Since 1994 Four Quarters has been growing functional cultural alternatives, firmly grounded in an Ecological and Earth Spiritual perspective.
Four Quarters is a Membership-driven non-profit, a vibrant community of real people living real lives. And Four Quarters actually owns the Land, buildings and equipment that make our work possible, forever set aside from the vagaries of private ownership.
The content of our events is developed by Member Planning Groups; our buildings are built and the Camp Staffed by Member volunteers. Our twice monthly Spiritual Circles are led by Members who ask good questions, and volunteer their Service to our Community. If it happens, it is because our Members make it happen.
At our core, Four Quarters is The Land.
A sacred place in the Alleghenies, set aside in perpetuity as a Sanctuary for Nature... and for People.
A lasting home for Earth Based Spirituality.
Where our Members seasonal campsites become their home away from home, and our guests can "get a feel" for our kind of community... and become a part of it.
Home for Ceremony and Celebration.
We who live here at Four Quarters are keenly aware of the emerging global predicament, the onset of the Age of Limits. And in these troubling times of climate change, resource depletion and economic globalism we act as a laboratory in miniature for the strategies that will lead towards a sustainable future. We raise much of our own food, and its preservation and storage is a large part of our own “Wheel of the Year.” We are committed to renewable and small scale energy systems; we heat with wood and practice passive design in our structures.
We see the ancient traditions of Earth Spirit as providing the best ethical guidance for a sustainable future of Earth Living we must now create.
We invite you to come join us...
Ask a question, find your answer,
as we stand together in the Center of the Circle.
"All of Life is interrelated. We are all caught
in an inescapable network of mutuality,tied to a single garment of destiny.
Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
