Earthbound

Earthbound like Holistic Activism is part of a wider movement that understands how our activism must go deeper than merely reacting to the destructive nature of humans who have lost their way. We must through our activism be part of the healing that causes this disconnection.

Acknowledging the full extent of the climate and ecological emergency can be overwhelming for many, and in the face of wanting to make positive change, we can become constricted by the very behaviours that led us into it. 

Dan and Johanna now run courses that help people to “come back to Self, come back to Earth, and come back to Life”.
