Echo Valley Farm is a forty-acre rustic learning center in southwestern Wisconsin, nestled in the Kickapoo River
Valley. The land is ancient and undisturbed by the glaciers that
leveled the surrounding Midwest. Surrounded by rock outcroppings, Echo
Valley derives its name from amazing acoustics. Far from city sprawl,
the skies are magnificently lit at night, welcoming awe and delight.
In Quechua the word ini
(phonetic spelling) means reciprocity. Giving back for what has been
given. It is my hope that Echo Valley represents ini
Throughout my travels, I
have had the good fortune to meet individuals who have understood the
root of healing to be harmony. Harmony of body, mind and spirit.
Harmony with nature and most importantly, harmony within each
individual. From my studies in China as an acupuncturist, to healers of
India, the Andes, and North America, the understanding has been the
diverse, these friends have held fast to the same basic human
principals: kindness, integrity, simplicity, clarity... and the
recognition that we are all one People, one Earth, One God.
At Echo Valley we strive
to champion these human virtues, to make way for their victory in each
heart. That is the ini of Echo Valley. That is my
hope in creating it.
