Awaken the Connection is an investigation of the lost connection to spirituality and the natural world. I believe that our global issues stem from the lack of connection to ourselves and nature. Our world is a reflection of our minds. When we neglect to recognize our health as an interconnected system it affects us not only in the physical sense, but our actions, thought and intent. I believe our problems can be solved by starting with the Self. By capturing the stories of individuals who believe in the lost connection and the methods one can use to reconnect, I hope to bring attention to this issue and inspire others to start their own journey. In addition, through a website I have provided resources for others dedicated to the exploration of differing perspectives, ideas and states of mind. I hope the results of my journey thus far will give courage to others to look inward and help us realize that if we want a changed world, we have to start within ourselves.
