Nurturing the conditions for transformational learning
The Whidbey Institute is a home for transformational learning and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, founded in 1972. Our mission is to nurture the conditions for transformational learning, and our guiding purpose is to serve as a home for ongoing inquiry, learning, and transformation in response to the unprecedented challenges of our time.
We partner with a vibrant network of program leaders working in the areas of generative leadership, ecosystem vitality, community resilience, and more to offer one-day and multi-day retreats. Our 106-acre conservation forest campus on South Whidbey Island features integrated gardens, a four-mile public trail network, and comfortable lodging, dining, and gathering facilities. Our spaces and programs invite nature connection and serve an engaged community.
