Stephen Sedmak is a retiree who has played countless roles throughout his life, from husband, to father, to businessman. Today, the role he’s chosen is that of apprentice custodian and doorman at Shope Creek Wilderness in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. Shope Creek Wilderness is a place of learning, alignment, remembering and re-awakening, sharing, and where magic lives, dragons and yeti come to play, and children shine.
Shope Creek Wilderness offers to those who choose to come, or come by chance, the opportunity to experience themselves in novel and expanded ways. Their offerings include natural and man made attractions focused on personal alignment and realization of the “true self”. They call their energy based interactions “playdates”. They take full advantage of their forest setting, flowing water resources, the numerous energy vortexes and being in the energetic “apron” of Mount Mitchell, the highest point on the Eastern Seaboard.
