Breitenbush Retreat and Conference Center is a place of timeless beauty nestled in the ancient forests of the Oregon Cascade Mountains.
Abundant hot springs, pristine river, bountiful organic vegetarian meals, daily well being programs and historic lodge and cabins provide a safe and potent environment where people can renew and evolve in ways they never imagined.
Breitenbush is off the grid, producing it’s own electricity and heating all facilities geo-thermally. It is cared for by a community dedicated to living mindfully in the spirit of love, unity, honesty and service. Come for a workshop, personal retreat, or just the day!
Peter writes, ““The thing that blows my mind about Breitenbush’s current human community is that we, this eclectic group of eccentric people, are able to function so well in so many critical areas. We operate an entire small town in the middle of the wilderness, including making our own electricity and heating our buildings with hot springs. We maintain enormously complex technical systems. We govern ourselves through an enthusiastic democratic process in which the power structure is circular, not pyramidal. We greet and serve 20,000 guests per year, and feed organic vegetarian mega-meals to everybody. At times we’re contentious, but we maintain high standards. It’s a happening scene.”
