Welcome to the second annual One Big Circle (OBC) Weekend near Asheville, held during leaf season in the midst of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina!

Join us for a weekend of camping and community at Catawba Falls Campground, just 25 minutes east of Asheville in the Pisgah National Forest. Read the information below to learn about our venue and to register.


Join Us in the Circle!

Autumn Glory

Join us in the beautiful wilds of North Carolina this October as we co-create a sacred space for families to gather, connect, and support one another in an unforgettable lived experience of compassionate community.

During the weekend, we will provide opportunities to live, learn, and love in the natural world. Using Community Sourced Programming (CSP), we envision a space within which anyone can make an offering for learning and connection. At other OBC weekends, these offerings have included sessions about Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Peaceful Parenting, Peace Circles/Restorative Circles, as well as social-emotional games with children, cooperative games, reiki, yoga, tai chi and sand castle building!

We anticipate that this weekend will become a beloved annual Asheville event, and for that to happen, we need you! Come join us in co-creating this profound community experience.
