Values & Guiding Principles

Quality of Life & Environmental Renewal

Culture is beyond definition and limitation – a concept or a box. It is the living, evolving soul of the people.” ~ Dr. M.J. Miller

Purpose

To cultivate via contemplative studies, ecology, applied research, and social engagement the capacity to transform our quality of life (personal and community experience)

To develop and utilize discerning self-knowledge in relationship with our environment (i.e., Self, Self as others/community, and Self as nature/the environment)

To assert heart-centered, principles that facilitate ecological, social, and economic justice

To engage in stewardship of the Earth and to re-establish the health and wellbeing of our local-global communities

Sustainable Evolution

Life is an ecological balance, which encompasses everything. The Conservatory seeks to not only minimize our ecological footprint; but, to change our relationship with the Earth, our environment. It is reciprocal relationship that lays the foundation for environmental renewal.

Expanding our definition of self to include self as others, community, and Earth/environment creates an inventive, evolving individual and collective sense of self. Wholistically developing the mental, creative, physical, emotional, spiritual-conscious, and relational/social dimensions of the self awakens a different relationship with the world.

The Conservatory is vested in restoring life giving resources and systems. We explore aligning with the Earth’s natural rhythms and processes (i.e., biomimicry) to inspire innovative ideas and collaboratively create solutions that advance a restorative relationship with the planet.

Our focus is to assist in evolving culture via connection with nature and relationship. Creating new experiences act as a catalyst to galvanize our local-global community toward restorative and sustainable existence. Now is the time!
