Searching to make peace between traditional beliefs, today’s science, and the bourgeoning planetary crisis? Experienced Zoom-leader, passionate and courageous leader, Carol Kilby knows this search intimately.

Stepping out of the pulpit to run an eco-spirituality retreat hosting new-thought teachers like Brian Swimme, Matthew Fox, Miriam MacGillis, Jennifer Morgan, and more, Kilby discovers evolutionary wisdom to navigate Earth-community’s darkness of unknowing. She shares it in this four-week series.

Program will include storytelling, imagery, break-through groups, and Evolutionary Ritual. It will challenge those new to the new Universe Story, connect those lamenting the environmental emergency, honour those longing for a sustainable future, and empower those committed to co-creating a culture of human-Earth mutuality.

Suggested but not necessary reading:
Evolutionary Dancer, Out, In, and On the Fringe of the Church –


Weekly Outline:

1. Stepping into the Darkness and the Evolutionary Dance. Exploring our place and the planetary crisis in the Deep Time Story.

2. The Mirror Dance with Today’s Evolutionaries. Recognizing the teachers we need and the evolutionary wisdom they offer to guide us through the Exodus and into the Ecozoic era.

3. I Spy with my Evolutionary Eye. Putting on the lenses of Awe, Ecology, and Cosmology to heal our social myopia.

4. The Dance of Transformation. The purpose and power of Evolutionary Rituals to create holy days and holidays that shape a culture free of planet abuse.

Rev. Dr. Carol Kilby is the author of Evolutionary Dancer, Out, In, and on the Fringe of the Church. Ordained in the United Church of Canada, (1991) she holds a Masters of Divinity from the University of Toronto, and a Dr. of Ministry from the University of Creation Spirituality. (2004)   Responding to the planetary crisis, Kilby stepped out of ministry to found and coordinate the Gaia Centre for Eco-Spirituality and Sustainable Work. (2005)  When she returned to offer supply ministry at Kinmount United Church, she found herself in and an experiment in Evolutionary Spirituality which inspired her to write.  She is also author of Our Cosmic Beatitudes, A Code of Being for this Evolutionary Moment. Kilby is a contributing member of the Deep Time Network, Creation Spirituality Communities, and host of a webinar program: Evolutionary Ritual Community. She resides in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Here is what others are saying:

“A genuine contribution for the march from stale religion to lively spirituality!” – Matthew Fox, Original Blessing

The book’s filled to the brim with insight and wisdom for a troubled time.”– Jan Phillips, No Ordinary Time

“A re-integration and revitalization of Church and worship” – Diarmuid O’Murchu, Quantum Theology

Her work is readily available for people new to the Universe Story and it is equally engaging for folks who are familiar with the story and who have prayed, played and danced the story for some time.  I hope to see you there.
