Welcome to Living Systems Institute
"Our task is to heal nature, produce abundance, sequester excess atmospheric carbon and reduce the violence. We do that through cooperation with the living things around us."
I belong to a community
that includes all the living things around me.
. . .
My purpose is to contribute
to the well being of that community.
. . .

My own well being derives
from these connections into the community.
