A Home for the Common Good
The Whidbey Institute is home to the bold seekers of positive change. Our work nurtures and connects people doing uncommon work for the common good. Woven throughout our work is the spirit of the 100 acres of northwest woodland and historic farmstead, which hold and energize everything that happens here.
It's their mission to empower, connect, and inspire individuals and organizations through programs which foster personal development, nurture community connections, and address social and environmental challenges.
They envision a thriving, engaged network of people empowered to create a vital, sustainable, and collaborative culture—one which recognizes and nurtures both the human community and the natural world as integral parts of a whole.
Their annual events and signature programs are catalysts for innovation and collaboration across diverse communities and sectors of society. Smaller retreats and gatherings provide an opportunity for mission-driven groups to dive more deeply into connectedness with each other, with themselves, and with the land.
