What we're about

Want to be a part of an active Earth-based spiritual group focused on service, worship, and fellowship? Please join! Visit our main website for lots more information on our group: http://www.livingearthcolorado.org and be sure to check out the About Us page there!

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!

Living Earth's mission is to be an evolving, accessible, positive spiritual community in Denver. To do this, we offer ceremony on the lunar and solar calendars. We also host many other events such as social events and workshops each year. There is usually at least one thing happening each week or two!

We meet in public parks when the weather is nice and at a home in Denver during winter and inclement weather. We have various camping events. Every year we have special places we return to, such as Daniels Park, Sand Creek Park, Belleview, Cook Creek, Babi Yar, Dupont Open Space and more. Looking for information about Beltania, our Beltane Spring Festival and Music Fest held every May? You can find information by joining this group, or go to our main Beltania website, http://www.beltania.org . It is an open and public Beltane retreat.

Summer Solstice Firewalking and Camping

Needs a location

A beautiful weekend of relaxed, family friendly camping under a new moon and starry skies. A Living Earth tradition for over a decade, this will now be the fourth time our annual Litha Campout has included fire walking. Preparations for firewalking begins Saturday at solar noon, burning the bonfire all day as we ready ourselves to walk across hot coals, or support others as they attempt this personal challenge. Whether you firewalk or not, this will once again be a life changing experience of powerful transformation. All ages event; families and SO's and friends welcome. No minors can fire walk without parent approval and supervision. We'll have a waiver to sign for anyone who wants to do more than just watch. Learn primitive firestarting methods. Connect with Nature and Spirit, as well as new friends and old. Bring your own tent and camping equipment, water, camp chair and food. Dress for any weather. Drums and rattles are a plus but not necessary. A composting toilet will be available. Location: TBD but very likely on private forested land about 2 hr south of Denver near Rye, CO (Joy is under contract to purchase the property and will confirm this after the real estate deal is closed) This is a drug free event. Light, responsible alcohol enjoyment is welcomed when we are not in ceremony. A fee of $40 per person or $50 for families to offset the expenses incurred with this event and to support Living Earth.
