The Blue Deer Center is an important home for the teachings and practices of Heart – ancestral traditions of healing, ritual and retreat which restore connection to self, community and the Natural World. Located in the Catskill Mountains, this land was recognized by indigenous peoples over a century ago as a place of healing.

At the beginnings of humanity our ancestors were given traditional teachings and practices to keep us in good relationship to the divine natural world. These traditions provide not merely survival, but rather a rich, joyous, connected life for ourselves and countless generations of our descendants. Traditional teachings and practices are every bit as practical now as in the past.

The Blue Deer Center is a sacred place and a sacred mission to make the teachings and practices of the ancestors available today. The Center is supported by the living spirit of our land, nourished by the tradition of the Huichol people, and guided by the timeless wisdom of Sacred Fire.

Come experience the natural world from a place of heart and connection.
