Do you hug trees? Do you wonder at the night sky and talk to the moon? Let's share this wonderful book and its ideas for engaging with nature. Seven one-hour meetings, only cost is buying the book.

"EARTH: Our Original Monastery" is a new book by the Founder and Director of Abbey of the Arts, Christine Valters Paintner. She takes us on a seven-part journey, leading us to understand how the natural world was our first connection to everything spiritual. There are Biblical quotes, there is poetry, there are new ways to take intentional walks, new things to think about when we meditate, artistic activities that utilize natural findings, and ways to use words as connections to nature.  Discussions with like-minded people each week, and share if we have tried the suggested activities or not. There's no homework! Earth is our home and we simply love her. This book group is sponsored by the Calm in the Chaos Interfaith Center, and has no fee involved. You should purchase the book ahead of time (, but people will enjoy the discussions even without reading the book!   The link will be sent to you when you register.  Register by sending a text to 585.494.1795 or an email to
