It is often postulated that women are closer to nature than men. While this is inaccurate, it may be true that we are more aware of our closeness with nature. In this vital and more-than-human world, we feel our rootedness to Mother Earth and crave to bond more fully with Her. Yet modern, domesticated society interferes with our deep calling to rejuvenate, learn from and participate with the land.
So, what is Relational Rewilding, and how might it apply to your life? While the answers to this may be personal and complex, one definition is that it is a relational response to our loss of wild lands and our own inner wild. This women’s weekend will attend to the loss of our inner wild through explorations and practices that awaken awareness, instincts, intuition and skills. The wild world that developed us still lives within us. Our 300,000 year Homo sapien history informs our anatomy, our fitness, our requirements for survival, our health, our drives, our instincts, our skills, our aliveness, and our relationships with landscapes of Earth. We have a biological design, and our physical and relational needs are shaped by the rest of the living world around us. A weekend is too short a time to fully immerse in the depths our rewilding, but it is a great start or continuation of your journey.
In this eve to Autumn weekend, step into a more relational, grounded, renewed and aware version of yourself with other like-hearted women. Rewild your senses, skills, mind and heart as we meander a montane forest, spend time around a campfire, and participate in other nature-based activities that your soul desires.
Activities and lessons may include:
Time spent individually and in community – playing, learning, connecting and reflecting
Exploring the element of Fire in your life– physically and metaphorically
Engaging in practices to awaken your intuition and naturalist intelligence
Exploring the art of outer and inner tracking
Quieting your mind and learn about your surroundings by listening to the language of the birds
Acquiring basic knowledge of bioregional plants
Food and Water Required: Water will be provided and food is your own choice. We recommend quick field expedient meals such as our Camp Ready Meals or MRE’s. They can quickly be made at our primitive camps and won’t slow down the learning process. You can also purchase food locally once you get here. Walmart and several local eateries are within a close drive away.
Minimum Survival Tools Required:
Overnight Camping gear ( Tent / sleeping bag)
Bring your gear with you. We do not provide you with gear unless you purchase it from us ahead of time. You don’t need much equipment for our courses, though good equipment does speed the learning process up greatly! You don’t have to buy our gear to attend the course, but you need survival gear of equivalent quality.
Length: 2 days | 1 Night
COST: $225 NON-REFUNDABLE! Once you pay, we are holding your spot.
