Partner Earth Education Center at Sweetwater Sanctuary sits at the base of Marble Mountain and the Dorset Peaks, some of the highest peaks in southern Vermont. This is home to black bear, coyote, bobcat, raven, wild turkey, porcupine, ermine, beaver, moose and red-tail hawk. We are surrounded by thousands of acres of protected woodlands and meadows with a rushing brook that cascades down the mountain and flows centrally through the property. There are many natural springs on the mountain but right at our doorstep is Heart Spring producing several gallons of water per minute. It is this pure, sweet water that is the constantly flowing life force of Sweetwater Sanctuary that nourishes not only our bodies and soil but our spirits as well.
We regularly honor the land, water and all the beings at Sweetwater Sanctuary both seen and unseen through prayer, ceremony and offerings seeking to create sacred space for those who find their way here. In this atmosphere not only optimal learning but also deep healing can take place. Your educational experience goes beyond information exchange touching into your heart, soul and spirit for core integration, assimilation, and connection with yourself and nature.
