Registration Opens for School of Earth Medicine Fall Retreat


Laura Adrian, of the School of Earth Medicine, announces the second annual Earth Medicine Women’s Fall Gathering, to be held September 27 to 30, at the Whitewater State Park, in Altura. This retreat provides participants the opportunity to go within, connect to nature, celebrate the feminine and meet like-hearted women.

Over the course of four days, attendees get to choose from more than 20 workshops offered by a variety of teachers based in the Midwest and curate their own experience based on particular desires. There are opportunities to experience different modalities including shamanism, sound healing and connection to the cycles of nature, and to practice yoga, qigong and guided hiking. 

After years of experience as a teacher and retreat facilitator, Adrian launched the first School of Earth Medicine in the spring of 2017. “It all started with a simple question,” she explains. “I remember asking myself, ‘What would be worth doing even if I failed?’ Earth-based women’s gatherings was the answer I got. In the fall of 2017 we offered our first gathering… and my friends closest to me knew we were going to do it whether we had one person or 200.”

School of Earth Medicine is a weaving of Earth-based practices such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness, botanical medicine, reflection, connection to nature and shamanism. By offering a variety of experiences, they encourage students to pay attention to the cause and effect of practices to decide for themselves what is useful in cultivating health, happiness and freedom.          

Cost: $349-$459. Location: 19041 MN-74, Altura. For more information, email or visit
