Ecology and Yogagaia:
Yogagaia is the Yoga of Earth and Kosmic consciousness, cosmic with a K as cosmos with a K, as defined by Ken Wilber is the sum total of reality, including matter, body, mind and spirit. It was created and is managed by Hasita Agathe Nadai commonly called Agi. She is creating Yogagaia where through the practice of yoga our deep connection to the planet and ecology is revealed. Yogagaia reminds us all that we are connected to the planet and the cosmos, and that we have to beware of it, by finding our place and knowing who we are on planet earth.
Being the transformer of the human toward a new species:
Evolving into understanding our intrinsic link with ecology and our true place in nature and realizing how we are an integral part of it also consists in the practice of yogagaia. Practicing Ahimsa (non violence) with a consciousness that perceives that everything is connected, that every action has an effect.
To co-create with the Universe an ecozoic era
Developing a vision of an ecozoic era and creating the intention represents the practice of Yogagaia. This process of creation will be ultimately the fulfillment of the manifestation of the human species’s true nature and ecology.
Ecology and Gibbons:
These endangered, small, arboreal apes are considered to be among the world’s greatest acrobats. They can leap distances of 40 feet at speeds of up to 35 mph while 200 feet above the ground. This swinging from branch to branch is called brachiating. The Eastern black gibbon (Nomascus nasutus) is one of the rarest primates in the wild. The Hainan gibbon (Nomascus hainanus) is the rarest mammal in the world. Gibbons are one of the few serial monogamous primates, and whether on the ground or in the trees, they are known for their dexterity and ability to walk upright. Often referred to as the “songbirds” of the primate family and the most musical land mammal, gibbons can project their voices up to 2 miles through the dense rain forest canopy. Unfortunately, as ecology is often wrongly considered, their natural habitat is being destroyed at the alarming rate of 32 acres per minute ! This destruction means the disappearance of their melodious songs as well.
