Order of the Sacred Earth: An Intergenerational Vision of Love and Action


"The Order of the Sacred Earth not only calls us home to our true nature as Earth, but also offers us invaluable guidance and company on the way."  

~~Joanna Macy

"The creation of The Order of the Sacred Earth is a magnificent step forward for humanity. What we need now are sacred activists willing to come together and live conscious sacred lives to preserve the earth and humanity. I am honored to celebrate and join this great adventure."

~~Andrew Harvey

“I promise to be the best lover and defender of Mother Earth that I can be.”

Might this sacred pledge required of those who join the Order of the Sacred Earth save humanity and our Earth Mother? It is surely worth a try....

f we are to hold any hope of a positive outcome to the disaster we have wrought, it surely begins with an expression of our human love for and commitment to the Sacred Earth we now so badly abuse. Our failure to contribute to Earth’s healing might well bring an end to Earth’s distinctive contribution to Creation’s journey. The ill-conceived solutions of geoengineers compound our past arrogance and may only hasten Earth’s transformation into a dead rock.

Ultimately, other planets may bring forth carbon-based life that evolves to create conditions essential to more complex and able organisms— perhaps even human-like species. Perhaps one among them will acquire greater wisdom and avoid our failure of arrogance.

Yet, if any possibility remains that we humans might get it right, let us not go quietly. We are an intelligent, self-reflective species with powerfulcommunication networks. This gives us the capacity to learn, to change, to perhaps become a healer to the Earth we have so abused. It begins with our pledge to be healing lovers and protective warriors.

The founders of the Order of the Sacred Earth ask only that we pledge to love and defend. Beyond that, it is up to we who take the pledge. There are implications for every aspect of our daily thought and action as we advance a transformation of the failed institutions that currently make it so difficult to live in responsible relationship with one another and Earth’s community of life.

So, what do we do beyond the pledge? Only together can we hope to find the answer.
