Why I am a Champion for this Cause
I’ve only been working with Primitive Pursuits for about 8 months now, but have been hooked on primitive skills and the nature connection movement for almost 8 years. I am so thankful to have found Primitive Pursuits and it is amazing to work here. I truly believe in the work we do, and it is so amazing to have a job that allows me so much alignment with my personal vision. When I look at the state of the world today it is truly frightening how disconnected we have become. Not only to the natural world but to each other. To me this feels like the root of many of the problems we face as a culture. Reconnecting people to the natural world is my favorite form of medicine for this phenomenon known as “nature deficit disorder”. Leading people to reconnect with their natural curiosity and engage their 5 senses is pure magic for forming meaningful relationships to the natural world.
The work that Primitive Pursuits does allows this vision to reach hundreds of people, from pre-schoolers to adults. I can’t think of anything more needed than helping people reconnect to the natural world. The result is more environmental stewards, more people who can step back and make conscious choice about how they are living and interacting with the world rather than just continuing along with what our culture tells us is “normal”.
I will complete this campaign by reaching out to friends and family and anyone willing to listen. Anyone who has met me knows how important this vision is to me. I am constantly pushing my own skills and striving to be more aware and connected. This cause means a lot to me because it is truly in alignment with my vision and how i live my life. I am constantly making choice based on this vision, so to me it is a reality. It is something I am in contact with every day and I am constantly in awe of how this work affects peoples lives. If you are able to make any donation, no amount is too small, please consider helping me reach my goal to help more people get connected. Thank You!
