    The Good Life Gap Term is a semester spent on a 60-acre homestead in the coastal woods of Maine. Participants will join a community of learners, commune with nature, develop homesteading skills, and practice mindfulness.

    Participants will learn how to immerse themselves in nature, understand food in a meaningful way, cultivate mindfulness, and learn how to embrace academics in a way that challenges ideology and engages in a community-based understanding.

    College courses included with the Good Life Gap Term: Living the Good Life (4 semester credits in philosophy or religion), Radical Love for the New 21st Century (4 semester credits in English), and The Creative Life (2-4 semester credits in the Arts). 

    You will stay in cottages/tree dwellings/tents throughout the program, where you will house with other participants. You will also grow, cook, and eat homegrown/foraged food and learn about bread baking, pickling, and fermenting.
