Tribal Alliance is a leadership immersion retreat for individuals creating holistic solutions to our world’s woes.

The Earth Village Project is a regenerative rehabilitation response to Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. In collaboration with the community of Batug, we have built a Windship, planted a community garden, helped a family build a mud house and set up base camp. What’s next? We’re piloting a learning village where we will work with the community to empower folks to build mud walls and home gardens.
