The Eureka Institute
The Eureka Institute aims to enhance the lives of our local community and its many welcome visitors by promoting consciousness, creativity, and leadership through diverse educational experiences. Eureka supports instructors, specialists, and students from all walks of life, and is committed to providing life-long learning opportunities. Eureka is a non-profit organization, located in beautiful Bonner County Idaho with lecture halls and offices in Sandpoint (recently named “Americas Most Beautiful Small Town” by Rand McNally and USA Today) and a gorgeous 42-acre retreat, the Eureka Center, right next door in the town of Sagle, Idaho. Surrounded by abundant natural beauty, in the panhandle of north Idaho, we are inspired to cultivate all aspects of healthy living. We celebrate the unique interests of the adventurous, as well as the introspective, by encouraging the growth of the individual and supporting interactive and collaborative group experiences. Come and join us!
