Sisters of Earth was founded in 1994 by several Catholic Sisters from the US and Canada who were engaged in exploring the new cosmology and implications for this emerging worldview. Sisters of Earth is an informal network of women who share a deep concern for the ecological and spiritual crises of our times and who wish to support one another in work toward healing the human spirit and restoring Earth’s life support systems. We are teachers, gardeners, artists, writers, administrators, workshop and retreat presenters, mothers, contemplatives and activists in North America, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and beyond. This network of sharing and support is open to all women whose life and work would identify them as Sisters of Earth. We hold a general meeting every two years in different parts of the USA.

To become a member of the Sisters of Earth network contact Loretta Peters for information.

Sisters of Earth 2016 Conference
July 7-10, 2016
Presentation Center in Los Gatos, CA
Conference Theme:
Zest for Life - Partnering with our Sacred Earth Community

With women from north to south we are deeply concerned for what is happening to holy mother Earth. Indigenous women, especially in areas like the tar sands of northern Alberta, the uranium mines in New Mexico, and the hydro, oil and gold industries in Peru have a unique perspective on how we might partner with the Earth herself to bring about healing.

Our 2016 SOE conference welcomed indigenous women as our leaders in presentation and dialogue toward broader perspectives. Through this experience we imagine building up new, mutually-beneficial partnerships to strengthen our sacred Earth community.
