An emerging worldview that fosters an ecological consciousness of the integrity of creation is represented in the panoramic view above. To the right, stacks of a coal burning power plant are diminishing as our awareness expands. Join La Vista atop these bluffs and learn to nourish a sustainable, viable and resilient life!

"By transforming our consciousness we participate in the transformation of the world."

Our sister, Mother Earth, has provided a bounty of rain this spring, producing abundant growth in the pollinator garden. Jack Lau continues work on the butterfly puddle area. Tadpoles have taken advantage of the water source.

And nearby, novices Paul and Amila found a lovely box turtle. Let's celebrate the gift of life!

Please enjoy our Summer/Fall newsletter and read about extending mercy in your own back yard. You will also find our calendar of events, and we invite you to come see us soon.
