Srishti Sambrahma 2020: Celebrating the Earth Mother

Lifeline Nurtured - 1

The Srishti Sambrahma Celebration seeks to create a circle of conversation around people's identities, culture, community, the earth and the other living beings that inhabit it. Our ancestors lived in harmony with the land and with what it provides, with creatures big and small, while staying mindful of the ecological boundaries of the natural world and not taking from the land more than they needed. Lifeline Nurtured will explore how we can stay
interconnected with all life forms.
