We acknowledge the traditional inhabitants of these lands including the Nez Perce, Coeur D'Alene, Flathead, Kutenai, Palouse, Cayuse, and Kalispel tribes.

There is no single location for the

Selkirk School of Alchemy.


The location(s) for individual courses reflect the experiential learning environment(s) best suited to the individual workshop, journey, class, or group.


To offer the most rich learning encounters possible,

workshops often involve several locations both indoor and outdoor.

In addition to the stunning public lands and wild spaces that enrich our learning experiences, the Selkirk School of Alchemy also has access to unique resources and facilities in Sagle and Ponderay/North Sandpoint through its founders and resident teachers.
