The Center for Belonging nurtures grassroots community connection in spacious time through celebration, ritual, play, song, story, art, food, craft, and learning together with nature. We are non-experts working together to offer authentic alternatives to the perfectionism, isolation, and rush of modern society. We create simple and welcoming ways for connecting humans of all ages to spirit, land, and one another.
