Earth Apprentice Retreat – April 20-21, 2024

We apprentice ourselves to the living earth around us.

We ask help from river, creeks, hills and sandstone bluffs, maples and buckthorn and berries, grasses, mosquitoes, eagles and deer.

We listen to their reply and act on their instructions.


These words describe an intention for how we relate to the land: mutuality, interdependence, and communication. It’s an ongoing learning.

We invite you into this kind of relationship with the land, a weekend from 10 am Saturday to 4 pm Sunday. Expect a clear introduction, meditative time in the natural world, council meetings for gathering and deepening, a short outdoor work project, and closing circle. Meals, snacks, and simple sleeping arrangements.

We’re inviting you to join us in learning sacred and intimate relationship with the land. This is an act of trust. In joining us, please honor the land, the leaders, and yourself.

Suggested donation is $100 for the weekend, including food and housing. Additional contributions are welcome to provide support for those who can’t pay the full cost, which includes a modest stipend for the teacher (Shodo Spring). No one will be turned away for inability to pay.

People with questions about accessibility also are invited to ask first.
