Finding ways to get outside and connect with nature have never been more important. Fresh air and exercise can improve your mental health, offer respite from your busy life, and improve physical well-being. Time for meditation and prayer help you to be attuned to the Spirit and attentive to the Divine. All of our programs offer close encounters with green spaces and opportunity for healing and joy.
Join us for an evening of friendship, meeting new neighbours, laughter around a roaring fire. Hosted by our Intentional Community this event is in a safe outdoor space to meet your local community and new friends. No pre-registration is required and there is no cost. Please bring a chair, your singing voice, musical instruments and smile. We can't wait to bring our community together after a very long year and a half of staying home.

Truth and Reconcilation Day
Thursday, September 30, 2021
The Canadian Governement recently santicioned a new federal statutory holiday called National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day provides an opportunity for each person to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools. This may present itself as a day of quiet reflection or participation in a community event. We acknowledge with gratitude this traditional territory inhabited by the Chonnonton people before Europeans settled here. We acknowledge other First Nations neighbours including the Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the the Metis Nation. We seek a new relationship with the Original People of this land based on honour and deep respect.
Grounds for Day Use
Crieff Hills will be honouring this day by opening our grounds for day for use of our trails and outdoor space for free. We hope that each guest can take the time to reflect on the past and learn while walking the grounds that belong to the Original People's. Registration is required upon arrival at our main office.
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Evening Labryinth Walk & Bonfire
We will also be hosting an evening labryinth walk lit up by the light of a bonfire for those who want a more focused way of reflecting on the past and present. You will be given a booklet with information and history of residential schools to read on your walk to the labryinth, and when walking the labryinth please relfect on what you have read. Please proceed to the parking lot in front of St. Luke's Lodge and a staff member will be there to greet and direct you. This event is by donation only, and all proceeds will be donated to a local indigenous based charity.
