Our Mission and Vision

At Nine Mountain Retreats we intentionally craft a home space for learning, research and exploration in the realms of human connection, spiritual practice, social change, embodiment and the healing arts. We host, produce and facilitate group retreats, intensives, courses and workshops that support this work.

The aim of our work is to support and engage in the development of global “regenerative culture” – a life-affirming, highly creative human culture, wherein human needs are interwoven with the rhythms and needs of the natural environment, enabling both human and natural ecosystems to regenerate in harmony with each other. To this end, we particularly welcome native and indigenous teachers; to this end, we particularly welcome leaders in social change movements; to this end, we particularly welcome environmental activists, permaculture practitioners and deep ecologists.

Nine Mountain envisions a diverse network of resilient, interrelated communities spanning the globe, supporting a thriving human society that nurtures systemic health, radical self-expression, maintains ecosystem integrity, and inspires reverence for life.
