Retreats and Experiences

As part of the School of Nature and Climate’s Earth Service programs, Retreats and Experiences reach out into our local communities and spaces, to engage in deep learning and sharing. We work with experts and leaders in various communities on our road trip exploring local environmental and agriculture issues, we connect with our own spirit and connection to nature through the Nature Based Leadership Training, and we connect to country with first nation mobs locally and up north in Arnhem Land. Join us on a deeply nourishing and life affirming journey.

Upcoming Retreats and Experiences:

Nature Based Leadership Training

This course recognises and builds on contributions from ecology, indigenous wisdom, environmental studies, eco-psychology, spiritual traditions, and place-based education, synthesizing and applying them to our local context.

Nature-based leadership draws on these and other disciplines to nurture leadership in all aspects of society, with the aim that people in all relationships—with themselves, others and the Earth itself—contribute to a healthy, peaceful and regenerative present and future.

CERES is working with the Mapuru community on Covid safe planning for visits in mid-2021. Watch this space for updates on dates and contact us to be placed on the waitlist for announcements on upcoming trip places.

Previous Australian Road Trip

We travel via coaster bus, setting up our own camping accommodation along the way. When visiting properties and communities we make a contribution to current projects and get involved in return for some sit down conversations about the triumphs and challenges faced. We eat local produce, learn local ways, and connect with the land and amazing people doing inspirational things.
