Bioregional animists make use of animistic core values to deepen their relationship with their own bioregion – their Life-Place. They strive to learn as much as they can about their particular Land – e.g. local flora, fauna, topography, climate patterns, etc – as well as about the local mythology, folklore, traditions and rituals that have developed from that specific Land and thus hold wisdom that teaches us how to appropriately support and live in harmony with the ecological, social and cultural uniqueness of our Place.
Bioregional Animists focus on the richness of the bioregion they are part of and place the local other-than-human people in the centre of the conversation. Deep inspiration is drawn from the ways of our Earth-honouring Ancestors, both human and other-than-human. Bioregional Animists deeply care about what kind of Ancestors they wish to be and work towards the protection and regeneration of the Land, passing these core values to future generations.
