EARTHLANDS CONNECTS PERSONAL AND PLANETARY CONCERNS IN ORDER TO PROMOTE THE WELL-BEING OF BOTH.
An Earth-based education center for people of all ages and walks of life, Earthlands hosts educational and transformational programs at the Earthlands Program Center. It also houses University of the Wild, an alternative higher education option, and the Earthlands Freedom School, an alternative primary, secondary, and higher education option for all ages, currently in development.
The Earthlands Center will be used and operated by both alternative and mainstream higher education institutions and community-centered organizations. The Earthlands Collective will guide the day-to-day operation of the Center according to values designed to cultivate a global ecological citizenry with an eco-centric worldview. The Center will become totally green where organic permaculture practices and sustainable living initiatives are central to the community and the program of study.
Since it was founded in 1993, Earthlands has followed the twin Paths of 1) Personal Transformation and 2) Regenerative Ecological Living. Earthlands programs are designed to integrate ecological, social, spiritual, economic, and emotional elements in order to empower everyone to live creatively and consciously with all life on Earth. The Earthlands Collective Partners are excited to continue and expand the Earthlands legacy by offering programs in the following 7 areas:
Earthlands provides workshops in renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, and green building practices. We incubate eco-centered innovations and support the development and implementation of practical, community-based solutions for health and sustainability.
EDUCATION TO CHANGE THE WORLD
Earthlands is a living-learning center where humans learn through direct engagement with all that life has to offer. Education at Earthlands is learner-centered, self-directed, mentored, experiential and transformational. We offer professional development for schools and individuals both on- and off-site. Living and Learning is happening at Earthlands now. Please contact us to explore the many ways to get involved.
Recognizing that Art and Life go hand-in-hand, we encourage and support the role of Art in every day life. Earthlands is a place for Artists (both aspiring and established) to explore their passions and discover new ones, study various techniques, and enjoy the power of creation.
Earthlands invites Peacekeeper facilitators and students to study, develop, and promote peace work in their lives, homes, schools, organizations and communities. By maintaining Peace as an official discipline, we have the opportunity to transform suffering and welcome Peace as a way of life on Earth.
HEALING AND TRANSFORMATION
Today, the entire world recognizes the need for healing. As we shed a confused culture that propagates abuse and cruelty, humans are embracing a new/old culture centered around compassion, kindness, and interconnection. “Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”
Young people hold the insight, courage, and love necessary to lead humanity to harmony. Earthlands provides the space and freedom for young people to become their most authentic selves and share their gifts with the world.
BE THE CHANGE
Earthlands welcomes YOU! Earthlands is a place of sanctuary, refuge, and innovation where we can all become and implement the changes we wish to see in the world. We are actively seeking program partners and facilitators. Please contact us to explore the many ways to get involved.
