Program Content

The scope of the learning experience in LIVE ECO Retreat will encompass essential components of natural health, mindful living and sustainability including farming and housing. The approach of the program will focus on recovering our basic relationships with our body, land, life forms, natural environment and things that use in our daily life rather than technologies or skills.
Natural Healing
The human body has a profound capacity to heal itself. By tapping into this natural healing power, we can manage our health in a simple, more natural way. With the enormous burden of healthcare costs, the ability to manage one’s health will have considerable impact on an entire community.
Mindful Living
Mindfulness is emphasized as the foundation of all meaningful change in personal lifestyle. Key elements of a healthy lifestyle such as nutrition and physical and mental exercise will be taught. Learning in this subject area will help the participants improve their health and be used by the participants to help others create positive changes in their lives.
Participants will learn the basic skills to grow vegetables, trees and animals and sustainable housing with minimum use of energy and space. This subject area can be expanded to more advanced technology for sustainability such as renewable energy, waste management and water recycling.
Program Location and its Environment

ECO Learning Center will accommodate all activities in the retreat, supporting a wide variety of learning experiences.
  • The tiny houses along the riverside behind the Learning Center building will provide a unique living experience for mindfulness and sustainability.
  • The ECO Farm across the river provides hands-on learning and practice for sustainable living, including organic farming, waste management, and renewable energy.
  • The trails along the river provides environment for reflection and healing by connecting with nature.
  • The hills and the native American ruins behind the Learning Center facility offers moderate hiking route with opportunity to connect with the life-supporting energy of the land and the memory of ancient spiritual traditions.

The combination of these elements helps participants deepen their understanding of what they learned and develop their abilities to apply their learning to continue to make changes in their lives and community.
