Vision


We understand that we are on a necessary spiritual journey toward right relationship with the Earth.

We recognize that we are not alone in seeking this relationship. Others stand with us, and together we  are strong.

We support one another in our growth toward wisdom and resolve, knowing that every local action has global effects.

We ally with like-minded communities to support the vulnerable, and evolve a resilient and sustainable way of living in our shared world.
