WELCOME TO OUR SACRED SPACE

The Earth School is an altar, a sanctuary and a sacred space for learning, grounding, remembering, and expanding into the loving consciousness of Mother Earth.

MOTHER EARTH MEDICINE

We believe that Mother Earth is Medicine. We tend to avenues that enable us to root into trust and remember our sacred bond with the living world through rituals and ceremonies. We honour the teachings of our Elders and search for the essence, the mystic, and the universal to speak up for and to protect the sacred earth medicines. Journey with us into the heart of the medicine wheel, the songlines of intuition, expand into the consciousness of plants, and renew your loving bond with the Spirits of Nature. Join the guardians, the keepers, the tenders, and healers to weave a peacefully connected global culture into being.

WEAVE INTO THE INVISIBLE HARMONY

TO THE LIVING WORLD

We asked the Earth School: ‘Who do you want to be?’ 'First, we need to unschool! We will listen and acknowledge the nature-based traditions that inform us. From there we will follow the threads into the past to find out, who the wisdom keepers are to give thanks to. We will grow more intimate with the circle, to learn how to be in the right relationship with the living world. We will be guided by the land and its seasons.’

WEAVING MEDICINE

Weaving Medicine is a journal where we store the medicine stories that we collect on our journey through the medicine wheel.

TRADITIONAL CODE OF ETHICS

  1. Each morning when you wake up and each evening before sleeping, give thanks for the life, for the good things the Creator has given you and others, and the opportunity to grow a little more each day. Give thanks for yesterday’s thoughts and actions and for the courage and strength to be a better person. 

  2. Respect. Respect means "to feel or show honor or esteem for someone or something; to consider the well-being of, or to treat someone or something with deference or courtesy." Showing respect is a basic law of life.

  3. Treat every person from the tiniest child to the oldest elder with respect at all times.

  4. Special respect should be given to elders, parents, teachers and community leaders.

  5. Don’t make anyone feel "put down" by you; avoid hurting other hearts as you would avoid a deadly poison.

  6. Don’t touch anything that belongs to someone else (especially sacred objects) without permission or an understanding between you. 

  7. Speak in a soft voice, especially when you are with elders, strangers, or others who should be especially respected. 

  8. Never walk between people who are having a conversation. 

  9. Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your mother. Show deep respect for mineral world, the plant world, and the animal world. Do nothing to pollute the air or the soil. If others want to destroy our mother, rise up with wisdom to defend her.

  10. Show deep respect for the beliefs and religions of others. 

  11. Listen with courtesy to what other say, even if you feel that what they are saying is worthless. 

  12. Listen with your heart. 

  13. Respect the wisdom of the people in council. Once you give an idea to a council or a meeting, it no longer belongs to you. 

  14. Be truthful at all times and under all conditions. 

  15. Always treat your guests with honor and consideration. Give your best food, your best blankets, the best part of your house, and your best service to your guests. 

  16. The hurt of one is the hurt of all, the honor of one is the honor of all. 

  17. Receive strangers and outsiders with a loving heart and as members of the human family. 

  18. All the races and tribes in the world are like the different colored flowers of one meadow. All are beautiful. As children of the creator they must all be respected. 

  19. To serve others, to be of some use to family, community, nation, or the world is one of the main purposes for which human beings have been created. 

  20. Listen to and follow the guidance given to your heart. Expect guidance to come in many forms: in prayer, in dreams, in times of quite aloneness, and in the words and deeds of wise elders and friends.
