Ecosattva Vows

The Ecosattva Vows

by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone, from Active Hope

I vow to myself and to each of you:

To commit myself daily to the healing of our world 

and the welfare of all beings.

To live on earth more lightly and less violently 

in the food, products, and energy I consume.

To draw strength and guidance from the living Earth, 

the ancestors, the future generations, and my siblings 

of all species.

To support others in our work for the world 

and to ask for help when I need it.

To pursue a daily practice that clarifies my mind, 

• strengthens my heart, 

• and supports me in observing these vows.

Dedicated to the loving memory of Polly Higgins
