What we're about

Want to be a part of an active Earth-based spiritual group focused on service, ritual, and fellowship? Please join! Visit our main website for lots more information on our group: www.livingearthcolorado.org. Also here is our New Member Welcome Packet.

Living Earth is an open circle of individuals and families in the south Denver area of Colorado. We share philosophies and practices of Earth-based spirituality and Earth consciousness. We celebrate the seasons, and grow together in a supportive, egalitarian environment. The vast majority of our events are designed to be family-friendly, although many of our members do not have children. We are welcoming and inclusive of all! We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit and a church (reclaiming that word!) for people who enjoy a very different embodiment of what a church can be.

You are invited to attend our public in-person events with the following COVID-19 protocols:
·  We do now require vaccination at our in person events. Here are some resources about the safety and validity of vaccination. Please bring your proof of vaccination; you may be asked to share it with the organizer upon arrival.
·  We require that you (and any guests over age 18) have this liability waiver on file with us before attending anything in person: https://form.jotform.com/211264981148155 and you can optionally upload proof of vaccination there as well.
·  Events will be outdoor-only or online, generally speaking. Indoor events may have very limited capacity.
·  Capacity may be limited, to the comfort level of who is facilitating and the constraints of the venue. If you have reserved a spot but cannot attend, please cancel your RSVP so that someone on the wait-list can attend.
·  No masks are needed outdoors, and masks for indoors may be requested depending on the circumstances or if someone in attendance requests masks.

You are invited to attend our online events with the following protocols
·  If you are unable or unwilling to receive the Covid vaccine or if you are not comfortable being around people outdoors of unknown vaccination status or health, this is a great way to participate!
·  It helps create a sense of togetherness and community if you are willing to keep your camera on.
·  Unlimited capacity and attendance from anywhere. (Updated RSVPs are appreciated)

As you may know Living Earth also offers a private ritual group experience by invitation. About half our events are published in this meetup group and open to the public, and the other half are invitation-only for this private ritual group. For information about joining the private ritual group please see our New Member Welcome Packet.

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!

Online Class: Comparative Ethics (Virtues and Values)

Link visible for attendees

$15.00

What are the things we value, and why? What are the virtues, meaning the behaviors we choose, to hold on to what we value? Ours is a religion without dogma or a hierarchy of control and enforcement, so what creates our moral framework? We will discuss the influences from the Abrahamic overculture, the wider neo-Pagan community, various Eastern traditions, and the collaboratively developed Living Earth virtues. You'll have the opportunity to reflect on your own values and virtues, becoming clearer on how you want to live your life and how we want to live as fellow travelers on this journey together.

Join Living Earth teachers, clergy, and clergy-in-training for a two hour class on this subject.

Teens and adults of all experience levels are welcome to join in this and all classes posted here in the Living Earth meetup. We will be teaching 11 classes (appx two per month) between now and February, 2023. You can attend just one, several, or all classes. We only teach this series once every two years, so if you've wanted to go deeper and learn more, now is your opportunity. All classes will be on Sundays from 6-8pm and the Zoom link will appear after you RSVP.

Tuition: Prepayment of $15 per class is required at time of RSVP.

Online Class: The Triple Soul and Breathwork in Spiritual Practice

Link visible for attendees

$15.00

Many cultures and traditions have recognized the multiple aspects of the human soul and what it means to be fully human. Today we explore the Feri concept of the Triple Soul, the belief that our being is tripartite: The conscious and rational Talking Self, the child-like, wild, and innocent Fetch, and the wise, endless Shining Dove or Higher Self that is connected to the Divine.

To align the Triple Soul, we introduce a variety of breathwork techniques and prayers. We will introduce the Ha Breath, Ha Prayer, 4-fold breath and 4-fold Ha Prayer/alignment, Spiral Breath, and other intentional breathing practices.

You will gain information and skills to feel balanced, contained in yourself, with full ownership and management of your own energy.

Online Class: Meditation Theory and Practice

Link visible for attendees

$15.00

In this class we will explore what meditation is and why it is a beneficial spiritual practice. We will discuss the science of meditation and brain waves. You'll be introduced to several types of meditation including open meditation, focused meditation, meditation with movement and rhythm, and experience examples of each kind. We will also discuss guided meditation: why it's not really meditation and better called "pathworking" or other terms. You'll leave the class with information and readiness to begin adding meditation to your daily practice and to participate more effectively in Living Earth ceremonies that include a meditative component.
