The Sharpening Stone is an organization dedicated to bringing a deeper understanding of living close to the Earth. We host an annual gathering, as well as continual smaller workshops and events throughout the year. Learning from a large pool of instructors with a wide range of expertise, we are focused on sustainable living techniques and ancient nature-based skills. Deep in the heart of timberland, we are located on a beautiful remote property near Grants Pass, Oregon. We offer a community-oriented, retreat-style learning environment.
