In the age of the scattered tribe how do we find connection? Metanoia refers to a change of heart influenced by a spiritual conversation or experience. When we come into conversation with plants, animals, and other nonhuman beings on a physical level, we are also inviting an opportunity to open ourselves on a spiritual level. As we engage with these conversations, we may go beyond the limiting scope of human language. A shift in the direction of listening, relating, and understanding. This work is an homage to plant and rock spirits—a recognition of the power of conversation with plants, animals, stones, and other nonhumans. It is a way of living in connection—with reciprocity and collaboration.
