Earth Literacy Companions of the Colorado Piedmont
1017 Longs Peak Avenue
The Earth Literacy Companions (ELC) are a dedicated group of volunteers who wish to teach others about "Earth Litearcy." Earth Literacy is a branch of the environmental movement in which life on Earth is seen to at a turning point. The turning point is a crisis in our perception of reality. To respond to this crisis, we must rethink the way we live, or become "earth literate." Earth Literacy requires a radical change in perception and behavior, especially in our relationship with the Earth. ELC focuses primarily on the work of Thomas Berry, a "geologian" who emphasizes the integration of the wonders of the Earth into one's spiritual tradition, a deep bioregional awareness, and an understanding of our origin story or New Cosmology.
