Reconnect 3: Courageous Ekostories

This week’s Reconnect focuses on Ekostories with protagonists who demonstrate courage in non-traditional ways. By expanding their thinking, standing by their principles, and doing things their own way, each of them became emotionally healthier and mentally stronger.  By working on becoming internally sustainable and resilient, they became natural leaders and role models who are capable of igniting the fires of change in the world they live in.

Tenar from The Tombs of Atuan breaks free of dogma to choose a life of uncertain freedom over assured sterility; her choice brought about the possibility of peace and reconciliation to the world of Earthsea. By not seeking fame or recognition, Elzéard Bouffier is able to restore both nature and culture while deriving joy and fulfillment from his work in The Man Who Planted Trees. Finally, Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender becomes a global leader for change by practicing what he preaches, rooting his actions in a moral code based on non-violence, empathy, and compassion.
