I am eager to share this rich resource to participants in my programs and retreats. I am confident it will enhance and deepen the transformational unfolding that is the deepest impulse inherent in being human. The Earthkeeper’s Handbook navigates a beautiful integration and balance between inner awakening and connectedness on all levels and spheres of relationships, community and the entire Earth."

From Kaypacha

"A book I wish everyone would read"

“There is a point of chaos between the end of an age and the beginning of the next. 

We are experiencing this now. It is a point where the old rules and authorities no longer make sense, creating a void of meaning, purpose, and leadership. Enter, The Earth Keeper’s Handbook! 

Coming exactly in time, Ms. Swift provides us with not only an overview of both the advances and challenges of our times, but insights, examples, and personal practices beautifully designed to help us meet them. 

This is a book for future leaders and wisdom keepers, those called to deeply connect to their innermost core calling and bring their unique gifts and blessings out to a world in need. It is a book that I wish everyone would read!
So Much Love"



About the Book

A true handbook for your journey

First, you’re going to want to devour The Earth Keeper’s Handbook for yourself...

Then, you’ll find yourself rifling through the pages again to read a quote to a friend...

Later, when you find yourself in challenging circumstances, you’ll be skimming through the table of contents to find the experiential practice for what’s going on in your life at that moment.     

Every time you open this book, you’ll be taking another step toward becoming the most grounded, powerful, fulfilled, connected and loving version of yourself.

This book will support you in healing the beliefs you’ve developed about not being lovable, worthy, smart or ready enough to do the work on this planet that is yours alone to do.  

No matter where you are in your journey toward finding your divine place on earth, you’ll find something in these pages that speaks to you in a way you’d never quite understood before. 

This book is the culmination of Loren’s life journey toward greater self-acceptance and finding her own unique contribution to the world.  On these pages you’ll find everything she has seen, learned and felt along the way, which could be helpful to you as you find your own path.

This book is for you if:

  • You feel frustrated by the current state of the world, but aren’t sure what to do about it
  • You suspect you have a larger mission on this planet than you are currently living
  • You’re feeling isolated in your everyday routine, wishing for a greater sense of belonging and community
  • You’re curious about how your own inner healing work can contribute to the healing of the planet

Each day and each moment, we are able to create and recreate our lives

“No dark fate determines our future. We do. Each day and each moment, we are able to create and re-create our lives and the very quality of human life on our planet. This is the power we yield.” 

-- Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Southern Africa, The Book of Joy


an excerpt from the Preface

"Our purpose is found inside ourselves and, at the same time, is part of a larger mission. There is a great net we all inherently belong to. And there is a net we each create with intention, using our individual purpose to help weave the container that holds all of us. We live in a new era, one that reveals that indeed, we are all in this together.

We are being asked to cross the threshold into a new world of our own making. We are being challenged to navigate a time of upheaval perhaps unprecedented in human history. It will take the leadership of many people inspired to unleash their passion into the world to live their truth, bring their unique talents, and give their best. The need for change is drawing out of us the courage to live with passion and veracity.

Evolution is inherently innovative. As visionary human beings, we are the face of evolution. We are the ones to catalyze the DNA sleeping in our nuclei and reach for the light in these shadowy times. We are being called to work together to expedite many needed efforts, from protecting the environment to housing the homeless.

The steps to liberation from our past also hold the unveiling of the future. This handbook is a template to move through personal and social encumbrances and into freedom—the freedom to be the leaders of our own lives and to create the future that holds our children and their children’s children with thoughtfulness. Whatever method you choose or path you take, let it free and empower you to be the leader of your life and to unshackle your creativity and bring your unique purpose into the world. Your inspired life is what the world needs.

Your fulfillment is your gift, and it is also life’s purpose. After all, that is what life does. It gives. It creates. It reaches for more. And when blocked, it doesn’t give up. It transcends its own limitations."


"A work of Love"
