Your love has been etched in my soul

renatadossantos"You both have taught and given me so much whether intentionally or not. Your very minute to minute interactions are filled with so much love and mindfulness, it's difficult to pin point which minute was the most inspiring. I leave this sacred mountain glowingly transformed... whether that is a result of Amber's cooking, the protective veil over these woods, the creek water, the spirit guides, the vision quest, the unknowingly lost and found soul family, the love,  or the mischievous quiet side of Dakota, kind of hard to pinpoint the exact moment that transformation occurred. Your love has been etched in my soul."

About Us

It all began with two children, Amber and Dakota, running through the woods, climbing trees, and exploring nature, one in Ohio and the other in South Carolina.  Little did we know we would meet face to face some forty years later with a shared interest in living holistically, authentically, and with a desire to support others in reconnecting to their truth.

Our Mission is to bring people together to remember the Oneness we share and witness our true potential through experiential workshops, soul-inspired retreats, and through reconnecting with our natural world.
