That’s a beautiful and powerful way of living and it’s the only way we really know how to live fully. Our western industrial capitalistic society is just the replication of our detrimental behaviours and trauma-based decisions. We were born to be connected and feel this connection amongst beings that surround us, we were born to be mindful and to be present, to heal from our own food, and to regenerate from our own communities. Buen Vivir is a way for us to be humans again, to care, to be bound to one another, to love, and to live. Beautiful article!
