This chapter draws upon the film Avatar to explore antidotes to the modern human folly of “Ignoring Nature”. It examines the wisdom implied in key quotes, events, and images from the film, and interprets these ideas in light of biosynergy research and theory, ancient myth and folklore, and the authors' own personal experiences. The first section of the chapter emphasizes the benefits of seeing and treating all earth-life and ourselves as kindred spirits in a harmonic universe. The second section focuses on the transformative and healing power of the human-horse connection.
