Upcoming Retreats / Programs

We have, in a sense, a new revelatory experience of the Divine through our present understanding of an unfolding universe, a cosmogenesis rather than a cosmos.

 Eco-Zoic,  a phrase coined by Thomas means 'House of Life,' and refers to the emerging geological era of Earth where we go forward as mutually enhancing members of our Earth Community.

We consider the Eco-zoic to be an emerging Era of Wisdom, and the  focus of our training will be on the deepening of our collective wisdom. See our page Thomas Berry/Eco-Zoic Training Program.
