A natural place to grow your peace skills

explore with us …

Experience more connection, compassion and peace with Life World Reconnect, a natural place to grow your peace skills.

We are a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 tax exempt organization expanding personal and global peace through education and transformative inner work which creatively connects us.

Whether you are a committed peace activist seeking a rejuvenation station or you are wanting more clarity around your potential role toward stewarding a more peaceful world, you are welcome to explore with us.

We recognize and respect the inherent sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation and the other 11 First Nations within the boundaries of the state of Wisconsin. The summer residence of Life World Reconnect is located in the beautiful unceded territory of the Secw├ępemc and Lhedli T’enneh First Nations in British Columbia, Canada.

About Us

Our peace activities occur both in the US and in British Columbia, Canada.
From May through September we offer the following opportunities among the spectacular Canadian Rockies:

  • Nature walks to help connect with and appreciate the natural world
  • Labyrinth walking meditations as a self care practice
  • Compassionate Listening practice (based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg)
  • Liberating the Peacemaker Within: a course to guide you toward understanding and practicing the universal wisdom of great peace makers across spiritual and cultural traditions
  • Art exploration to invite creative expression
  • Campfire conversations centered around what is most alive in you
  • Peace Gardens emphasizing local self reliance and nutritious food
  • HeartFull Journey End-of-Life Guide services

During the winter months (October – April) we are travelers for peace eager to teach, practice peace skills, co-create possibilities for enabling greater peace among the global community, offer art workshops and end-of-life guide services. We welcome inquires about bringing any of these offerings to your community or to house-sit during the winter months.

Our rustic, off-grid retreat is located in Tete Jaune Cache, BC along Highway 16 about two kilometers (km) west of the Highway 5 junction (see map). Beautiful parks and trails throughout the area provide abundant opportunities for hiking and camping. We are about 12 km west of Mt. Robson Provincial Park, a UNESCO world heritage site with the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

An amazing event to witness is the annual salmon run along the Fraser River and various local creeks in mid-August when salmon return from the ocean to spawn the next generation. Wildlife corridors traverse the area. We often see families of black bears, hawks, hummingbirds, pileated woodpeckers, eagles, songbirds, geese, great blue herons, beavers, ducks, river otters, muskrats, weasels, moose, deer and elk.
