THE 4 BEHAVIORS

INTENTIONALLY LIVE YOUR HUMAN NATURE

Act

Full Ecology assumes action. By waking each day and moving through the world, we are acting as part of it. So are trees, and grizzly bears, mountains and goldfish. Many of us are acutely aware of the immediate need for action – not just any action, but what the Buddhist traditions call right action.

While inspiring, the pressure to get it right can be overwhelming. How do we humans actively contribute to the wellbeing of ourselves and all our relations – to the natural world?

True to the bedrock wisdom of saints, sages and scientists of all times and traditions, the primary thing Full Ecology can do is help us place all our attention and heart, thought in devotion to who we really are. Our True Nature. And, as each of you knows, this is not an act that can be held in any formula. Instead it’s a lifelong way of being – dynamic, responsive, ever deepening.

Sustaining that process is a matter of attention. Even small acts along the way can help. We have compiled eight modest practices to try out right now.

What can you tell from a hydrangea in full bloom? Maybe something about beauty - something about reliability in the big middle of uncertainty. Maybe something about hanging in there - about stepping out of the way of your own magnificence. Since, there it is, whether...

Full Ecology can best be found in the times and spaces that on most days you tend not even to see. Sort of like the Chinese ancients observed long ago when they wrote only fish cannot know water. There are circumstances sustaining human life that none of us tends to...

Although our Keynotes & Workshops are carefully tailored for the needs of each specific organization, their heart is always geared towards combating the damage done by our separation from nature. Their end goal is always tangible, sustainable change, whether personally, relationally, or organizationally. The EIGHT INSTRUCTIONS—the core principles of Full Ecology—serve as the connective thread interlacing all our workshops, presentations and keynotes. Below are several examples of past keynotes the illustrate the dynamic range of topics and struggles our work addresses.

The tools and insights of Full Ecology aren't only for those who have the wilderness at their fingertips. The 8 INSTRUCTIONS can be practiced and celebrated in cities, offices, suburbs, and homes: anywhere there is intention and desire to reconnect with the natural world.
