Reed Schaefer ’22
Major: Political Science
Reed spent this summer at Terramuse, a not-for-profit spiritual retreat center outside of Mechanicsville, Iowa. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Terramuse was not able to host group retreats or spiritual health classes. As a result, his main responsibilities were to take care of the premises inside and outside the center. In addition, Reed worked alongside the manager, completing tasks and getting an understanding of what it would look like to manage a retreat center for mental healing. Reed lived on-site and developed a deep connection with Terramuse, the surrounding nature, and within himself.
