The Sacred Earth Institute (SEI) offers classes, workshops and services that honor the sacredness of the natural world of which we are all a part. Join us for our specially designed services throughout the year.

Our Co-Hosts...

Jennifer J. Wilhoit, Ph.D. is a spiritual ecologist, published author, and the founder of TEALarborstories. She compassionately supports people’s projects and healing processes by drawing from nature’s wisdom, based on decades of environmental conservation, restoration projects, and the promotion of wild and native species in the U.S. and abroad. Her books, articles, and blogs focus on the “inner/outer landscape” which she has been researching and practicing for thirty years. Jennifer’s scholarly work looks at conservation through a multiplicity of lenses including the humanities. Undergirding her professional and personal pursuits is Jennifer’s conviction that the preservation of and relationships with natural, wild, native ecosystems are paramount to our survival as a species and planet. Dr. Wilhoit presents her work to audiences in a myriad of disciplines.

Kate Trnka, founder of The Sacred Earth Institute (SEI), is an ordained minister through the Church of the Earth Nation and the Universal Life Church. She is an educator, poet and author with her Bachelor's  and Master's degrees in Education with an emphasis in Creative Arts in Learning and is nearing the completion of her Ph.D. in Ecopsychology.

Join us in-person or online for an Earthy midwinter day of reflection, inspiration, and intention-setting as we embark on 2023. You will gain techniques for letting go of what you no longer need in your outer environment and inner life, as well as engage processes for inviting what you want for this new year. The workshop will conclude with the creation of a symbolic collage to capture your intentions for forward movement. We will guide you through feng shui practices; reflective nature-based, creative activities (including guided journaling); and other Earth-based practices for renewal and focus. Participants will receive a certificate of accomplishment plus limited-time discounts on services from your hosts, TEALarbor stories and The Sacred Earth Institute. (We're sorry that we will not be able to refund any Eventbrite fees in the event you cancel your registration.) A short list of what to bring with you will be emailed to in-person and online participants in advance of the event.
