We welcome you to this special issue of Light on Light Magazine on “Sacred Sites and Spirituality in Nature” for Earth Day 2019.
The issue has three parts. First is a series of articles by award-winning authors setting out the context, and calling, of Sacred Sites and nature spirituality. Second is a central section dedicated to the seminal Sacred Sites work and calling of Dr. Mindahi Bastida Muñoz (featured on the cover) and his global associates. Mindahi is connected to Light on Light and UNITY EARTH through the work of The Center for Earth Ethics (CEE)’s “Original Caretakers” and “Original Instructions” initiatives. This CEE program works also with Forum 21 Institute (Forum 21) of which many of us at Light on Light Magazine are a part. In turn CEE and Forum 21 partner with many major international networks and agencies, like UNESCO, the Vatican’s Laudato Si initiative, and many others. The last section of this Special Issue highlights some major global activisms around the urgency of Sacred Sites and then ends with several of Light on Light’s regular features.
Closing the issue, we provide a special contemplative and yogic meditation from Karuna based on Lakota Chief Crazy Horse’s “Seven Generations” message (attributed to him shortly before his assassination in 1877). The deepest of spiritual practice concerns profound interconnection. So, in keeping with Light on Light’s emphasis on spiritual practice and inspired lifestyle we offer that closing meditation, especially looking toward our next Special Issue in June which will be with the International Day of Yoga Committee at the United Nations once again.
This issue is informative and inspiring and we are so honored to share it with you!
