Much of Oklahoma was native prairie. This retreat will take us back to the prairie, where we can learn about its history and its ecosystem. We will spend time in the prairie noticing the grasses, birds and wildlife – the prairie community. And we will come away, having experienced more intimately the prairie ecosystem of which we are a part, with the wisdom that only the prairie can offer and a deeper understanding of how to live in harmony with all life on the planet. Pat Hoerth will lead the retreat. Jane Vincent Taylor will engage us in deepening the story. This is an overnight retreat, so we can enjoy the prairie as it settles in the evening and wakes up at dawn—and so we can see the vast sky full of stars! Lodging options include tipi, tent camping as well as indoors.
