White Deer Lodge


White Deer Lodge is our Healing Space in Gardner. Our land is a beautiful oasis of the natural world.We have a Medicine Wheel, an Apacheta, and Sweat Lodge. The original owner of the land was Jesse White Deer. Jesse purchased the land from the government in 1858. He was one of the first Native Americans to own land in this area. Jesse was a member of the Shawnee tribe. His spirit and the spirit of his ancestors are very present on the land.

White Deer Lodge is adjacent to our home. It is the place where we do our work and teachings. The Lodge has a 22x22 meeting space that is heated and air conditioned with lighting on dimmers. The Lodge also includes a small comfortably furnished lounge area outside the meeting space, a small kitchen that includes a beverage station, a small refrigerator, a microwave, and a table for food. There is a bathroom with a composting toilet. Outside the Lodge is a deck with seating for breaks and outside gathering.
