Art Heals Earth

Art Heals Earth

Art Heals Earth is an inquiry into the connection between personal and planetary healing. Through interviews, stories, and meditations, Art Heals Earth investigates how creative expression can strengthen our relationship with the earth in the age of the Anthropocene. Considering the possibility that the climate crisis is also a crisis of the human spirit, Art Heals Earth deepens into the question: why are the arts a necessary part of enacting heart-centered environmental stewardship?

The spider, dropping down from twig,
 Unfolds a plan of her devising,
 A thin premeditated rig
 To use in rising. 

And all that journey down through space,
 In cool descent and loyal hearted,

Thus I, gone forth as spiders do
 In spider’s web a truth discerning,
 Attach one silken thread to you
 For my returning.

- The Spider’s Web (A Natural History), by E.B. White
