Laughing Waters at Hickory Nut Forest is a special retreat site and community center located on 240 acres in the beautiful Hickory Nut Gorge. Sitting by the tumbling Hickory Nut Creek, this nurturing place provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. All who come here are renewed and rejuvenated, simply by the beauty and splendor of the forest, the creek and the land.
Laughing Waters offers this energizing surrounding for experiencing workshops, events and programs that promote self-transformation, catalyze social regeneration, and stimulate environmental awareness. Our diverse calendar includes presentations on sustainability, organic gardening, healing arts, movement & dance, green/natural building, renewable energy, esoteric studies, yoga, massage and much, much more.
