Trout Creek WildernESS 2022
SPRING WILDERNESS RETREAT
May 5, 2022 - May 9, 2022
Join us on an all inclusive 5-day / 4-night retreat surrounded by 300 acres of old-growth forest in one of the most beautiful and pristine spaces in Oregon. We'll gather together to reconnect with nature, remember what we are and journey through the regenerative passageway of spring.
What You Can Expect:
- Wild exercises and activities to initiate us into the season of spring
- Meditation, yoga and group circles surrounded by wilderness
- Cacao ceremony and sound healing
- Delicious meals cooked with love by a former Parisian chef (vegan & vegetarian option available)
- Swim, float or kayak in the Molalla River
- Explore the forest, swim in the river or relax in the cedar bath house
- Wild foraging for spring mushrooms and edible plants
- The opportunity to disconnect (strict airplane mode for phones during the retreat)
We'll stay at the magical Trout Creek Wilderness Lodge, 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 a cosmic bell tent 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, as well as two other hot tubs on site (!), 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.
Trees include Douglas fir, hemlock, maple, alder, birch, and yew. The canopy of trees houses Oregon grape, several types of fern, huckleberry, strawberry, and blackberry. The land is also home to many generations of wild life including brown bear, whitetail deer, mountain lion, bobcat, elk, beaver, otter, owls, woodpeckers, osprey, cranes, bluejays, bald eagles, heron and robin. The Molalla is also home to salmon (chinook and sockeye), rainbow trout, steelhead, and crawfish.
Surround yourself in the wonder and magic of an old-growth rain forest where the creek meets the river and Eagle, Salmon and Bear call home.
Cleanse your body in the cedar bath house, purify your spirit in the sweet waters of the Molalla River and soak your soul in the regenerative energies of spring bursting forth all around you.
Celebrate the season with our wild family and commune with other journeyers and wanderers while surrounded by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
During our time together your guides will facilitate practices, conversations and exercises to encourage your own wildness.
