Resources 

This is an attempt to provide additional information for those searching.
It begins with a collection of articles on ecology and includes plants with medicinal and healing properties, the chemistry and impact from essential oils to endangered plant species used commonly in practices of skincare and aromatherapy. 

This page includes information about the "Isms" tied to the ways in which oppression, the colonizing mind and privilege operates in the structure of American and International systems.
 
Because of the long standing history of violence that comes from human hands, please educate yourself and share resources.
We may not choose the times we live in, but we can choose our actions and behavior. We can slow down our physiological body using breath. We can choose to think inclusively, practice patience and an open heart, instead of reacting out of fear and using violence. 

As an A
nimist, I am deepening my connection to the creation & Creator. As I come across articles, videos and philosophies of interest, I include links under energetics and spirit resources. 

Ecology

/ēˈkäləjē/  noun
The branch of biology that deals with the relations of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings.
