Wayfinders is a uniquely immersive experience that integrates a wide range of learning opportunities with community living and service. Over four months, we will explore:
Learn as a cohort, in small teams, and on your own - guided by facilitators, advisors, peers, and nature. Learn by doing. In the garden or by creating hiking trails. Through woodwork and artwork. Music and dance. Storytelling. Cooking and cleaning together. Through stillness and rest.
Learn to communicate more clearly, effectively, and compassionately. Grow your capacity to consider multiple perspectives, work through tension and conflict, and find common ground.
Learn by contemplating what matters most: your values, purpose, relationships, and how you want to live your life. Contemplate big questions on your own and in community. Explore a personal passion project or discover new passions. Reflect upon and track your growth.
Learn simple, proven tools for healthier bodies, minds, spirits, and relationships. Explore these practices and exercises regularly as a cohort, guided by facilitators and teachers.
Learn transferable skills that can be utilized for vocation, community-building, an entrepreneurial vision, social change endeavors - and “adulting.” Think skills and tools for visioning, planning, finances, facilitation, networking, and adapting to change.
Learn by being immersed in nature. Learn by contributing to the care and stewardship of the land and retreat center and through service projects that support the surrounding community
