AMS Peace Retreat
Living Harmoniously with Nature
October 2 – 5, 2014
Fall Creek Falls Inn
Fall Creek Falls State Park
Members of the AMS Peace Committee, along with attendees from all parts of the United States, took a break for a serene and refreshing weekend in beautiful Fall Creek Falls State Park.
The topic of the retreat, “Living Harmoniously with Nature,” included conversations and reflections around environmental awareness along with hikes in the Tennessee countryside. There was plenty of singing as well! Participants created a gentle and fluid connection with nature that is sure to follow them back to the classroom and help them educate for peace across all grade levels—and earned up to 19 hours of AMS continuing professional development in the most peaceful and relaxing way possible.
The retreat was led by Betsy Coe, and Patti Yonka. Get a flavor of the retreat by viewing the PowerPoint.
