I entered the immersion longing for a greater sense of connection within the heart of nature. While that was all that I had hoped for, I was deeply moved by the way Kerry and David drew the community together into a village of tenderness and openness. I found that the weaving together of nature, dream, creativity, silence, story, nourishment, and insight generated a sense of sacred community that I had not expected. While I am always a bit hesitant to lean into such things, their gentle and wise guidance created the kind of space where deep human connections happen, and the path and mystery of another becomes sacred ground.
— Dan Senter, Senior Pastor at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Lafayette, CA

Note: This is an all-camping retreat. A limited number of special accommodations (with pre-set up, roomy tents with padded cots) are available, on a first come-first served basis for an extra $30/night for non-inclined campers or those with physical limitations. Please email info[a] to inquire about availability and to handle payment which is separate from registration payment. We seek to make this retreat available to all who are called: please note that you do not need to be in top physical shape to attend! We will provide a list of equipment upon enrollment and can assist you with where to buy or borrow equipment if needed. Our basecamp is within walking distance from cars.

* Our programs are enriched by a diversity of participants. To this end, we are committed to offering scholarship support to those who feel called and are currently of limited financial means. Access to partial scholarships is contingent on the amount available, so best to inquire early. We take into account each individual circumstance and do our best to support each person’s needs in addition to our own. Scholarships are partial in that we expect you to pay what you can afford with the hope that we can make up the difference. Please note that scholarship money is for program tuition and does not cover travel or extra food costs. The scholarship fund exists due to the generosity of the larger Ecology of Awakening community, for which we are most grateful. To request scholarship support, please fill out the following form: Scholarship Application Form

Registered participants will receive a welcome package with preparation information including suggested reading and helpful practices to engage in before we meet as a group. Please note that if you hold your spot with a deposit, any remaining tuition balance is due 30 days prior to the start of the program.
