Sustainability, Health, & Wellbeing

“Culture is beyond definition and limitation – a concept or a box. It is the living, evolving soul of the people.”

The Nature Studies Conservatory (501c3 non-profit) and the Culture of Sustainability (COS) Outreach were established to help facilitate the recovery of our planet and local-global communities. The Conservatory offers nature retreat courses for personal development. The COS Outreach participates in community collaborations and provides focus group, visioning retreats. The focus groups are held in eco-retreat settings to develop innovative strategies for sustainable evolution in relationship with each other and the Earth. We assist in restoring the environment and provide community education as well as a the free/donation-based, Pay-it-Forward Program. These resources serve individuals, families, and organizations. Our work helps people to navigate challenges, increase inner peace and balance, and optimize overall health and wellbeing.

The Earth Mother Council was created to help balance the challenges that affect our personal-collective healing, growth, development, and evolution. The online groupwork and ceremonies offer a safe and supportive environment to restore the mind, body, and spirit with resources and tools for healing heart-soul wounding and ancestral-transgenerational-personal trauma, solving problem, inspiring purpose, and full creative expression. The ancestral-indigenous wisdom of our elders provide powerful resources to release patterns that create imbalance and strengthen inner relationship as well as relationships with others and the Earth.

The Women’s Collective for Self-Healing is a local and online community that provides resources for creating personal, family, community, and planetary restoration and wellbeing. The Collective offers information and discussion for self-discovery and personal development. Enriching topics include eco-spiritual-conscious awareness, healthy eating and lifestyle, and mind-body-soul rejuvenating practices. In November 2015, we launched an online program to increase the accessibility of free preventive and restorative services. In March 2019, we began our first class series in Ojai, CA; Women’s Health and Wellbeing, Self-Practice: Creating Personal Sanctuary. Each month, we have a new topic that bridges with our online group events.

Contact us for more information and to get involved! We would like to hear about your projects and to discuss working together for a common goal of local-global sustainability.
