The Hummingbird Center for Common Ground

An Open Meeting Place for Connecting with Nature, Culture and Spirit

on the edge of Montpelier, Vermont

The spirit of Healing transcends the individual to involve the whole community.” ~ Wendell Berry

OUR NAME: Named to honor a tiny jeweled bird, The Hummingbird Center is an intimate gathering place with a stunning lookout to the valley, mountains, and sky of the Dog River Valley.

VISION: To create health through a density of connection, people gather to re-imagine their callings in the world, build community, and help cultivate a sacred, just and ecological future.

MISSION: We offer a space for reflection, dialogue, convivial learning and creativity to generate connection, care and healing with ourselves, each other, and the places we call home.

WHO COMES HERE AND WHY

We welcome people from multiple cultures and spiritualities as well as those who are change-makers, educators, contemplatives, social healers, movement builders, health-care workers, and also creatives engaged in music, movement, spoken, written and visual arts. 

The lookout from the Center and grounds provides space for:

Inter-cultural Dialogue and Deep Reflection

Conviviality, Creativity and Engaged Action

Experiential Workshops and Presentations

Imagination, Ritual, Art and Celebration
