“As an eco-visionary, I picture a time on Earth when all people are mindful of their roles in protecting and sustaining the living ecology of their bodies and the Earth, and devoted to helping life go on for their generation and the next!” –Candia Lea Cole
The Mission of Eco-Learning Legacies is three-fold:
- It is to inspire individuals and families to awaken and nourish their innate eco-intelligence, –the intelligence they, and all living things were born with, that guides them to live in ecological balance and harmony.
- It is to offer educational tools that support individuals and families in creating “eco-intelligent” lifestyles that serve to integrate their personal health needs with ‘Mother Earth’s’ health needs. An eco-intelligent lifestyle is one that includes whole foods nutrition, natural earth-sourced medicines, and non-toxic lifestyle products. As we make choices that heal ourselves, we also make choices that heal the Earth. Ultimately, we discover how to be in a caring, loving partnership with our whole selves and the whole Earth! Connection is our greatest human need!
- It is to give life-long learners an opportunity to contribute their voice and talents to the Eco-Learning Legacies community through their participation in the The Eco-Legacies Club©. This is a club that invites you to share your personal passion for eco-intelligent living, and grow the impact of our collective eco-legacy. The need to be of service is yet another one of our greatest human needs! So, don’t wait another day to get involved!
My company’s signature product, The Bring Back the Earth! Eco-Learning Legacy & Eco-Mentor Leadership Training was conceived in 1996-97, several months after I launched a successful eco-edutainment event at a corporate green festival in southern Oregon. The purpose of that event was to enlighten young people about the value and necessity of adopting an eco-conscious lifestyle that could support them in integrating their personal health needs with the Earth’s health needs. What evolved out of the event was the birth of the Eco-Mentor Training Tools pictured below. These education tools, which I devoted 12 years of my life to developing, include my memoir, my Eco-Mentor Curriculum Guide Book, my six Workbook/Journals, and my companion audio series. To learn more about these tools, I invite you to visit Eco-Mentor U on this website. By the way, the friendly looking guy featured alongside me in the picture on this page, is my partner of 28 years. Without his constant companionship, love, and support, my “babies” never would have been born!
