The Earthlink Fast
Was called the Ball Catch

– Call for Guides 2021

“As long as you catch what you have thrown yourself,
it´s all skill and gain you can do without -;
only when of a sudden, you become the catcher of a ball the eternal co-player
threw towards your center,
an accurate and skilful trajectory in one of these arches
of God´s vast bridge-building:
only then is ability to catch an acquirement -
not yours; but the world’s…”
(Excerpt from Rilke)

Earthlink is a fast for listening, looking and learning with the Earth
in attempt to “catch the ball of the eternal co-player”.
This is an invitation to participate in and as a group of trained Vision-fast
guides from many nations/continents around the globe, in collaboration of a
part online, part nature-based fast, each being in our respective locations over
a period of several days, to simultaneously act as a global net, an ‘Earthlink’
with a shared purpose.
