The Live Earth Trust
Shando is the founder and director of the Live Earth Trust and Emma is a trustee.
The Live Earth Trust exists to research, develop and implement sustainable social patterning that is based in the recognition of the biological / physical interconnectedness of all things on this planet.
After lengthy research into the human condition and the unsustainable nature of current human society, in particular western society, we discovered that all human difficulties arise from the misperception that we as individuals and as a species are in some way separate from nature and the physical world from which we have emerged and which we share with all the other species.
We have taken this insight and applied it to the development of sustainable human society. From this point has come spiralling out, beautiful natural organic social patterns and models with all the interconnectedness and modularity to regenerate a sustainable integrated society that is integrated not only with itself but also with Nature and the Planet.
The Live Earth Trust works with Landownership for nature and buys land to give it back to the Earth. It is a body that holds the land and operates the Sacred Land Scheme to enable it buy more land for re-wilding and for giving back to Mother Earth. It has a site in the Preseli hills in wales. We call it the Eartheart.

The Eartheart is sacred land
An Eartheart is a piece of land where local people gather to celebrate and express their connectedness, and to rewild their inner selves.
It is a place for people to explore and create what is ‘sacred’ to them and to give this to the landscape.
It is cooperatively owned and managed by all involved and is collectively given back to the Earth for ever.
The Eartheart is a seed in the landscape, we are planting a seed of a vision for the unfolding of sacred land.A seed of a vision coming from the landscape, a community sacred site, a reservation for exiled/ wild plants, exiled/ wild people, welcoming them home to the land, to connection.
A place for people to come and dream with the seed, with the vision of a new culture born of the land.
The Eartheart is nestled just underneath the ‘Dragons Back’ , which is the ridge of bluestones where the inner ring of Stonehenge came from.
The land is owned by the Live Earth Trust and is held in trust for the Earth. The charity was set up to buy land and give it back to the Earth.
The vision of Live Earth is to give back land to the Earth, to create wild places, to create community sacred gathering sites, to provide an abundance of wild food and medicines, to create a reservation for exiled wild plants and trees and flowers. To create a place for people exiled from the wild land. To come together and listen to the land, to dream with the land, to open their hearts to the truth of connection.
We belong to the Earth, the Earth cannot belong to us.
We have the right to be indigenous people, First Planet Natives living closely with the land,free from fences and walls.
The first Eartheart has been seeded, a seed of truth in the landscape. As that truth unfolds and flowers into a wild land, a tribal land for First Planet Natives/People, the seeds in our hearts, of the truth of connection to Earth and Spirit will unfold and flower awakening our indigenous souls and becoming native once again to our true selves and the Earthmother.
The Eartheart is a place of stillness, healing, dreaming and of deep listening. A place to heal with the land and dream with the land. It is a place of love and recognition of ‘all our relations’ a place to commune in peace with the Earth, the plants and trees and rocks.
A place to feel our own roots, of belonging, and the unfolding of the Eartheart inside of us.
We are dreaming of coming back home to the wild land, our wild natures and consciousness, to dance to living energy of which we are all a part , to spirit ,to love.
The Eartheart can never be sold or developed as it is not owned by anybody, rather we all own it together and together have given it back to the Earth.
Already on site we have a start up forest garden, a compost loo, a standing stone, a medicine wheel , and some years ago a Cherokee medicine bundle was buried there with full blessing.
This year we hope to fence off the side walls and plant them up with strong major flowering plants and herbs to create the start of an insect and bee resource. There will also be a tipi near the medicine wheel for small gatherings and retreats.
Further up we will create an area for a Sacred Grove which is a circle of one of each of the original trees of these islands. Inside that there will be a Sweet Cauldron which is an ellipse of the native half way trees lie hawthorn, broom and elder etc.
In small sheltered areas we hope to put shelters and platforms for retreats or star gazing.
The site is conservation grazed by two rescue mountain ponies from a wild herd.
A place to open and honour connection and inner wildness,for Celebration, Ceremony, Retreat, Connection, Dreaming.

The Sacred Land Scheme
We have in place the sacred land scheme which enables those of you who feel this vision to be their own, who would like to ensure the land is held in trust and who want to give it back to the Earth. This will generate the money to buy more land and put Earthearts in every community.
The Sacred land scheme is for people who want to buy the earth back for itself. For people who want to allow the unfolding of the wilderness, the natural dream of the earth.
To recreate common land, to facilitate the process of rewilding so the earth owns itself.
To undo legal land ownership. Landownership is a conceptual grid which humankind has put on the earth. In order to undo this we need to reverse the process, multiple ownership does this. Creates common land, land which is given back to the Earth.
It is a cascade process, buying land, subdividing it and selling it to practically dissolve land ownership and giving back to the Earth, at the same time buying more land to repeat the process…buy land, re-wild it, give it back to the Earth, subdivide it, sell plots, buy more land, re-wild it, etc etc
A truthful Earth – centred covenant which will be put in the deed, put in the legal framework to cancel out all legal nonsense of ownership.
