Animism is a world view that all our global ancestors shared; that nature – animals, plants, rivers and mountains – are alive and conscious. We describe the philosophy behind our project as a new animism.
The purpose driving Vale das Lobas is to facilitate a reconnection between humanity and nature. This is an urgent need, both for us humans and for the Earth. It is our disconnection from nature that permits the laying waste of our planet.
The New Animism is a retelling of the ancient story, in which the Earth is alive with purpose and meaning, and all life forms, including us, are intrinsic to her Nature.
