Our guiding purpose
To serve as a home for ongoing inquiry, learning, and transformation in response to the unprecedented challenges of our time.
To cultivate place, nurture community, and co-create experiences which grow our human capacity for compassionate, courageous action.
People and communities wholeheartedly meeting
the complex challenges of our time.
Members of the Whidbey Institute team commit to honor these community equity principles and invite all who come here to do the same.
Our 108-acre woodland campus has served as a home for transformative learning since 1972. We partner with a vibrant network of program leaders working in the areas of generative leadership, ecosystem vitality,
community resilience, and more.
We exist for those who sense the urgency and responsibility of this moment—this world in turmoil, and this culture in transition.
Our integrated gardens and forest ecosystem, four mile public-access trail network, and locally designed and built facilities invite nature connection and serve an engaged, growing community.
With capacity to lodge up to 45 participants, our campus effectively supports multiple small groups gathering concurrently, larger groups of 45+, and summertime camping for groups including youth engagement.
