                                 Sacred Universe



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.

A beautiful thing, though simple in its immediate presence, always gives us a sense of depth, below depth, almost an innocent wild vertigo as one falls through its levels. Frederick Turner

 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.
