The universe is not a collection of objects but a communion of subjects.
— Thomas Berry

We live in catalytic times ripe with the possibility of both destruction and generative transformation.  For the well-being of future generations, we face the task of moving from a perspective of separateness and competition in our world into a place of relationship, collaboration, and communion.

 It is our mission at CRCL to support this shift through community building, leadership development and educational programming that seeks to heal and deepen the interdependent relationship that exists between self, Earth, community, and the numinous (mystery, wonder, imagination). We believe these four primary relationships weave meaning, beauty, joy, and a sense of belonging into the human experience and hold the key to a thriving future for generations to come. 

 Through the healing and deepening of these primary relationships, we seek to stitch resilience into the fabric of our communities and relational wisdom into the transformative actions of our hands, hearts, and minds.
