Whether your family line ends with you, or you are simply alive at this time of transformation of life on the planet, you are the last of your lineage. All over the world, human beings are taking part in the transformation of life as we know it.
Next to San Francisco Bay rises San Bruno Mountain, one of 18 global biodiversity hotspots. Innumerable rare and endangered species live here; even some ice age plants have survived, and three 5000 year-old shell mounds are sheltered in its ravines.
In a series of three events on the mountain, we will visit environments which support the lives of these rare species. During two of them – through observation, through shamanic meditations, through explorations of biomimicry – we’ll “debrief” butterflies, plants, animals and birds in relation to the wisdom they carry, or the challenge of maintaining their existence. In the third of the series, animals whose lives are no longer sustained by conditions on the mountain will also be honored, and a relationship with them explored.
