We are exploring the basic nature and culture of land-based people. Clearly, we are all dependent on the planet for providing much, if not all of the requirements for our life in the physical material plane. Our bodies are composed of the material we ingest as food, breath, liquid and sensory stimuli. Our homes and sacred places are located on this planet and are constructed of material that is provided by Earth. The stability of fuel, money and psychological states are directly impacted by how this physical world is manipulated.

With all this instability, many people engage in intense over-consumption or wasteful attitudes toward resources. Other people are hyper-focused on finding another planet or dimension to live on despite being as equally dependent on Earth for their life, family, body and pleasure as anyone else.

Land-based people acknowledge the location of all material experiences as the living Planet Mother. Land-based people celebrate and serve in ways that support Planet Mother in all her transformations. Land-based people exist globally.

Colonization is a fearful pattern to attempt to align the lifestyle of land-based people with poverty. This pattern has come to assault many of the land based people all over the globe. To accomplish this, currency is a necessary invention to assign wealth to an arbitrary symbol.

As land-based people honor and innovate a living culture, specific patterns shape the creative expression of our practices. We have always grown food, cared for trees and fed nearby animals. We have always focused on using our  breathing, stretching, music, dance, and walking as methods of stepping outside of time and ego. We have for eons had sex to reproduce and educated our children within the family.
