Ahimsa, the resting cow

Now on display at Landgoed de Reehorst in Driebergen until end of September. 

‘Ahimsa, the resting cow’ is travelling  through the Netherlands to honor and thank the cow for giving so generously for centuries. At the same time she refers to Mother Earth.

Meaning Ahimsa (in short); nonviolence and reverence for all life. Showing peace and awe for all sentient beings.

Ahimsa, wants to contribute to a new era, a loving and harmonieus way of living and working together. A symbiosis between plant, animal, mankind and earth. By giving back to the land and the animals and to each other, by sharing, we will discover that there is a joy hidden within.

Everyone is welcome in her cirkel. The cow invites us to come together, to find the stillness within ourselves. We all have a heart and know deep down what truly is, without answering out loud. When we regain an eye for ourselves and all that lives on this wondrous planet we rediscover that everyone contributes something valuable.

My gratitude goes out to my buddy Dirk-Jan Schrander (guitar builder/artist) who can do magic with steel, it was a joy working with him on the cow sculpture.🤍Working together

🤍Song for Ahimsa

After Amsterdam -Blijburg, -Westerpark, -Fruittuin van West, Urtica de Vijfsprong, ‘Ahimsa, the resting cow’ is now a guest at Landgoed de Reehorst in cooperation with Demeter and Antropia. It is inspiring how bio dynamic farmers serve the animals and the land. To experience in a joyful way how we can once again be part of a healthy and fertile cycle around farm animals, landscape, nature of which we are all part of.

You can follow the journey of Ahimsa on facebook or Instagram: Jantien Mook, Ode to the Wilderness.

Thank you for the heartwarming messages we receive💚
