Hello Retreater,

We are so pleased to be hosting Centering Community at Tomorrow River Homestead. This retreat is the culmination of two years of following our hearts to a place that centers us, that is centered around community and that which engages community growth.

With you joining us, we hope to exchange ideas around the topic that define us: how we choose to live. We knew before moving here we wanted access to things that were authentic, slow, thoughtful and kind. Seems lofty, but when you apply these notions to daily life it really starts to make you think… Is the food I am eating slow? Are the folks I engage with authentic? Am I thoughtful in my consumerism? Are we doing our best to be kind to the planet and ourselves?

Lucky for us we accidentally moved to a village we call our “Unintentional, Intentional Community”. Over the course of the weekend you will get to meet and work with folks who ask themselves these same questions. They also happen to be our neighbors!!! Honestly, it was a surprise to us too that we could happen across such a thoughtful community dedicated to the real work.

We look forward to hosting you and sharing how we are cultivating a low-waste, diy, feminist driven space in Central Wisconsin!
