of Love' the night of the terrorist attacks in Paris, I tried to coalesce all the wisdom which I would have wished to have taught my nephew, had I passed. The friendly familiarity of the picture book allowed me to share all I had to say in a healthy and hopeful way, and I have begun to suspect the conversations around climate change require a similar sentiment.

Before industry and technology took over teaching our tots, storytelling and fairy tales explained the complexities of our collective reality through an approachable nightly narrative. These tales gave form to fears and dreams, offering wisdom and discovery through enchantment's lens, nourishing imagination with hope while guiding children through life's uncertainties free from anxiety. 

climate change, systemic thinking, ethical writers, Leotie Lovely, enchantment, rewinding, traditional ecological knowledge, indigenous ecological knowledge, regenerative agriculture, soil health, holistic thinking, green living, vegan, zero waste living, conscious living, Leotie Lovely, conscious lifestyle, sustainable lifestyle, natural lifestyle, slow livingCurrently, the angle with which we communicate about climate change is based around blame, shame, doom and gloom. It affects all of us, enraging us or depressing us; putting the weight of the world on the shoulders of each citizen. It is scientific, journalistic, and heavy, so filled with a sense of hopelessness that the collective overwhelm causes the majority of our society to ignore the issues completely.

All of this has inspired me to spend the majority of my time in the coming year on a new series. I'm calling it 'Grounded', and my goal with each piece is to make the conversation around climate change more approachable. With each story, I'll attempt to ignite that sense of enchantment I spoke of, using the magical tales found in the subjects of indigenous ecological knowledge, traditional ecological knowledge, regenerative agriculture, and rewilding. Giving mother nature, in all her majesty, a voice. One which might ground, unite and inspire us towards actions of hope.

Celebrate All 7 Types Of Love This Holiday Season

December 07, 2018
ethical gifts, sustainable gifts, ethical fashion, sustainable fashion, zero waste gifts, zero waste fashion, buy me once, Leotie Lovely, slow fashion, slow living gift ideas, ethical living gift ideas, sustainable living gift ideas

The Ancient Greeks divided the word LOVE into seven spokes, each one individually unique yet working in tandem to strengthen the other in continuous motion. Within the wheel is the love for humanity (Agape), familial love (Storge), a love which endures (Pragma), self-love (Philautia), affectionate love (Philia), playful love (Ludus) and erotic love (Eros).

No matter what holiday you are purchasing gifts for, Love is usually the intention behind your hunt, so rather than dividing up gift guides in the ways I have in the past, I thought I would gather some suggestions along this theme to ensure what we buy reflects what we mean.

PRAGMA - Enduring Love
 Pragma is the Love developed over time through effort, demonstrating the patience and tolerance that allow relationships to continuously flower. You find Pragma in married couples who have been together for countless years, finding harmony and friendship which has lasted decades. Celebrating PRAGMA with gifts given is easy in the ethical realm as products are curated in the same way, with hard work, good intentions, and an intention for durability ... maybe even a lifetime guarantee.
