“Two kinds of gratitude: The sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give.” – Edwin Arlington Robinson, American poet
This short episode was recorded in a hotel room while I was visiting family for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Inspired by the upcoming Giving Tuesday, I’m sharing my favorite charitable organizations, most of which are dedicated to wildlife conservation. I make my giving choices based on my values and my dream for the world. What organizations align with your values and vision?
Wildlife rehabilitation and educational outreach:
North Country Wild Care (my regional rehabilitator network)
Adirondack Wildlife Refuge (wildlife rehabilitation and education)
Animal Help Now (connecting the public with wildlife rehabilitators so animals get help fast)
Wildlife and wilderness conservation:
Wildlands Network (wildlife corridors)
Alongside Wildlife Foundation (research and outreach so we can live alongside wildlife)
Panthera (big cat conservation worldwide)
Rainforest Alliance (preserving rainforest habitat)
Victim’s Voice (giving domestic violence victims a legal voice)
Olympic Mountain EarthWisdom Circle (OMEC) (preserving indigenous wisdom)
If you would like to chat about this episode or learn more about yoga, Shamanic Reiki, wildlife conservation, or other ways we can bring healing to all of the beings on our beautiful planet Earth, join us in the Shamanic Flow Circle group on Facebook and sign up for the newsletter.
