Our Story.

In this transition period, many of us can hear the cry of the Earth as we witness the loss of biodiversity, environmental degradation, over and the socio-economical crisis happening around us. We are now having a wave of new “Earth Warriors” generation who stands up for the right of Gaia. They are the ones that care and wonder, the ones that seek to make a change in their own daily lives, the ones that take actions and the ones that unite others around them. Gaia Calling is for these Earth Warriors. The journey of regeneration might be long, but together we are stronger, wiser, happier and more determined than ever to reply to the call of the Earth.

Why Gaia Calling is born?

  • To acknowledge the pain and suffering of the mother Earth, also to celebrate the strength and potential it holds, in healing itself, in regeneration and evolution.

  • To realise the Earth is also learning, as we are exploring and learning about ourselves. This recognition of the immense strength of Mother Earth makes us empowered, gives inspiration and we can harvest these qualities in ourselves, get the energy to be silent warriors in our journey of life. These five days will be about a connection with Gaia along with finding our unique capacity and strength to offer ourselves in this process of evolution and change.


Gaia Calling is a co-creation space where everyone is encouraged to express themselves and contribute their ideas/expertise to enrich the gathering together as a whole. The Activities are designed for holistic learning, a balance of Head (mind and intellect), Heart (spirit) and Hand (body). The 5 days’ activities are based on the mandala of four dimensions of sustainability by GEN – Social, Economy, Ecology and Culture/Worldview.

Exchange of knowledge and information related to the theme of the Gathering via presentation, discussion, sharing, dialogue, open space, and more. Guided sections with notable speakers (Jon Jandai, Om) and sharing sections among topics in social, economic and ecological dimensions.

A safe space to create a deeper connection with the Earth, with each other and with ourselves; to express our gratitude and celebrate our love for Gaia through music, art, rituals and cultural exchange.

This is the space where people can offer their skills to contribute to the beauty and abundance and to regenerate the land. The love and joy in working together practically will also deepen our connection with ourselves and with each other
