A coyote is howling at night in the gran sabana
So what is #Moonstruck...?
Once a month, on the day of the full moon, we disconnect from Big Tech for 24 hours to reconnect with our communities, nature, and ourselves. We log out of social media, turn off our phones, refrain from shopping online, and google nothing. For one day, stop feeding Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook the precious data they need to fuel their perfect consumerist machines.
On Moonday, we regain resilience, refusing to rely on Big Tech’s tools to connect with friends or be entertained. Instead, explore the quiet moments, the solitary introspection, the painful boredom, where we rediscover the boundless creativity and madness of our minds.
So put down your phone for 24 hours. Close your laptop. Power off. Collectively, we walk through the world with our heads up, witnessing the people and trees and colors and lights, pulled from our individualist tunnel vision and thrown into the fury.
The next full moon is:
The Full Cold Moon in December was named by Native American cultures for the chilly temperatures and long, dark winter nights.
Some Native American tribes called it the Long Nights Moon because it closely coincides with the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year.
Remember you are not alone on this ancient land — we are interconnected in a web of life that has preceded this moment for millions of years. As long as the full moon lives, so will this digi-age tradition.
For 24 hours, we dance, howl and run, sit, stare, and think. On Moonday, we live!
#moonstruck was inspired by our campaign against Big Tech, #OCCUPYSILICONVALLEY. Even one day away from their screens, tech, and constant distractions moved people enough to reach out with their personal experience.
