Making the world a better place through
Nurturing Earth Stewardship | Life-changing Programs | Contemplative Journeys
Reconnecting people to nature fosters a sense of peace and connectedness with each other and the natural world. Weaving storytelling, community conversations, and engaging in our collective wisdom, we remember that we are not separate from – but connected to – the earth and to all of humanity.
With each passing year, we reflect upon where we have traveled from and where we are going, listening deeply to all who have followed in our footprints. In the company of our vibrant band of board members, advisors, and volunteers, we have our collective ear to the ground, listening to the emerging needs of our community.
Addressing the clarion call, we turn our eye to developing rich new programs and fruitful experiences that uplift our community, and inspire participation and healing.
John T Shields: His Legacy Lives On
Past Board Chair, Earth & Spirit
As John gently left on his return to his beloved cosmos, he revealed a world that was a little better, a little kinder. He inspired curiosity and thoughtfulness and evoked within everyone he met, a sense of possibility and grace. His imagination was limitless as was his generosity of spirit. He blazed a trail in death as he did in life, becoming one of the first to participate in the process for medical assistance in dying. John was also one of the first to participate in Earth & Spirit’s Living Well, Dying Well – the very program he helped to design.
It is here that he planted his heart and soul since 2006 with the hope that all he planted would continue to flourish long after his passing, igniting an enduring ripple effect.
