    LIVE Strength Sharing Session
    Bring more people into retreat by uniting with other peaceful changemakers. Human beings need retreat to effectively adapt to their changing lives, especially now. If you have a coping practice that helps you, telling and showing people in a natural retreat setting can dramatically improve lives.

  • Deep Talks: Chat and vent goodness sessions
    Multiple Dates
    Wed, Jul 27
    Jul 27, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM CDT
    These are monthly sessions for chatting and venting, with themed suggestions for conversation topics (if some conversation encouragement is even needed.) All perspectives are welcomed and accepted at face value. All of us have something to learn about everyone else's experience.



In Autumn of 2021 we restarted our main project activity: being with each other in nature to do good. Sign up to get updates and you can join the effort.

Looking at map

One way to connect with the earth is to get out of the everyday in a place where you can connect with your inner wildish ways. Nature's full of party people.
