Rooted in the Christian spiritual tradition and answering the call of our time, the weekly Deep Green Community experience at Inner Sky Hermitage is intended to enkindle the Spirit of God within us and to move us toward the restoration of right relationship with God and the full community of living things on earth. The Deep Green Community welcomes all who have a heart for this discovery of deep connection and desire to promote solidarity and liberation with all of creation. Guests join us in a variety of spiritual practices throughout the year to include common prayer, Creation Care projects, ecotheology lessons, nature contemplation, and shared meals. The creation of a Deep Green Rule of Life and spiritual direction is optional for those guests that want to structure their daily lives around this deeper way of living.
The annual Inner Sky Hermitage nature pilgrimage is an embarkation on a great Pacific Northwest adventure and spiritual journey. The five-day experience includes daily walking, nature contemplation, discussion and fellowship with a small group of seekers. This is a pilgrimage and not a retreat. Daily walking of 8-12 miles towards a final destination with humble accommodations will be the norm. The "Opening the Book of Nature" program will be our guide as we experience and reflect upon our deep connections with God and all of Creation.
