Contemplative Practices and the Creative Arts
EarthSong Division fosters sustainability in our personal lives, the lives of our children, and with our natural environment whether in an urban, suburban, or rural setting. Projects include:
EarthSong Farm & Retreat Center: nestled in the western mountains of Virginia, this nature and wildlife sanctuary is the sight of self-awareness, interpersonal development, Mindfulness, and farming retreats. It also develops bio-dyamic commercial enterprises to heal the land and develop entreprenuers.
Mindfulness in Education: programs are held in schools, health care, and youth facilities for youth and youth workers. These programs teach skills in focusing, self-regulation and awareness to increase academic potential, improve classroom and group management, and to foster a greater sense of self as a part of the broader environment whether humanity or nature.
EarthSong Division also partners with other agencies and divisions of CCDI such as the Urban Arts Center (UAC) in an effort to support all youth before, during, and after crisis's that they may encounter. Using the creative arts and contemplative practices, these tools are used to apply principals of Interpersonal Development.
