Bombilore’s manifesto…

What are the stories we are telling ourselves about our potential? About our society? About the world? What story do we want to tell? How do we rewrite oppressive, fear-based, old-world, one-dimensional, exclusionary narratives?

At Bombilore, we join The Quest. We keep humble. We stay curious. We find stories where the good, juicy, irreverent, happy stuff is. We find the progressive, ingenious, clever, brave stories. We believe our thoughts are magnificently powerful!

But we’re not afraid to contemplate the heaviness, the dark, the shadows. We allow the ebb and flow of what is and what can be. We question and expose the bullshittery. We shine floodlights on the unacceptable. We ask to speak to the manager. We recognize that we ARE the managers!

We refuse to eat fake vegetables, fake news and phony assumptions. We find out what’s good for us. We don’t tell others what’s good for them. We ask how we can help instead. We bow down to the littlest, quietest, most forgiving beings. We silence the screaming signage. The ones specifically designed to disempower and disenfranchise us. We refuse to have our spirits strip-searched.

At Bombilore, we collectively rewrite the Big Story. We focus on the questions, deem them more important than the answers we may (or may not) find. We step out of blame and into appreciation.  We make this story inclusive, positive, and solution-focused. We honor all peoples, traditions, and our Earth.

We believe in the basic but radical idea that there is no deficit- spiritual, emotional, or physical. There is only a deficit of Love and Deep Honesty. We believe that when anything- a society or forest or body of water or marriage or system- is approached thoughtfully, with respect to every member of its pack, then there is more than enough for everyone, at all times, in all ways and forever.

Bombilore invites you to Breath Deep. Imagine that all is solvable. Imagine a brighter story is being born. Embrace the pain folded into transformation. 
Stand with astounding reverence.

Help us sweeten and deepen the world.
Come share some sugar!
