Befriending Earth: An Invitation to Earth Literacy

Register Online

July 14-18, 2013 Sunday through Thursday (4 nights)


Our ecological crisis calls for a new way of thinking.  Earth Literacy is that; it is understanding the sacredness and implications of the universe story as it is told through science. Through playful yet deeply reflective experiences, based on the work of Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme, and David Suzuki, we rediscover our inherent relationship and inextricable connection with Earth. We will explore spiritual connections, sustainable living, and right relationships for ourselves and our communities.

“Without love for Earth there is no place for us in heaven.” – Aymara oral tradition.
