The Land

We would like to acknowledge that Earthdance is situated on the traditional territory of the Mohican ~ People of the Waters that are never Still ~. Specifically, the Stockbridge-Munsee Band, who were removed Westward and many of whom now live on a reservation in Wisconsin. 

It is important that we recognize our place within the ongoing process of colonialism and also that we appreciate this sacred land, spaces, and energies present here. Find out more about the history of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band here.

Earthdance sits on 125 acres of wooded land that extend seamlessly into a great expanse of forest that includes an Audubon wildlife protected area and Deer Hill (whose summit is a pleasant one hour hike from Earthdance). Winding trails that follow the whispering sounds of trickling water make for delightful adventures into the forest. In the winter the snowfalls are immaculately pristine, providing ideal conditions for snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing and sledding. In the summer, the woods teem with wildlife and wild flowers, providing a vivid and serene natural environment for camping, hiking and observing nature.

The Setting
Outside the buildings at Earthdance, you will find flower beds, vegetable gardens, meadows, woodland paths and giant old maple trees.
