THE 4 BEHAVIORS
INTENTIONALLY LIVE YOUR HUMAN NATURE
What are the beliefs that run you as an individual. What are the beliefs that run us as families and communities, as economies and governments? In particular, what’s the story with believing we’re
separate and distinct from nature?
Separate and distinct from, well, everybody, everything?
Ask is the behavior that looks into these questions.
Where did all of this come from?
What are the payoffs that keep you, and all of us, acting from me stories –
what about me? me first!
To reclaim human nature you slow to Ask. And asking contributes immediately to the health of social ecology: the relationships you have with others, and, more immediately, with yourself.

Yes, you. As a leader, as a human dedicated to the solution. You as nature, in nature.
It’s time to get quiet. In fact, it’s the season of quiet here in the Northern Hemisphere. Check outdoors. Even if you’re farther south, there’s been a change. The grass has gone brown, the deciduous trees have dropped their leaves, the water levels in streams have...

There’s a place in the southwestern corner of Montana where the river weaves a fine Spiga chain through the wetland and willowed prairies at the ankles of a soaring stretch of Rocky Mountains. The mountains run east to west – an orientation adopted by precious few...
Yesterday, we went to a place in Yellowstone National Park where wolves live. We weren’t right there with them, but close enough to stand with other people with high powered spotting scopes to watch from afar. The Junction Butte pack has a good batch of new pups....
Thinking on it, I find it hard to see how one can love the earth but not fellow human beings. And also, it seems incongruous that one could love humanity and exact sins of degradation against nature. Whether wings and feathers or hands and fingers, we share the same...
In the Reiki tradition, there’s a graphic symbol for harmony – for balance. Sei hei ki. To me, it looks like a dancer, or maybe something winged, and I’ve heard that to draw it well requires open, relaxed and sweeping gestures. People who know and practice Reiki use...
Today the temperature around our home hovers near 0°. "Can super cold weather make me tired?" I ask. We talk about it. It can. Sometimes. That's why it's good to sleep in a cool room. It’s also why trees and fields and waterways need winter. To rest well. Whatever the...
These are not easy days. Here in the northern hemisphere, nearing winter solstice, we’re deep in the cold and dark. Add to that the count – ten months of COVID-19. Like the dark, the pandemic is here with us. So are other circumstances – embers of rumination and...
Well. We’ve got it. We who, since mid-March, have essentially cloistered – masked, sanitized, distanced. We even disinfect our keys and doorknobs. How in the world did this virus find us? It did. Our symptoms are quite light. We’ll make it fine. But, like you, we have...
In a functioning ecology, the dialogue between wound and medicine is ongoing; there is a call and response always happening. Francis Weller Do chickens or the eggs come first? They do. Am I living or dying? You are. So, it goes and goes. Call and response. The...
