(|) WE ARE KIN, THE ECOLOVERS.

The Earth is our lover and carer. Kin are madly, passionately, and fiercely in love with the exquisite earthly community, and are grateful for this nourishing love each and every day. In order to cultivate a respectful and honoring love for Earth, kin collaborate with the ecosystem and all kin beings who inhabit this planet. Kin garden, compost food, recycle and are ok with being dirty. At all times kin remain aware and connected with the human, nonhuman and more-than-human realms of life. Kin treat all beings with kindness, respect and affection. Kin celebrate kin interdependence and reciprocity.

(||) KIN MAKE LOVE WITH THE EARTH.

Even while alone, kin make love to the Earth, through all kin senses. Kin are aquaphiles, terraphiles, pyrophiles and aerophiles. Kin acknowledge that kin bodies are made up of microscopic collaborators, such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, and archaea. Kin are a feast of other-wise companions: vegetal, animal, mineral, viral. Kin hug, fly above, climb and nest in trees shamelessly, massage the Earth with feet, and caress plants. Kin are skinny dippers, sun worshippers and stargazers. Kin lie on rocks, are pleasured by waterfalls and admire the Earth’s curves often. Kin listen to beings of all colors, genders, sizes, species and creeds. Due to kin love for the Earth, kin are never separated from grace and joy. Makin love is a sacred activity.

(|||) KIN ARE A RAPIDLY GROWING GLOBAL COMMUNITY.

Kin community includes artists, academics, workers, healers, health workers, technologists, environmental activists, nature fetishists, gardeners, business people, therapists, lawyers, peace activists, eco-feminists, scientists, educators, (r)evolutionaries, critters and more-than-human entities from diverse spheres, manifestations and forms of life. As consumers kin aim to buy less and better, more sustainable products. When kin have to shop, kin aim to buy green, organic and local. Kin need to keep kin consumption and environmental impact in check for the sake and benefit of all kin.

(||||) KIN ARE ECOSENSUAL, KINSHIP ACTIVISTS.

Kin aim to decolonize the mountains, waters and skies by any means necessary, for ourselves and future generations. Kin ecological strategies make use of love, joy and seduction to stop the rape, abuse and the poisoning of the Earth. Kin do not condone the use of violence, although kin recognize that some may choose to fight those who destroy, extract and harm the Earth, with civil disobedience, ecoartistic and activist strategies. Kin embrace the (r)evolutionary tactics of art, music, poetry, humor, sex, environmental justice and global peace. Kin know that what kin do to Earth, kin do to kin own bodies. The Earth is a superorganism, kin body is an integral part(icle) of Earth.

(V) BEING KIN IS A SPIRITUAL AND POLITICAL ACTIVITY AND SENSORY ECOLOGY IS AN ART OF LIFE.

Kin can be LGBTQI, heterosexual, asexual, pansexual and/or Other, just as the Earth can be imagined as all genders. For some of kin being ecosexual is kin primary (sexual) identity, whereas for others this is part of other more expanded array of identities. Kin are polymorphous and pollen-amorous. Kin educate people about ecosensuous culture, community and practices. Kin are all part of, not separate from, nature, thus all sex is ecosex. Kin are everywhere and can gain emotional strength from each and every other.

(V|) THE KINSHIP RECONCILE.

Kin promise to love, honor and cherish the Earth, until death brings kin closer together for-ever. Kin are consecrated to the Earth, through this dirt that kin will be-come. United, breathing and makin love as one.
