Quite astonishingly, we don’t have a special word in English for those who would mentor others in studying nature, in finding connections with nature, and in being part of nature.
I want to be able to give credence to those who would do such work. In finding the word, I am simply going back to our roots: to the Proto Indo-European language and keeping it simple.
Bhewtis ~ nature.
With the suffix “ic,” meaning pertaining to, as in the word “medic” which means pertaining to heal.
Bhewtic – pertaining to be of nature. A medic heals. A bhewtic mentors one in and of nature. A high calling. It sounds rather beautiful too, don’t you think?
