"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. Meet me there." (Rumi)
Imagine a Retreat Center that serves the progressive faith and service communities on a beautiful, historic farm 40 miles south of the Minneapolis/St.Paul area. Imagine a place where individuals and congregations, families and youth can gather year after year and build a connection to land. Can you ponder coming to this serene river valley to meditate, study, play, and practice your faith through a food and justice program that serves both local and global communities?
Rev. Laurie Bushbaum and a small group of early enthusiasts have been doing just this for almost two years. It all started with a dream. A dream that has become a vision, which we can bring to fruition.
The Fields Retreat and Learning Center is now incorporated in the State of Minnesota. We have filed for Federal, 501 c3, non-profit status.
