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 2018 Conference

Mount St. Joseph University

On the grounds of the Sisters of Charity, Cincinnati, OH


Sharing the Wisdom, Shaping the Dream: Creating the Future We Want

The 2018 Sisters of Earth Conference will run from July 12-15 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Participants will have the opportunity to arrive a day early and stay a day later to meet their travel and lodging needs. The theme for the 2018 conference is “Sharing the Wisdom, Shaping the Dream: Creating the Future We Want.” This theme is inspired from Joanna Macy’s concept of Sacred Activism and Active Hope.


Our 2016 SOE Conference welcomed indigenous women as our leaders in presentation and dialogue toward broader perspectives.

Many of the sessions were videotaped and are online in YouTube format. Here is one of them.
