Seguinland Institute is a collection of scholars, boat builders, artists, social workers, back-to-the landers, and thinkers who gather on a 60-acre homestead peninsula in the coastal woodlands of Georgetown, Maine. We are a non-profit organization (501c3) founded in 2009.
We create experiential college-level programs that combine rigorous academics and immersion in nature with mindfulness practice, visual pedagogy, and a back-to-the-land work ethic. We host Fall semester study-away programs and May term courses exploring “The Good Life and the Great Work”. Students taking courses at Seguinland Institute receive college credit through the University of Maine at Farmington.
Our grapplings with the big questions are heightened and honed by reading great (and humble) books, paddling sturdy old canoes, engaging in discussion, writing tip-top essays, being grasped by awe and wonder, and getting our hands dirty in the garden.
