The Hummingbird Center for Common Ground
A Place to Gather, Re-Imagine, and Design what is Just, Sacred, and Whole
“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 gathering space for reflection, dialogue, convivial learning, and creativity to generate connection, care, and healing with ourselves, each other, and the places we call home.
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.
We also offer Spiritual Care with those in need.
The lookout from the Center and grounds provides space for:
Inter-cultural Dialogue, Deep Reflection, Spiritual Care
Conviviality, Creativity and Engaged Action
Experiential Workshops and Presentations
Imagination, Ritual, Art and Celebration
