The purpose of Flowing Waters Retreat Center is to provide a tranquil place for rest, renewal, education and healing.  The land invites visitors and overnight guests who desire to live in balance with the local ecosystems. The water flows in two directions throughout the year on the landscape and underneath the surface into both the Pikes Creek and Raspberry River watersheds.

The former Belanger Settlement One-room School House, the rustic-quaint farmhouse and other small cabins are available on this land at Soper Rd.  The school house was dedicated for education and used for community gatherings in the Bayfield Township and will continue to be a gathering place for education and community use that serves to connect people with other people and people with the natural eco-systems.

Quietness is remembered...- Listen to the raven, flowers and trees..- They have much wisdom to share ~ Follow the bird’s song..--> Take a walk on Labyrinth to awaken your soul... Hike in the woods and fields among the Apple Trees... Listen to yourself one step at a time...- The stars are bright and paths are a light with the moonbeams...- The moon is fine in the shine of ridge just past the barn... Enjoy your space... Find grace and beauty and love...- Be good to nature and leave no trace, only your footprints and thoughts... Pick up~ clean up~ recycle, refresh and clear the mind and emotions... Welcome to The Farm and become that change that Gandhi spoke of…--> Enjoy the adventure. One breath, one step, one thought and one action at a time, Create your story….in this space, at this place..... Some people suffer from dis-connection and imbalances as a result of our over-active and over filled lives.  Stay a week or long weekend and re-establish connectedness as well as restore balance.
