Recently, we received this lovely, original song from Facilitator Ellie Stock of St. Louis, MO, which was written on the occasion of the first Symposium she and her husband hosted.
The purpose of the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is to bring forth a just, thriving, and sustainable human presence on this planet.
One way to do that is to get people creatively engaged with imagining and generating a new culture – and that includes the images, music, and words we create and share with one another.
Click on the video above to get an idea of the melody, and read on for lyrics and downloadable sheet music. Please enjoy and share widely!
"Let the Earth Breathe" by Elinor Stock
Let the Earth breathe!
Let its heart beat,
pulsing and firing the fruit of its seed.
Let four winds tease,
air bright and clean.
converging and swirling through life’s mystery.
Let waters wreathe!
Let rivers be,
pristine and free from deep valleys to seas.
Let singing streams
stir slumbering leagues,
awakening the dreamer and changing the dream.
Let mountains rise!
Let forests thrive—
primal communities birthed to survive.
Let kindred be wise,
their courage and care for greed’s beckoning lies.
Let oceans race!
Let new waves chase
ancient tides washing ashore cosmic grace.
Let rhythms of peace,
still conflict’s pace,
emerging, connecting in trust’s healing place,
bold creatures revealing hope’s eternal face,
beloving, one dwelling, in Earth’s sacred space.
What does it look like when the Earth breathes? Check out this video.
