Located near the Quabbin Reservoir in central Massachusetts, and surrounded by 4,000 acres of state-protected forest, Earthlands’ private setting is ideal for a broad range of gatherings. Far away from the hum of vehicles and the business of modern life, Earthlands lends itself to deep personal reflection, group development, and self-directed learning with the Earth.
Earthlands has served as an Earth-based education facility and a retreat center for personal transformation programs for over 25 years. With its wide range of accommodations and amenities, the property has supported college and university courses; retreats for organizations and individuals; festive seasonal gatherings; conferences, trainings, and workshops. The Lodge is also home to the University of the Wild.
Earthlands is located on Nipmuk land of the First Nations People. It was relatively peaceful territory for over 8,000 years. Evidence of this Earth-connected culture still stands, at the Equinox Underground Chambers*. The blend of ancient stonework and recent installations of a Medicine Circle, Seven-Circuit Cretan Labyrinth, cairns, and standing stones add to the sacredness of the property. Early European settlers removed the primitive forest around 1730. Many Colonial-era trees remain.
