The Oregon Experience.


Journey to the old growth forest on the Molalla river for a 5 day/4 night all inclusive retreat to awaken your connection to self, community & mystery.

May 4 - May 8, 2023


There is an innate longing to connect with our true nature.

"Once we have tasted wildness, we begin to hunger for a food long denied us, and the more we eat of it the more we will awaken."
-Stephen Buhner

Surrounded by 300 acres of pristine pacific northwest wilderness we will gather to remember where our soul meets the world. We will explore the medicine that exists within community, ritual, embodiment practices and connecting with nature.

We will eat fresh, tasty food, commune with the river outside your doorstep and participate in deep, powerful practices to awaken the wildness that lies within.

Crossing the threshold into Spring.

Join us in the lush, rain forest of Northwest Oregon to entrain our hearts with the heart of Nature. We'll take this time to intentionally pause from the busyness and routine of our daily lives and deepen our connection to the sacred within ourselves, each other and this beautiful land.

Where will we be staying?

Trout Creek Wilderness Lodge

Trout Creek Wilderness Lodge is hidden away in an old-growth forest where the creek meets the Molalla River.

Lodging options include painted tipis with fire rings, tucked away cabins overlooking the creek and camping under the stars. All participants will have access to the beautiful communal lodge with dining and outdoor areas, a fire pit, showers, a stunning wood deck overlooking the river, a newly built cedar bath house next to the river with cedar hot tub, cold plunge claw foot tub and sauna, a river beach with canoes and kayaks, a pristine swimming hole where the creek flows into the river and the salmon breed, and of course, forest trails right out your front door.
