Greetings all, First I wish to congratulate Annalisa and Ramses on this new project idea. It marries two of my favorite topics my love of Nature and all things anomalous, parapsychology and more ( all the other stuff in the SSE bucket, Society for Scientific Exploration) Having been a professor of environmental science and now teaching at the Rhine things like the power of Nature and evoking the Divine, I’m very happy to have joined the Climate Action group, and specifically, Michael Daw’s “Subtle Activism” group based on the book with the same title by David Nicol.
