The Earth as a lover, not a mother


At Learning to Fly with Tangled wings, we believe that all life is intrinsically connected by & to the uniting concept & energy of nature. We are individual & varying expressions of that underlying unity & sameness. 

By developing our understandings of the natural world, we are able to better learn how to live in sync with it & as part of it, instead of imposing upon it. To study & co-exist with & as part of nature is our practice of ecosex. We prioritize this relationship by respecting & caring for our environment in a way that offers gratitude for the many resources it offers us. Through this practice, we create a sustainable relationship with the earth to facilitate the health & wellbeing of our natural world & as an extension of that, the health & well-being of ourselves.

We believe in treating nature, including ourselves & each other, with the utmost love & respect. Where as a mother may tolerate bad behavior out of love for a child, the earth does not & it must be treated with care in order to continue to provide the resources we require to live on this planet. As an extension of nature, we strive to create a sustainable relationship with our regional ecologies as we co-exist with our environment through sustainable living practices & celebrate the earth through its many sensual offerings. That’s what ecosexuality means, to us. 


Awareness is the first step in action

There is no planet B

Greenhouse gases

Change is an inevitable part of life. However, the rate at which our planet is changing has been rapidly accelerated by our environmentally negligent activities. As a result, temperatures are rising, precipitation patterns are changing, & we are experiencing more extreme climate events such as drought & hurricanes. Many of these changes are linked to the rising levels of carbon dioxide & greenhouse gas in our atmosphere, caused by human activities. 

Once emitted, greenhouse gases may stay in our atmosphere for tens to hundreds of years, effecting the present & future populations that call our lands, seas, & sky home. As emissions increase, they build up in the atmosphere & warm the planet. 

Recent studies show the total warming effect of greenhouse gases from human activities between 1990 to 2019 increased by 45%, while the warming effect of carbon dioxide alone increased by 36%. Transportation & electricity generation account for the majority of emissions.


Hi, I’m Larissa. My hope is to discuss my own understanding, attempts & insights as it relates to my practice while promoting environmental conservation through ecosexual writing, design & photography. 

The Duality of Ahimsa

As an extension of nature, we believe in self-care.
