Definition:

A reframing of humanity from being, and viewing itself as, a force that is extractive to one that is regenerative and energizing.

This can be thought of as a new concept, or as a return to and older view of ourselves that existed before we intellectually separated humans from other species.

A ghoma elevates beyond the contemporary environmental shift that ask us to stop viewing the earth as “a thing to be extracted from” and to view it as “a thing to be protected”—recognizing that both views are innately objectifying. Ghomas and Ghomanidad exists as part of the earth and can contribute positively and integrally to it.

Origin: Theo Gibbs, Field Study #010 California, 2016

Ghomon (Proto Indo European) literally meaning earthling, or of the earth + humanidad (Spanish) Meaning Humanity
