One River Mission

One River Wisdom School honors the human religious impulse without promoting any specific religion. We offer a safe haven for spiritual exploration, both intellectual and contemplative; a place where doubt is welcome and questioning is encouraged; where friendships are forged through shared inquiry rather than shared answers; and where community is rooted in learning, conversation, and contemplative practice.

One River Retreats

One River Wisdom School retreats are held at St. Mary’s Sewanee in Sewanee TN. While the specific content changes from retreat to retreat, each gathering is grounded in a set of core practices drawn from Mindfulness, Qigong, Self–Inquiry, and Focusing. To these we add the study of sacred literature, and in this way help you cultivate wisdom within a cohesive frame.
