Our New Spa Brings You Rejuvenating Relaxation

Our beautiful new spa and surrounding sun/forest deck are complete! This is our first big new addition to our retreat center facilities and we’re really proud of how it has turned out. Soaking in our heated spring water, you can hear our creeks year-round, take in the stars or woods, and truly bask in the healing powers of nature and hot water.

The spa complex will be open to all attendees of Groundswell Institute’s programs. Now, you get to come learn about activism and art, or celebrate with community and queens, or develop wellness practices, AND spend the evenings soaking and socializing. The spa complex is also part of renting our facilities, for those groups or individuals who might be interested.

Special thanks to Shane, Thor, and many volunteers for all their artisan carpentry, to our hot tub donors who funded the initial work, and to William Stewart and the Groundswell Community for funding the rest.

Groundswell’s website is launched!


A new time is dawning at Groundswell Ecovillage and Retreat Center.


Groundswell is pleased to present its new website. This is now where you can stay in connection with what Groundswell is up to. Over time it will grow as our community and the Groundswell Institute grow themselves. For now, take a moment to look around at the different sections we have created and enjoy some of the spectacular photos of the land. This is an exciting time for us, as we are launching into our first full year on the land.

Check back often for updates to both our blog and our website content. And, make sure to sign up for the mailing list if you haven’t already so you can always be the first to know about Groundswell’s events and programs.
