The focal points of EarthSong’s programs are literacy, spirituality and ethics.
- to raise awareness around the emerging new cosmology and the growing communion between the various aspects of human knowledge and endeavour in the light of this cosmology
- to develop new ways of honouring and celebrating the sacredness of all creation
- to promote a new ethical structure that recognizes and protects the integrity of all life forms on planet Earth.
These aims are implemented through an educational and experiential approach.
Wherever possible, the aims of the project will be achieved in collaboration with other groups and organizations with similar visions, hence the programs are offered in a range of venues and often in response to invitations.
EarthSong programs can be adapted to suit the requests and interests of a particular group.
Topics could include:
- Exploring the New Cosmology and the story of the evolving universe
- Ecological Spirituality as ground for sustainable living
- Ecological Conversion and the role of the human in the modern world
- Global Justice and issues of access to and stewardship of Earth’s resources
Some formats that can be offered for schools, parishes and community groups are:
Study Groups: 5-8 people reading and discussing books, articles or viewing videos on a regular basis. The Project has a small lending library and multiple copies of some books are available for study groups.
Presentations: one off sessions on current themes.
Workshops: one day or an afternoon and evening.
Extended Learning Modules: as an educational project, EarthSong has a particular interest in working with teachers, preferably in residential situations or over a series of sessions
Residential programs offer an enhanced learning experience.
Time for relaxed conversation and for browsing an extensive resource collection re-enforces the formal sessions.
Each program is offered in a setting of natural beauty giving scope for outdoor ritual, reflection and activities.
