A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

Loveletter Corner

Georgia Papadakis spent a few months with the Medicine Wheel Collective last year and sent this sweet note from her travels…

Hey there, People of Earthaven,

This is my belated goodbye.

Dominator culture maintains that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” or that personal growth stems most measurably from painful experience. I’ve always been suspicious of this attitude, observing that while hardship shapes us, it’s in joy and continuity that we are able to shape ourselves. My two months at Earthaven confirmed that for me; for the first time in a very long time, I was able to breathe and get some perspective. I was constantly impressed with the community that you all work to create… even more so now given the contrast of being back in the world outside.

Thanks to everyone who made me feel welcome and valued, and who caused me to smile at any point. I appreciate it more than I can say, and I carry it with me.

Love,

Georgia

breathe, dominator, goodbye, love, smile
