PUBLICATIONS

 

Since the Center’s beginnings in 2000, educators, naturalists, therapists, parents and others with children in their care have gathered in listening circles to consider how we might recover the inner vision of a society in harmony with nature and explore in co-presence our unique roles and voices in creating a reciprocity of care between human beings and the natural world.  In 2011, the Center published a collection of essays by 23 educators who have been part of this process.  Beginning in 2015, we offered our Emergence Series of publications authored by those close to the Center who have carried the work forward in new and promising ways in written form.  In the spirit of a communion of subjects, they have gifted their books to the Center.  All proceeds from book sales will return to the Center in support of its work.
