Welcome to the Hermit's Grove

We are a non-profit, educational center with space for new herbal gardens and sacred land in SE Minnesota, just west of Houston, MN, founded by Rev. Paul Beyerl and his partner, Rev. Gerry Beyerl. We offer on-site classes, workshops with access to 11 acres. Over time we will once again have gardens and a woodland containing many species of herbs, fruit and flower; memorials of trees, plantings and bells for those who have passed over; a Stone Circle for meditation and solitude; and facilities for student research. The School of Healing encompasses courses, workshops and educational programs offered at The Hermit’s Grove. With students throughout North America and a strong following of Beyerls’ books, we wish to serve our numerous and diverse students.

The Hermit’s Grove is an educational division of The Rowan Tree Church, housing the Church’s library, offices for the administrative, educational and publishing programs; and caretaking the 11 acres of land which belongs to The Rowan Tree Church
