Acorns to Oaks: Rooting in Connection & Sharing Our Gifts

Acorns to Oaks: Rooting in Connection & Sharing Our Gifts

Friday, February 2, 2018 - 12:00pm to Sunday, February 4, 2018 - 5:00pm

Co-sponsored by Black Mountain Circle

Join us for this unique and important weekend gathering especially designed to support young leaders and change-makers (ages 20-35) seeking to BE a response to the needs and opportunities of this time and to serve as catalysts for change for a thriving future. Together we will ask, “What are the unique gifts we bring as young adults? How can we contribute most effectively in this time? What do we need to thrive and serve amongst uncertainty and turmoil? Where do we source and anchor ourselves in order to take most effective action?”

Time in circle, small groups, and individual reflection will be interwoven with reconnective practices on the land, music, and gathering by the fire. Throughout, we will explore the interplay between being and doing, self and the collective, and urgency and slowing down, as we gather renewed perspective, insights, and support for the deepest stirrings of our hearts.

Meals: 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts provided. Please bring your own lunch items.

What to Bring: Sleeping bag, tent (for sleeping outside, Clem Miller has indoor accommodations), journal, clothes for all kinds of weather and hiking, water bottle. Food for lunch plus any additional food/drink items desired.

Clem Miller Environmental Education Center 

Named after Clement Woodnutt Miller, the United States Representative who authored the legislation to establish Point Reyes National Seashore. The Clem Miller Environmental Education Center is located in a secluded valley in the Phillip Burton Wilderness just two miles from Limantour Beach. The Center accommodates up to 89 overnight guests in five spacious dormitory-style cabins furnished with wooden bunkbeds and mattresses. The cabins are solidly built of pine and have an open-beam design and ample skylights but no electricity or running water. Bed linens are not provided; each guest brings their own warm sleeping bag and pillow. Facilities include a large cedar lodge with dining room, science library/classroom, indoor woodstove, and commercial kitchen.  The Center is wheelchair accessible and designed as a model of ecological sustainability with composting and recycling systems and a bathhouse with private, solar-heated hot showers. While there is no internet or phone service; there is a large central meadow, a campfire center, and immediate access to hiking trails.
