Earth Family is a creative non-profit.

With art and beauty we communicate our deep relationship to earth + ourselves.

Our projects speak for the voice-less and touch upon social taboos to affect positive change.


by Marisa Papen

While adrift in this spiritual sea
In this quantum of time
That we call now and today
The suppressed secret to our salvation was set to flame

Oh Holy Sun
Why did we hide in the shade?

Even though your heartbeat pulses symphonically with ours
And we are blessed by Earth's reciprocal green and blue chorus
We kept running
Fast and un-paced
Missing the beat of our fate

But then suddenly
You slowed us down
You gave us a break
And lives have been given
for a cause that’s yet to be known

But I trust
That you are teaching us to fly with synchronicity
That we will finally understand and maybe even see
That you are a star and I am a star
That all beings in this biosphere are baptized by Earth
That we are significant in our insignificance
That this planet is one, and that borders are plastered wounds
That we are family, and not only people or people-like species
But that every organism and plant and tree
Belong to Earth Family
