The Centre for Ecology and Spirituality is situated 80 km from Melbourne in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range.
The Centre provides an opportunity for people to spend time on the spiritual and ecological dimensions of their lives. It offers space for reflection, discussion and education. The teaching emphasis at the centre is not so much religious as spiritual in the broader sense, especially as it concerns an attitude and identification with the earthed tradition and what it means to be a human in an evolving universe.
The Centre wishes to be inclusive and welcomes all interested in the link between ecology and spirituality.
