Environmental Leadership Training Blessing

by Judith Felsen, Ph.D.

To you who yearn to be a voice for our Earth,
be it a  whisper shared locally
or a call heard globally,
may you speak for that which cannot share itself
and protect that which cannot defend itself.

To you who are called to be our planet’s leaders
may you serve as connector of peoples and plants
and keep the heart of the earth and soul of nature
close and present in your mind.

To you who are guardians of gaia
and caregivers for all that seek to thrive in our world
may you join with beings in nature to share concerns
so that all will know earth’s truths
as felt in the heart
and sensed in the mind as one.

To you who have accepted the task of stewardship
may you feel empowered by the strength of the wind,
blessed by the waters of dew, snow and rain,
comforted by the warmth of sunlight and  gentleness of moonbeams,
and may you be guided by all that has been given you within and without
to keep your direction clear, your courage strong and your heart open.

Thank you to all of you.
Let the joining and work begin!
