Eco-Spiritual Educational Sanctuary

Becoming more ecologically sustainable in our practices is important to us, and we greatly appreciate every action you can take to assist us. We welcome your comments and suggestions on our feedback form. If you are interested in supporting one of our "Green Dream" projects, contact us here.

The Living Centre is committed to ecological practices that maintain and restore the health of natural ecosystems, local economies and the well being of our apprentices, students and guests. We strive to ensure that we step lightly on the earth and that our operations are ecologically sustainable. We are committed to reducing the burdens we place on living systems and are making continual progress towards ecological sustainability (a "closed loop system" of cyclical material flow) and are committed to achieve this goal within a generation.

What We Do:

  • Hiring locally is our priority.
  • Support community organizations and schools.
  • Provide a rideshare board on our facebook to help reduce vehicle traffic.
  • Offer a number of scholarships, as well as discounts, for students.
  • Host evening events open to the community.
