A breakdown Sanctuary

A breakdown Sanctuary is an Integration ARTifact.

how might we remember regulation with the earth through attuning to rest as a reconfiguration, not mere pause? not rest due to exhaustion, but because of metamorphosis. rest not as escape, but as an inquiry into how stillness sustains life. what if we were to weave a sanctuary out of the broken pieces of our world, of our identities, of our failures, our shortcomings and our excesses? and, like the bird’s nest made from ephemeral fragments of the forest, protect and nourish the potential for new life. what if our spirit’s ripening, our revolutionary dreams and our species survival depended on reviving this terrestrial intimacy: learning to recycle our brokenness into the sanctuaries that will birth unknown worlds.
