To heal the Earth

is to heal yourself.


GINHAWA Meteor Shower Witnessing and Overnight Camping, May 2019.

If we wish to be healthy, we need to promote,
protect and foster the health of the Earth,
our common home.

Human well-being is a derivative/result of
the well-being of the Earth and its life-systems.

Any work for healing necessarily includes
the healing of the Earth.

Where do we start, how do we start?

We can connect our small work with the big work that includes the whole community of life.

We are in the process of developing a site that is envisioned to be the


An ECO-RENEWAL Center for personal, social, ecological well-being
Space of witnessing to the beauty and wisdom of the organic way of living
Venue for the wholistic education-training of GINHAWA facilitators


1. Place of Renewal

– respite and nurturance for the body, mind, heart, soul through time tested programs that are spiritually grounded, psychologically sound, culturally affirming

2. Sacred Space

– As a fundamental facet of the renewal experience where people can experience stillness, prayer, meditation, worship

3. Training and Learning Center

– Modular programs for those who wish to grow professionally and personally as Facilitators of Renewal, Healing and Transformation

4. Communion with Creation

– An integral element of the renewal process experienced in a place where nature speaks and refreshes through the sea of clouds, fresh air, glorious sun, and the wonders of the Earth.

We need spaces to awaken us
to the truth of our being,
and remind us of our deep connections.


“Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change. We lack an awareness of our common origin, of our mutual belonging, and of a future to be shared with everyone.

This basic awareness would enable the development of new convictions, attitudes and forms of life. A great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge stands before us, and it will demand that we set out on the long path of renewal.”
