We are currently in the midst of a scientific and spiritual revolution urged forward by the need to address our ecological crisis. Earth Is `Ohana was created in service to liberating and translating knowledge that is necessary for the healing of our `aina (the land). This hands -on curriculum utilizes the strength of group dialogue, personal reflection and honoring of place as a path towards reconnecting to our biosphere and the sacred. Earth Is `Ohana is a blend of ecology, earth based spirituality and academia.
