In the Voices of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit, the Planet Cries Out for Defenders...
In the midst of global fire, earthquake and flood - as species are going extinct every day and the shadow of nuclear war looms - the planet doesn't need another church or religion.
What it needs is a new Order:...a sacred community and movement:
...A movement of communities welcoming all the peoples of Earth: our varied belief systems (or non-belief systems), genders, races, classes, abilities, and nations.
...A deeply spiritual movement, free of religious institutions and grounded in the Wisdom traditions of both East and West, in leading-edge science and indigenous tradition.
...A radically inclusive Order of mystic activists, uniting our energy and intention in one sacred vow:
“I promise to be the best lover and defender of the Earth that I can be.”
This is the focus of Matthew Fox's latest book and initiative, in collaboration with co-author/co-founders Skylar Wilson and Jenifer Listug. Learn more about it.

Welcoming the Rogue Order of the Sacred Earth!
We are happy to announce that the first pod of the Order of the Sacred Earth has taken root in Ashland, OR, in March 2018, with 50 men and women taking the vow at a celebration on Summer Solstice.
They describe their community thus:
While it may be appropriate to consider ourselves a band of Rogues, that is not how we chose our name. On page 43 of the Vision Matthew Fox speaks of making a commitment to and going deep with a specific Bioregion. Apparently the term has been updated to Ecoregion. We call ourselves the Rogue Order of the Sacred Earth becasue we live in the Rogue River Valley which is part of the Rogue/Illinois Valley Level IV Ecoregion. As this website evolves we will share more about our unique Ecoregion and the groups that are working to protect Mother Earth in our very special corner of the world.
