“The W E L L series at Metta Earth is a decadent dive into our collective awakening as leaders, as we serve the planet and its people. It is both nourishing and activating. And most all, it is joyful and inspiring!”
To help actualize this vision, Metta Earth Institute has just completed a two-year long renovation and upgrade process!
This has been an amazing journey beginning with permit applications, consulting, designing, fundraising, and building. Wow…we are overwhelmed with gratitude for so many who have been part of this intensive project! We want to thank and celebrate all of you. And, we want to celebrate all of you who are friends, participants, team, residents, guests, and others who enjoy being here.
Metta Earth now has a new, big, beautiful kitchen with ash and cherry counters from the local land, handicap access with a new bathroom & bedroom, greater fire safety, and fuller water and septic capacity. We’ve also enhanced the main house with big, bright windows; doors; hardwood flooring; a pantry with foods to offer friends and neighbors; a new porch; an edible landscape with new fruit trees and berries; and big stone steps to welcome you!
Donate your time or money to help support Metta Earth’s mission.
At Blackwater Pond
At Blackwater Pond the tossed waters have settled
after a night of rain.
I dip my cupped hands. I drink
a long time. It tastes
like stone, leaves, fire. It falls cold
into my body, waking the bones. I hear them
deep inside me, whispering
oh what is that beautiful thing
that just happened?”
― Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Volume One
Earth Charter Preamble
d We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that in the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny.
