Welcome to Timberlake Earth Sanctuary

. . . a place apart from the pace and pressure of our times
. . . a place for healing the human-earth relationship
. . . a place to recover a sense of the sacred in our lives

The forest of Timberlake Earth Sanctuary

Timberlake Earth Sanctuary is a unique place of beauty graced with sunlit meadows, shimmering ponds, and woodlands of tulip poplar, dogwood, oak, and pine.

It is a place where mists rise off ponds in the early morning, where a resident blue heron flies overhead, and where barred owls speak every night. A place where deer, raccoon, and other wild creatures make unexpected appearances on land protected in perpetuity under a conservation easement with the Conservation Trust of North Carolina. A place where the natural world inspires creativity, evokes wonder, and fosters healing of body, mind, and spirit.

Timberlake Earth Sanctuary is a place where time unwinds, wheels stop spinning, and thoughtful ideas emerge in this sacred and loving space—a space filled with the wonder, beauty, and intimacy of the natural world for all who come.

We invite you to make an appointment to visit and experience the land for yourself.

“It is a place of magical moments where everyone
who comes receives exactly what they need.”
—Thomas Berry, author of Dream of the Earth
