Aurora Levins Morales

I’m a writer, an artist, a historian, a teacher and mentor.  I’m a also an activist, a healer, a revolutionary.  I tell stories with medicinal powers. Herbalists who collect wild  plants to make medicine call it wildcrafting.   I wildcraft the details of the world, of history, of people’s lives, and concentrate them through art in order to shift consciousness, to change how we think about ourselves, each other and the world.  The stories we tell about our lives shape what we’re able to imagine, and what we can imagine determines what we can do.  My job is to change the stories we tell and help us imagine a world where greed has no power, the earth is cherished and all people get to live safe and satisfying lives.  Because once we truly imagine it, the pull to create it becomes irresistible.
