Church of Earth is a multi-faceted art project and spiritual practice devoted to remembering & cultivating a deep, embodied human relationship with the Earth. Among other things, this work is an offering and invitation to engage with themes of wildness, responsibility, healing, art as prayer, being human, and coming home.
in other words, church of earth is an understanding of the earth as sacred a belief in and prayer for healing a wild river, the sun warming your skin, a chrysalis, the smell of juniper, your heart pumping blood a remembrance and reconciliation a homecoming an experiment a conversation starter a gathering of resources for reconnecting to our own wild nature a study of religion, apocalypse, and the time we are living in a cultivation of ritual practices for honoring the earth a series of community art projects and events a space to heal our relationships with the earth, ourselves, and each other.
some things that we do:
“And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, 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.”
