From the moment Karl and Pat stepped on the 60 acres in Alexander, NC, they felt a deep connection with the land. Much of our journey at wildernessFusion is about creating and embodying place. The land is abundant in history and medicine. The French Broad river is the 3rd oldest river in the world, older than the Appalachian mountains it passes through. It travels over 200 miles from North Carolina to Tennessee where it feeds the Tennessee River. This rich land along the French Broad river will be a place for all of the wildernessFusion community. The property held the first wildernessFusion class on March 1st 2019.


We look forward to convening and manifesting here for powerful transformation.
