The location is in Camrose County, Alberta near Maskwacis on Treaty 6 Territory.

This retreat will aim to be an accountable space for Indigenous folx, Black folx and People of Colour, 2SLGBTQINA+ folx, neurodivergent, disabled folx and anyone who experiences systemic oppression. Anyone who does not respect this and does not wish to practice from an anti-oppressive lens will not be welcomed. This does not mean perfection, but it does mean an open-ness to tending to the impact of our actions in intersectional ways.
