“In order to bring the essence of who we are to our lives, we must take time to remember the dreams that inspire us, and uncover the purpose that guides us,” says Ya’Acov Darling Khan. “As a species, we have created a situation that threatens our very survival. We have been living in what the Achuar people in the Ecuadorian Amazon call a ‘trance.’ Fueled by decades of unconscious consumption and disconnection from the natural world, this trance has put the knowledge that we are all interconnected strands in the complex and delicate balance of life on earth to sleep.
