    The work of land justice in Maine calls for our best selves. It asks for our individual, personal sustained commitment beyond projects and job descriptions and calendars. What yearnings feed and sustain this work for you? While the work of First Light is new, we know it is filled with both great joy and great challenge. What are the motivations that inspire it; how do we nourish each other to stay at it?

    This is a 3 night/four-day camping experience on the Downeast landscape that initiated Peter Forbes who will be joined by others in First Light to guide us with provocative questions, good facilitation, and a beautiful place to do creative, sustaining things together like carve, fish, explore, recommit to the work and to each other. No matter if you are new to First Light or have been part of it for many years, this time will help to sustain the questions and motivations inside of you for years to come.
