Our Purpose, Our Planet & Our Humanity
One of the great gifts of Five Element Acupuncture is that it is based on the fundamental principal that we, as human beings, are a microcosm of the greater macrocosm of this planet. We are not separate from nature. We are not separate from other human beings. What does this mean? This means that we feel more lethargic and withdrawn in the winter – we want to hibernate. In the summer we want to stay out later, and we feel more energized for connection with others. When we remember to care for ourselves as we are re-learning how to care for the environment, we will find ourselves more connected with our bodies and with the world around us.
This beautiful documentary, Future Dreaming: A Conversation with David Martin, is a dialogue about humanity and its interaction with this planet. Filmed in Antarctica, it offers a stunning landscape to this conversation with Dr. Martin as he discusses our potential to heal while we remember our connection to the planet and every person we meet. He reminds us that each of us matters, and with intention, every one of us can make a difference in the world around us.
