Relationship & the Environment

Restoring Community

We are prisoners of a delusion….Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein

Constructs, the way we understand the world, are often formed by separation; which, can create a disconnect from our relationship-based, natural way of being. The concept of sustainability to preserve the Earth/environment is much more than minimalism versus consumerism.

As the Earth is consumed, the people are also being consumed with increasing decline of health, wellbeing, and social-economic equity and equality. Our recovery from delusion involves re-establishing an healthy, restorative relationship with our inner-self, community, and the environment. It is critical that we develop a balanced, sustainable way of living for the renewal of the planet and the continued evolution of life.

The Conservatory integrates heart-centered relationship, contemplative inquiry, ecology, spiritual-consciousness studies, and visioning with art, science, technology, activism/stewardship, and community service for sustainable, social transformation. This approach creates a fundamental shift in the way of we see and experience the world for a more expanded understanding of our relationships (self, others, and the Earth).

Our contemplative studies also include the relationship between physical matter and nonphysical energetic-consciousness. This micro level of inquiry offers a greater awareness of the natural dynamics affecting our quality of life, health and wellbeing, extended human capacities, and societal transformation. Aligning our awareness, thoughts, and actions; we can work toward healing the chronic stress, related health conditions, emotional wounding/trauma, social issues, and environmental challenges.
