We live in a wild world. Brimming with strangeness, banality, painful trauma, and potent beauty. Perhaps it has always been this wild, and always will be – but we can’t help but wonder if there’s something particularly crucial about this moment we’re living in. Riding the cusp of so much technological change, environmental disturbance, and societal upheaval, it’s a challenging, albeit fascinating, time to be alive.
It can be difficult to know how to navigate in the face of so much planetary flux, as an individual and a society. The loss of connection to our earth, our community, and ourselves has left us feeling lost in our own bodies, and at war with our own species. We must take a breath and start to ask the questions that will truly push society forward. Where are we going? What does it mean to be a human being? How can we be a part of a more harmonious, collective existence?
In search of a space to explore these questions, we have decided to create Mood, as a creative forum for community, progress, and conversation. We have decided, through the doubt and the fear and unrest, that it is possible to save the world, even in the seemingly smallest ways. It will be a challenge, but we will go on anyway.
We have decided that it’s time to reclaim our own inherent goodness, and the goodness of the world. To break the patterns that no longer serve us, to take responsibility for our actions and to embody the principles we believe in. To reconnect with the beauty and wildness of our Planet Earth & our universe. To resurrect the sense of community that’s been lost, to love, to connect and to share.
We are here to transform the space that we exist within, and shift the values of our culture. We hope that Mood can help to cultivate a new vision of ourselves, and with that, a new vision of our world. We would love for you to join us, or at the very least, pause to consider the power of possibility at your own fingertips.
