Restore Institute specializes in creating harmony and healing in the earth. Restore Institute offers Ecological sustainability based on a long-term perspective, where we conserve the productivity of the waters, the soil and the ecosystem, and reduce our impact on the natural environment and people's health to a level that the natural environment and humanity can handle.
Restore Institute practices replenishing and restoration of the Earth and all of its resources. Restore Institute operates a set of mutual practices with the Earth: reuse, recycle, reduce, repurpose, restore. Restore Institute’s unique curriculum explores worldviews and cultural heritages to help us understand and address ecological trauma.
Restore Institute further examines what roles spirituality, philosophy, and environmental factors have both in generating and responding to ecological challenges. Restore Institute is a nurturing learning community engaged in revitalizing relationships to our earth and exploring intersections of eco-spirituality, eco-justice, indigenous traditions, and eco-feminism. Restore Institute explores how we integrate ecological justice and reverence for the Earth into our spiritual and political practices and in the sustainability of the planet interself.
Environmental justice affirms the sacredness of Mother Earth, ecological unity and the interdependence of all species, and the right to be free from ecological destruction.Environmental justice is the intersection of both social justice and environmentalism, where the inequity in environmental degradation is also considered. Environmental justice affirms the fundamental right to political, economic, cultural, and environmental self-determination of all peoples.
Restore Institute focuses on the ways restoring the earth also heals the mind, body, and spirit.
