"The experience of Earth Return was exactly what so many of us need to help connect more to aliveness, community, and clarity of mind, body, & spirit. The entire weekend was so beautifully and thoughtfully curated with a variety of practices that left me feeling more in tune with myself, with other women, and with the ecosystem of nature around us."
An immersive camping experience where your body and soul can roam free...
Earth Return is designed to bring you into deeper connection with yourself, nature, and a supportive community of female-bodied folks. This weekend event is an opportunity to unplug and unwind. Off the grid in the rolling foothills of East Bend, North Carolina, pitch your tent under sacred pines on over 50 acres of Threshold Retreat and Farm.
Earth Return allows you to design your own adventure from a collection of offerings according to what you need in the present moment. Choose what serves you from yoga, group meditation, contemplation circles, dance parties, fire ceremonies, Qigong, massage, nature walks and more.
You have the option to bring your own camping gear or choose the All-Inclusive experience where your campsite will be set up and all necessary camping equipment provided for you. Part of our mission at Earth Return is to empower individuals to feel confident in their own camping skills.

Threshold Retreat & Farm is a developing community dedicated to practicing and teaching organic agriculture, addressing local food scarcity, and promoting sustainability. The land is a place where people from all walks of life can come together under a common vision for loving each other and the earth well.
Earth Return is an opportunity to practice union and stewardship with the indigenous Saura land on which we are honored to camp. Over the weekend, you receive hands-on experience implementing organic and sustainable gardening techniques so that you can grow delicious produce for yourself. Come dig your fingers in the soil with us and connect with the beating heart of Gaia.
