Releasing our Nature
Nature as the Path
We conceive nature not as a destination, nor through the illusion of a perfect paradise that we construct through culture, but as a path that leads us to a higher form of understanding and connects us with our values and qualities. Understanding it, respecting it, and reconnecting with it grant us opportunities for personal and collective growth. It opens us up to dive deeper into ourselves and to embrace collaboration.
Harmony and Reciprocity
What we do for the animals we save from a torturous death, we do for ourselves. The emotions we connect with by being part of the project give us the opportunity to develop or expand our most human values, such as empathy, care, collaboration, and giving.
Community and Sanctuary
The shelter we provide for the animals is, at the same time, our own refuge, since we can embody the values that can save this world. This bond takes the form of a community that sustains us and allows us to grow.
The world supports us
Primitivo is our impulse to connect with nature through respect, care, and harmony; to understand the wisdom that exists in it and within ourselves. Primitivo is the desire to reclaim communities where values and efforts are shared. Primitivo means returning to the origin, primary, original, linked to our essence, pure, and free (stripped) from the influence of society, culture, and the system. Primitivo is the type of bond we propose to reestablish with nature and all beings.
