Radiance in Reciprocity
a nature meditation retreat

Sensory perception is this ongoing interweavement: the terrain enters us only to the extent that we allow ourselves to be taken up with that terrain. – David Abram


Join us June 9 – 11, 2023 in Oregon’s beautiful Coastal Mountain Range.

What happens when we choose to live in natural currents of reciprocity? Radiance in Reciprocity is an invitation to immerse yourself into a supported, sensory exploration of this query.

Through gentle, contemplative practices – centering reverence, attention, compassion, rest and awe — we will spend our weekend together attuning to the abundance of intelligence and beauty living around us and within. As we do, we will practice opening ourselves more fully to the presence of radiance— a natural, luminous and nourishing force that honors the gifts as well as the responsibilities of interconnection.

The Earth calls us to reciprocity. – Robin Wall-Kimmerer

Radiance in Reciprocity is being held at Coastal Mountain Sport Haus, a small, family-operated, agro-retreat center in Oregon’s beautiful Coastal Range. About 75 minutes from Portland, the land is situated along the Nehalem River and features a wooded trail, rolling meadow, river access, outdoor soaking pool and several options (both indoors and outdoors) for personal, quiet contemplation. Weather permitting we will also enjoy group campfires. Coastal Mountain Sport Haus is located on the unceded territories of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and Clatskanie peoples.
