community of the cosmic person

nourishing the flourishing of people, place, and planet

...together

The Community of the Cosmic Person is a network of people living lightly, meaningfully, and interdependently as members of the whole community of life on Earth. 

Together, we are learning to be present to the planet in a mutually beneficial manner for the common good of all that lives and moves and has its being in this incredible expanding universe. 

Connect with the community through the social media links in the top corner of this page.
