Sacred Earth Network (SEN) is a non-profit (501(C)(3) international
organization located in Nichewaug (Petersham), Massachusetts. SEN is
dedicated to protecting indigenous land and culture and in cultivating a
deep felt sense of the sacred through programs open to all people.
We support indigenous practices, Earth-centered wisdom, and experiential
learning as a holistic approach to creating sustainable culture
Our activities are rooted in two core beliefs:
-that all of Nature is sacred and must be treated with respect and honor,
-that humanity must quickly restructure its relationship with the
miraculous, interconnected living system that is our Earth.
Our intent is to pass on truly sustainable knowledge and practices to future
"As soon as we allow ourselves to think of the world as alive, we recognize that a part of us knew this all along. It is like emerging from winter into spring. We can begin to reconnect our mental life with our own direct intuitive experiences of nature. We can participate in the spirits of sacred places and times. We can see that we have much to learn from traditional societies who have never lost their sense of connection with the living world around them. We can acknowledge the animistic traditions of our ancestors. And we can begin to develop a richer understanding of human nature, shaped by tradition and collective memory, linked to the earth and the heavens, related to all forms of life, and consciously open to creative power expressed in all evolution. We are reborn into a living world."
