Wolf Retreat for all ages at the Wolf Conservation Center in So Salem, NY



“Wolf is the Grand Teacher. Wolf is the sage, who after many winters upon the sacred path and seeking the ways of wisdom, returns to share new knowledge. Wolf is both the radical and the traditional in the same breath. When the Wolf walks by you-you will remember.” ~ Robert Ghost Wolf

Here’s what people are saying:

“We camped right next to and spent time with the wolves. We had a potluck feast, a bonfire, meditation, music, movement, boxing and also learned about, and gathered plants for herbal infusions. And yes, we howled and were answered by the wolves who reside on the 20+ acres. I can’t even begin to recommend it enough. Amazing in so many ways.”

“What a great feeling to be able to go back into the woods to reconnect to our inner knowing about plant medicine, wild instincts and release what no longer serves us and in the company of wolves!”~ Alex Richardson
