The Archer Mountain Community, a place for Earth Centred Spirituality, offers an opportunity for you to take some time to stop and explore who you are and where you are on your journey through life. Touch your story, feel the grass between your toes, meet the mountain, smell the earth, taste good food. Come for Sabbatical Time, Individual/Earth Retreats, Reflection Days, Spiritual Direction/Counselling, Daily Meditation, Teacher Inservice. We have an ongoing calendar
of retreats and workshops but can also tailor programs for individuals or groups.

We provide accommodation for up to 6 people in private single rooms and cabins with a possibility of twin share and/or couple accommodation.

He asked the wind, “What should I say?”
The wind answered, “Tell them my story!”
He posed the question to the oak, “What should I say?”
And the answer was the same.
“Tell them my story!
Tell them the mountain story, the human story, the river story,
the indigenous story, the sacred story.
Tell them the Great Story!”
