In order to foster wellbeing within ourselves and within our communities, we must nourish six types of connection:
- Connection to body and self
- Connection to family, friends, and community
- Connection to land and ground
- Connection to the sacred
- Connection to the human project
- Connection to culture
On an instinctual level, this makes sense. Of course, the larger question is: how do we actually do this?
One way, is to foster a sense of curiosity about how the six elements of connection show up in our lives, and in the lives of people we are in relationship with.
