Inner Climate Academy (ICA) provides spaces for inner reflection & inquiry, collaborative research & dialogue, and facilitated explorations that lead to personal and societal transformation of our relationship with the living Earth.
At this time of climate and ecological emergency, and unprecedented crises of multiple dimensions in global human systems, ICA‘s vision is to bring forth an Earth honoring, life-affirming human presence on this planet, which will enable us to adapt and build regenerative cultures for the future beings of all species.

The natural world is the larger sacred community to which we belong. To be alienated from this community is to become destitute in all that makes us human. To damage this community is to diminish our own existence ”

– Thomas Berry

 “Eco-civilization,  is a social formation, consistent with the repair and ongoing renewal of the biosphere...

 A key to the discovery of appropriate cultural and philosophical foundations for eco-civilization in the West will be dialogue with other civilizations.

 In face of the current increasingly catastrophic regime of climate change, mass extinctions, loss of biodiversity and worldwide ecological degradation of land, rivers and oceans, all nations, all peoples, are now having to acknowledge the plight of the planetary life-system. 

 There is a possibility that out of this unprecedented crisis, a meta-cultural normative consensus might emerge...

 As societies grapple with the implications of their earth responsibilities for the deepest presuppositions of their cultures, they might find new points of convergence with one another in their philosophical thinking and hence in their cultural evolution. 

It is around these points of convergence [through inter-civilizational dialogue] that the outlines of an earth-civilization might begin to emerge."

Come explore with us about what is happening to the world and ourselves in it. We provide safe spaces to unpack, unlearn, unravel old ideas and preconceived notions. To detox from rational, mechanistic worldviews and find out what wants to be born instead.


As the old ways of seeing are unraveling and the new ways are not yet obvious. We are actively exploring and inquiring into questions related to life, both human and non-human. Partner with us if you have the same curiosity!

“If dominating and destructive relations to the earth are interrelated with gender, class, and racial domination, then a healed relation to the earth cannot come about simply through technological ‘fixes’.


It demands a social reordering to bring about just and loving interrelationship between men and women, between races and nations, between groups presently stratified into social classes, manifest in great disparities of access to the means of life.


In short, it demands that we must speak of eco-justice, and not simply of domination of the earth as though that happened unrelated to social domination”.

— Rosemary Radford Ruether
