At Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center, we understand ourselves to be in kinship not only with the humans closest to us in the here and now, but also with the humans and other-than-humans who make up Earth’s community in the past, present and future.  In walking the Narrow Ridge, we consider how our decisions affect these sacred relationships.
Claim your spot for the Spring 2023 Vision Fast program! Limited spaces available. Dates to be announced. Past participants have found the Vision Fast to be a transformative experience. They have come with varying purposes (e.g. to mark an important life transition, to find clarity on important questions or decisions, to find healing and the ability to forgive self or others). Need-based scholarships are available.
Our tasks are mighty. Together we can grow our impact.

 






We are all teachers and we are all learners.
We are all part of just one community.
We are aware of our relationship with others, nature and the divine.
We seek to look closer & deeper so as to see farther & wider.
