The Earthtribe consists of communities that practice Nature-based spirituality. We gather, usually on a monthly basis, to expand our awareness and compassion through our deeper connection with the fields of Nature. We laugh, sing, drum, chant, and bask in the support of a loving community, including humans and all aspects of the Sacred Web of Life.
Here are two of our major proposals:
- The lions share of our emotional and physical problems stem from our estrangement from nature’s circle of life.
- The most natural movement on the planet is to push out of the box of our usual identity to the deeper place that is our essence, our spiritual DNA. This deeper place calls us to the Great Return of being part of the flow of our planet’s life.
We utilize three major ceremonies – sweat lodges, Vision Quests, and an annual Earthdance – to assist us in this journey to our true identities. We also have integrated into our meditational practices the wisdom of the eight world religions, the guidance of contemporary psychology, and the maps of evolutionary science. In short, we are about an integral practice that expands our awareness of our connection with all creation with the aim of deepening intimacy and compassion. We are a spiritual community of The Center for Creative Resources, Inc. (CCR).

Wisdom from Thomas Banyacya Sr. (1910-1999)
Speaker of the Wolf, Fox and Coyote Clan, Elder of the Hopi Nation
You have been telling the people,
That this is the eleventh hour.
Now, you must go and tell the people,
That THIS is the hour,
And there are things to be considered.
Where are you living? What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in the right relationship?
Where is your water?
Know your garden …
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community,
Be good to each other.
Do not look outside yourself for a leader.
There is a river flowing now very fast,
It is so great and swift.
That there are those who will be afraid,
They will try to hold onto the shore.
They will feel they are being pulled apart,
And will suffer greatly.
Understand that the river knows its’ destination,
The elders say we must let go of the shore.
Push off into the middle of the river,
Keep our eyes open and our heads above water.
And I say; see who is in there with you,
Hold fast to them and celebrate!
At this time in history,
We are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves!
For the moment we do,
Our spiritual growth and journey comes to an end.
The time of the Lone Wolf is over!
Banish the word ‘struggle’ from Your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done,
In a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are all about to go on a journey,
We are the one’s we have been waiting for!
