Event description

Description

97% of climate scientists agree: Human activity and carbon pollution are warming our planet and throwing natural systems out of balance. For those who love Mother Earth, it’s easy to feel disempowered in the face of this global crises. What can WE do to correct this world-wide problem?

Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project and Pachamama’s Project Drawdown provide knowledge and inspiration to pursue the 100 most substantive solutions already available – and this retreat offers both of these programs! Through a mixture of lectures, group exercises and meditations, attendees will realize their power to be active stewards of our precious planet!

The price for this retreat includes all meals. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know. As a general rule, we prepare organic meals, including farm fresh eggs from our chickens! Meat is served on the side (for vegetarians) and gluten-free options are served as well. Lodging is not included because some of our attendees are local. Out of town guests are encouraged to stay at Oracle Campus at one of our guest houses or in our campground. After you book your retreat, you will receive a discount code for accommodations, which you can use to book a room or campsite at www.OracleGuests.com.
