"Speak to the Earth and it will teach you"
The Earth’s echo lives in each one of us. Some of us are very attuned to recognizing it, and others hear it like a distant drummer, unclear of its source. We each innately know the elements, the cycles, the animal natures, and the plant characteristics, and somewhere in us, we feel how our bodies, emotions and spirits resonate with those echoes. There was a time when everything we knew came from observing the Earth and her beings: the way we discovered movement, expression, emotion, ritural, love and communication. All were once drawn from the fascination of the wild. In the relational dance between humanity and the more than human world, we moved inside of our own true nature. That yearning lives in us still. It is in listening to, and becoming this echo, that we become more balanced, healthy, open, free, and naturally loving and joyful. We remember that all life is sacred.
Spiritual Retreats & Wilderness Journeys
In spending quiet, reflective hours in the company of Nature, through these spiritual retreats and wilderness journeys; we learn to echo Earth, and a deep sense of harmony begins once again, to reverberate in our souls.
In this day and age of crazy, stress-filled, fast paced lives, the sanctuary of wild places offers us an opportunity for a peace and sanity not easily found elsewhere. In the natural world things make sense. In the world of the city, we are challenged to know and understand and have compassion for ourselves, when the world around us is manmade, unknown, confusing and harsh. We need more opportunities to see our truest qualities...indeed our essence reflected in the world around us....the natural world offers that willingly, within spiritual retreats and wilderness journeys.
In 2008 in response to the turnings of life and death and, a long held vision, a portion of the land was then resident of; Sacred Earth Foundation became a Conservation Burial Ground...making a place of green burials...ecologically sound "old" ways of burying loved ones that respect earth and body.

"And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, and a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and joyful, by which we arrive at the ground at our feet, and learn to be at home." Wendell Berry, "The Unforeseen Wilderness"
