Women’s Social Justice Study Circle

More than ever, the world needs citizens who are prepared to engage with the complex social challenges that impact our communities and advocate for those who are vulnerable to exploitation.  This group offers women a safe, supportive space to learn about social justice issues and become empowered to work for a just and equitable society, where all families and communities can thrive.

Men’s Contemplative Group

Our culture puts a lot of pressure on men to perform, strive, and achieve.  Men get the message that they must be strong and invulnerable. But the spiritual path invites men to go beyond these expectations to cultivate depth and authenticity.  This monthly group provides fellowship and support for men seeking to become their truest and best selves.  

A Spirituality of Engagement

Would you like to deepen your meditation practice and explore how it may help you actively engage in a rapidly-changing world and its many crises? Amidst the turbulence and uncertainty, are you searching for a supportive, inclusive community and a healthy outlet for your heart and mind? This five-session experience will help you weave together your meditation practice and your action in the world.

Community Partners

We’re here for our community, especially during these tough times. At the Earth & Spirit Center, we’re committed to helping as many people as possible learn to better navigate the struggles of the human experience through mindfulness, compassionate action, and deepening their connection to the natural world. Mindfulness meditation has been clinically demonstrated to increase relaxation, relieve stress, reduce anxiety, improve health, and bolster self-esteem - and after the year we've all had, who couldn't use that kind of help? We also work for moving beyond education towards compassionate action to build a more equitable and just society for all. We work for the flourishing of individuals, communities, and our living Earth. We welcome and honor people of all faiths, identities, and backgrounds. We’re here for everyone. We’re here for you and your staff. We want to expand our impact and reach more people through our programs, so we are opening a handful of opportunities in a few of our fall classes for our community partners to enroll with waived registration fees. We would be extremely grateful for donations in support of our mission and participants will be directed to an opportunity to make a gift upon registration, to ensure we can continue reaching across our community with access for all, regardless of financial circumstances.
