Established in 2003
Inspiring Consciousness for Human Responsibility to The Earth
Since its inception in 2003, the Centre for Earth and Spirit Society has been offering life-affirming programs that inspire consciousness for the human responsibility to the Earth. Our offerings focus on embodied eco-spirituality, eco-psychology and First Nations traditional ecological knowledge. We have also offered hands-on courses in permaculture, ecology and restoration.
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.
Our Mission Statement
The Centre for Earth and Spirit Society is a charitable organization offering sacred spaces for cultivating meaningful conversation, contemplation, and community. Through life affirming action, we co-create opportunities to deepen relationships and reciprocity with the Earth and all beings.
