... a place apart from the pace and pressure of our times
... a place for renewal of the human-earth relationship
... a place to recover a sense of the sacred
Timberlake Earth Sanctuary is a unique place of beauty graced with sunlit meadows, shimmering ponds, and woodlands of tulip poplar, dogwood, and pine.
A place where mists rise off ponds in the early morning, where a resident blue heron flies overhead, and where barred owls speak every night. It is a place where deer, raccoon, and other wild creatures make unexpected appearances on land protected in perpetuity under a conservation easement with the Conservation Trust of North Carolina.
A place where the natural world inspires creativity, evokes wonder, and fosters healing of mind, body, and spirit. Time unwinds, wheels stop spinning, and thoughtful ideas emerge in this sacred space for group and private retreats, weddings, reunions, special ceremonies, and seasonal celebrations.
Of Timberlake Earth Sanctuary author Thomas Berry said, “It is a place of magical moments where everyone who comes will receive exactly what they need.”
