Wild Convergence is for anyone looking to cultivate connection and community.

Over the past few years we've noticed a common theme - that many people feel completely disconnected from a sense of community.

This is an invitation to step into our growing community to make new friendships, rekindle past relationships and feel the medicine that exists when we intentionally come together.
Wild Convergence is focused on fostering community and connection.

We will intentionally lean into the pillar of community together. Stepping into sacred space, the kind that touches your soul and spirit in a way that's hard to put into words.

We will unplug, relax and honor the seasonal change into fall.

Spending nights around the campfire, enjoying each other's company, listening to live music and just being present with yourself, nature and each other.

Along the way, we will offer a taste of the work that we do at Wild Within. Our time will be supplemented with practices and activities that help to foster the connection back to self, each other, nature and something greater.
This is a back to the land camping experience to give you the opportunity to reconnect with nature.

There will be shared facilities like covered/sheltered areas and toilets but you'll need to bring your own camping equipment.

This includes a tent, sleep pad and sleeping bag - along with anything else that you want to make yourself comfortable.

We recommend you bring clothing that you can layer for any changes in the wear along with a pair of hiking shoes so that you can explore the land that we'll be staying on.

If you choose the meal ticket we will provide all of your meals for you. Otherwise you will be invited to bring all of your own food and any equipment you might need to cook with.

Don't worry we will provide a packing list so you know exactly what you'll need to bring.
We'll be staying at the farm at Catawissa Creek located in Catawissa, Pennsylvania.

Our friends Anne & David own the farm and their mission is to steward the land and support other in making a connection back to the land, nature and food.

Each morning we will wake up to a beautiful forest in all its fall glory, listen to the sounds of the creek and take in the stunning views of Catawissa moutnain.

It's the perfect place to take a break, take a breath and perhaps get your feet a little dirty.

There are two meal options for this retreat:


Option 1: Bring your own food and equipment to cook. Meaning you'll be in charge planning, preparing and cooking all of your meals.


Option 2: Purchase a meal ticket.


We have a former Parisian chef (Julie-Roxane) on our team that will be in charge of meals. : )


Julie-Roxane will be offering 3 meals each day with high quality ingredients (organic when possible). Meals will be nutritious and super tasty. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies just let us know - meals can be adjusted to accommodate your needs.

Everything that we share at Wild Within is informed by four foundational pillars.


WILDERNESS

EMBODIMENT

COMMUNITY

RITUAL


We see these as potent medicines that when experienced first hand have the power to remind us of who we truly are and inform the way we live our lives


When you come to Wild convergence you will have the opportunity to experience each of these four medicines for yourself.

The farm at Catawissa creek has toilet facilities but does not have showers on site. You can use the creek, but in consideration of the ecosystem and everything downstream, please do not use soap or other products in the creek.

IMAGINE

 Crisp October air in your lungs,

Earth beneath your feet,
