the skills you will learn and the items you will make are often secondary to the experience a step away from the everyday, deeper awareness of nature & our roots, great friendships, time to slow down, and time to focus on that which most interests you. After it's all over many say "That's how we're supposed to live!"

The gathering is held on the shores of Lake Superior on an incredible remote beach adjoining northern forests, Black Ash bogs, grassy campsites, traditional wigwams and a modern ceremonial roundhouse. Skills and topics presented stem from traditional cultures around the world.

We uphold an environment that is family oriented and respectful to all. The key word here is respect. Respect for others and yourself. The gathering emphasizes traditional living skills from many different perspectives. It does this without subscribing to any one belief system, way of living, or ideology. You may join in many different social activities: music and dancing, story telling and trading, or, a variety of light to intense circle discussions. Feel free to spend time alone on the beach too! Come with an open mind, share your ways, and be respectful of others. This is a unique and powerful time when we can come together to acknowledge and admire both our similarities and differences

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
