Celebrating Our 27th Year!

Four Quarters is Open!
    With the opening of campgrounds in PA, Four Quarters is now open for visitors, camping, and ceremony. Being in the outdoors is among the safest recreational activities available, with the Land alive, beautiful, and waiting. Our grounds fees are very affordable at $10 anight for non-members. We are committed to following PA state guidelines, so bring your masks and wash your hands! Be welcome on the Mountain! The Stones are waiting!

UPDATE - June 2, 2020   DRUM AND SPLASH !
    As of June 5th the State of Pennsylvania has declared Bedford County Phase "Green," allowing gatherings of up to 250 persons.  That means Drum 'N' Splash is good to go! And we can't wait to see you all on the land again.
    We are rushing to contact our presenters and make these last minute arrangements for Drum and Splash, which this year more than ever will be an example of a Living Community of Choice.
    So break free of the lock-downs, leave the city and join us in the safety and beauty of this Wonderful Land.
    See special registration and COVID safety mitigations at the Drum and Splash page!

lyre_playerSince 1994 Four Quarters has been growing functional cultural alternatives,
firmly grounded in an Ecological and Earth Spiritual perspective.
We derive our spiritual inspiration from nature, and seek to live within the
physical limits of the Land, its seasons and cycles.
We do not teach any "...isms" and we do not pretend to have "The Answer..."
But we do try to ask good questions.

Earth Spirit and Earth Living.

A COVID-19 PSA from Four Quarters InterFaith
We have been tracking COVID-19 epidemiology and policy developments closely, with official guidance developing daily. Please click here for an important notice concerning our Spring Schedule changes.

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. 
 


Earth3At 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.




StateOfWorldWe 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.
