I end with in an invitation to a common adventure: Finding home will be our adventure and on the way home we will find home in each other. We will find home in the connection to our longings and dreams. We will find home in the sense of truth and trust and mutual sup- port that we will develop between each other. We will find home in traveling as pilgrims together, becoming inti- mate with the earth that holds us all. We will find home while serving the emergence of other communi- ties around the world. Finding home will be our adventure. It might take a while. It might be sooner than you think. We all come from a homeland. We all look for a home to land. They may not be the same place. Our homeland will ask us to serve its healing. The home in which we will land will ask to heal us. Through our healing we will heal our homeland. Healing will be our adventure. Healing will connect us to the whole. We will heal the heart of humanity. We will heal our sexuality. We will heal capital- ism, colonialism, racism, nationalism, and all the other “isms”. We will dedicate ourselves to healing collective trauma. Finding home will be our adventure and we will find home as soon as we stop looking for home just for ourselves and start looking for a home for a new culture; saying readily: Here we are. EMMA SHAM-BA AYALON was born in Israel and holds a vision of establishing a peace research village in the Middle East inspired by the healing biotope “Tamera” in Portugal. Emma came to Tamera for the first time in 2002 and since then has held peace pilgrimages, community courses, and study groups. Emma is a Rabbi, an artist, a poet, and a committed peace worker. 116 W W W .T I K K U N . O R G WINTER 2019
