July 12- 18, 2019  

This retreat will deeply connect you with the earth + elements. We will spend the week learning to forage responsibly for wild medicinal herbs, connect with plant spirits + energies, make healing remedies, attain greater awareness + connection to our surroundings, make friction fire, learn the basics of tracking in the woods, and more. Colin Richardson from the Maine Primitive Skills School teams up with Tourmaline Center founder, Enya to submerge you in the healing energies of the Maine woods. Last season we made sumac lemonade, harvested balsam fir sap, ate wild mushrooms, watched a meteor shower and swam in glistening waterfalls…in excess of what we learned!
