There are so many of us who imagine and long for
a different way of living on this Earth.

Each of us carry unique gifts and the capacity to create a more peaceful, socially just, and ecologically regenerative future.  Living the fullness of what our hearts know is possible is a community endeavor. Nature’s Mystery wants to collaborate with you to realize our common dreams.

Community makes us more resilient to the personal and collective challenges we face.  We know that in order to live in integrity with our values and see our children mature with respect and beauty in their hearts, we need each other.


Nature’s Mystery Awareness School was founded in 2012 on the principle that the Earth itself is our greatest teacher. Every great chief, poet, philosopher and spiritual teacher from earth-based traditions understood the universal interconnection of life.  At Nature’s Mystery Awareness School we seek to reawaken a sense of reverence for the elements, creatures, and ecological miracles in the hearts and minds of current and future generations. Our approach is inspired by the teachings and practices of our ancestors and the few remaining individuals and cultures of the modern world who view all in the web of life as kin. We also draw from both Waldorf and Montessori models of education.

Our offerings are specifically designed for families of the Southern Willamette Valley (including Eugene, Springfield, Cottage Grove and surrounding areas) with children ages three to thirteen.
