Eearth Moon-Fire Ceremony

Eearth Culture is an integrated system of belief, knowledge and practice that is devoted to environmental sustainability and human contentment.

A fictionalised introduction to Eearth Culture - the Eearth novel - can be downloaded here as a free .pdf, or purchased as an ebook or paperback >>

---------------------------

Eearth Culture seeks to augment contemporary culture, with a view to making it sustainable. Since its launch in August 2016 Eearth Culture is becoming increasingly sophisticated as certain elements of contemporary society are considered, and the sustainable alternative is identified and promoted.

One element of society that has come under scrutiny, is the nature of our celebrations. In Australia – where the founder of Eearth Culture lives – there are a number of causes of celebration, including: Christmas, New Year, Easter (religious holidays), Labour day, Queen’s Birthday and so on. Unfortunately, none of these events speaks to environmental sustainability or human contentment.

In order to foster sustainability and happiness, Eearth Culture has adopted and augmented a celebration that is as old as humanity, one that is accessible to everyoneone in the world, and regularly: Eearth Full Moon.

On the night of the full moon, gather together with friends, family, associates or strangers, and observe the Moon rising above the horizon. It's really impressive, because when the Moon is low on the horizon, it is effected by the making it look really big and richly coloured.

A few friends get together to celebrate Eearth New Moon. At the event, they have non-infantile conversations about environmental sustainability and human contentment, and burn Eearth Moon-Fires.

Once the Moon has risen, you might like to follow a small ceremony that celebrates the carbon and hydrological cycles by commemoratively burning an Eearth Moon-Fire (also known as a Selenopyre).

Eearth Moon-Fires are made of sustainably harvested wood, and each weight just a few grams. When the Moon-Fire is burnt, carbon dioxide and water vapour are released into the atmosphere. As the forest from which the wood originated is still growing, it draws in carbon di-oxide and water vapour from the atmosphere to form the material in the growing trees. By burning the Moon-Fire, you are consciously contributing to the carbon and hyrdrological cycle.

When it burns, it releases an aromatic smoke that smells lovely.

The ‘conscious’ effort, is important because it draws attention to the fact that we subconsciously contribute the carbon cycle every day, by burning fossil fuels. The difference between burning fossil fuels and sustainably harvested timber, is that the fossil fuel CO2 does not get drawn back down into the coal mine or oil well from where it came; instead, it stays in the atmosphere, heating the planet, or gets drawn into the sea causing ocean acidification.

The Eearth Moon-Fire Ceremony helps people make the distinction between carbon that cycles, and carbon that doesn't cycle. In this way, each Full Moon becomes a cause for a celebration that fosters dialogue about environmental sustainability.

Read Eearth the novel - a fictionalised introduction to Eearth Culture by Guy Lane.

In the suburbs, both rich and poor, in this country and overseas, lives a people who see the world differently.

Eearth People are guided by a belief in sustainability and happiness, and by those who take the lead.

One such leader has only months to live, and he is on a mission to leave behind as much sustainability and happiness as he can, before he goes.

Eearth is not just a tense drama that explores the conflicting worldviews that stress today’s society: fossils versus photons, and Baby Boomers versus Millennials.

Eearth is also your pathway to a unique personal enlightenment, to Eearth Belief, and your contribution to the Long Future.

Other fiction novels by Guy Lane all have sustainability themes and help showcase some of the ideas that lead to the formation of Eearth. They are are available for free as .pdfs and for sale as paperbacks and ebooks.
