About Blue Deer Center
Embrace the Knowing of Nature
The world is made up of interconnectedness that binds us to nature. Our well-being depends on discovering with reverence, the vastness and depth of our spiritual connection to all forms of life: plants, animals, trees, rocks, dirt, fungi, mountains, streams, clouds, sky, wind, rain, insects, and birds. This is an experience ingrained in who we are but over time we have forgotten the value of this relationship.
The combined medicine of a sacred place in nature and wisdom traditions is a potent antidote to the alienation that the fast-paced world has taken on our quality of life.
Blue Deer Center is an extraordinary place that takes us back to our intuitive relationship with nature. The center is nestled in the Catskill Mountains of New York on ninety-three acres of sacred land, with the River of Peace (Saskawhihiwine) running through it. This land has been known for millennia to offer unique medicine where conflict is resolved. Blessed things happen here that cannot happen even a short distance away.
Here, people come from all over the world to immerse in BlueDeer's programs-a place to take a pause from the struggle of everyday life to restore, connect with our spirits, and ultimately find balance in our lives by reawakening our deepest knowing of nature.
