University of Earth
University of Earth (UE) is an alternative college founded in 2004. Following Buckminster Fuller's admonition to "create a new model, that makes the existing model obsolete," University of Earth is a nature-based wisdom school dedicated to fulfilling Berry's call for a single sacred community; creating a world that works for us all, both human and non-human. What many are calling an Ecocentric society.
Creating an Ecocentric society is the central challenge of our times and we truly believe creating such a society is possible. To this end University of Earth exists. The transition from our "Industrial Growth" anthropocentric or human centered society, a society that has improved the lives of many, but has also brought us climate change, the extinction crisis, pollution of our water, air and land as well as the increasing probability of global food and water shortages will require many of us to develop and offer our unique gifts to the world.
University of Earth specializes in assisting people of all ages in finding their true life purpose or "calling." We offer affordable and transformative workshops and courses for the general public, CEU workshops for professionals, online graduate level degree and certification programs, seasonal gatherings, rites of passage ceremonies and rituals, and a forty acre campus along the beautiful Wild & Scenic Middle Fork of the Feather River for personal and group nature retreats.
