In Person Workshops & Retreats – Most of our in person live workshops are held in or near Mt Jefferson Wilderness Area near Detroit, Oregon.

All our programs utilize the healing properties of these immense and beautiful natural areas – offering various workshops, retreats and seminars in the surrounding area.

Current Workshops and Retreats – We are offering several workshops for this fall and winter 2017-2018,  both in person and online. Please go to our Workshops & Retreats webpage for more info.

Our Educational Philosophy – Conscious living, mindfulness, ecological wisdom and evolutionary thinking is integrated with a diverse new thought holistic philosophy in our nature-based programs and also the way we conduct ourselves as teachers. Our focus is an open new thought spiritual philosophy, taking the best teachings of many beliefs and practices. This would include eastern and western practices, meditation, prayer and quiet contemplation, metaphysics, energy medicine, science and quantum physics, shamanic and earth-based traditions, as well as natural health and holistic well-being practices. We utilize the healing and insightful aspects of nature and the wild in our educational programs and philosophy.
