You are a volunteer or employee of an environmental organization who wants to recharge your passion for this important work. The activities and time for reflection will help you reconnect with your story, find inner wisdom, build resilience, renew focus, strengthen professional integrity and respond more courageously to ecological challenges. People who have attended similar retreats have left with greater clarity, courage and other inner resources to support the work and their colleagues.

“Knowing that you love the earth changes you, activates you to defend and protect and celebrate. But when you feel that the earth loves you in return, that feeling transforms the relationship from a one-way street into a sacred bond.” ~ Robin Wall Kimmerer from Braiding Sweetgrass
