Did you know that spending time connecting with nature has been medically and scientifically proven to treat stress-related illnesses?   From increased cerebral blood flow to stronger immune defenses, there is loads of research about what happens when we relax, unplug and open our senses to the natural world.  


Toadstool Walks is teaming up with The Venture Out Project for a long weekend of Relaxation, Restoration, Rejuvenation, Reconnection on 40 acres of land not far from the Columbia River Gorge in Washington. This is for folks looking for some downtime in a Natural setting in Queer Community. Whether you love the outdoors and are looking for a different way to engage with nature or are simply looking to unwind and connect.

There will be a series of structured daily offerings to support deepening our relationship with nature, each other and with ourselves. All offerings are optional. This is a time to recharge and recollect whether that means unplugging for a bit, sleeping, relaxing in the hot tub, journaling, storytelling, or just being, this retreat is intended to hold space for that.
