Detailed Information:
Animá Learning Center and Wildlife Sanctuary



Animá Center provides educational resources, correspondence courses, events and volunteer opportunities intended to inspire a deeper connection to both natural self and the natural world, informing, healing and empowering change. The Center is surrounded by one of the wildest and most enchanting mountain ecosystems in the U.S.: New Mexico’s Gila National Forest. A crystalline river runs through the land and past giant, fiery purple and orange cliffs featuring the rock-art spirals of the ancient Mogollon Indians. It’s as far removed from the noise, schedule and haste of the modern world as one can get, a four to five hour drive from the Albuquerque or Tucson airports. All services, books and events are offered on a donations basis. The Center serves several complimentary roles, as:

• A source of the Animá teachings and practice, a way of positive, environmentally responsible living and reciprocal relationship with the natural world. Correspondence courses with focuses such as wild plants and medicine, wilderness restoration, living close to the land, and earth-based spirituality.
• A Learning Center, hosting on site workshops on stream restoration, wild foods, deep ecology, plant conservation and medicine, plus vision quests and individualized Animá teachings.
• A Women’s Center, offering extended resident internships, courses, and special events including the Wild Women’s Gathering every Summer Solstice.
• A Wildlife and Botanical Sanctuary, a US Fish and Wildlife Service Cooperator with already over three decades of river restoration... focused on maximizing plant and animal diversity, reintroducing native plants including wildlife forage and medicinal herbs.
• An Archaeological Preserve, protecting the physical ruins and legacy of the first Native Americans who lived there.
• An outreach project, providing staff written articles to magazines nationwide, authoring and publishing books on the human/nature relationship including Gaia Eros (Jesse Wolf Hardin, NewLeaf Pub. 2006) and Home (Jesse Wolf Hardin, Clear Light Books 2006).
