SACRED WILD SERIES

INTO THE WISDOM OF NATURE


Created in partnership with Natural Mystery School
Six-part series, Wednesday afternoons 2pm-5pm, March 8th - April 12th
 

 

If you would like to get closer with nature but you are not sure where to start, or if you already feel close with nature but you would like to bring it to the soul level, this program is for you.

Do you long to connect with nature in a way that inspires mindfulness, strengthens your intuition and encourages well being in your daily life?  This is a journey deep into wilderness, spirit, and self discovery.  In this series, we blend nature observation with the principles of ancestral wisdom.  We will share core routines of nature connection which you can use in daily life.  We will also go beyond these routines to explore the noumenal experience of being in touch with nature itself.  Our practices include meditations, sit spots, honoring of the seasons and spirits of place, and connecting with the flora and fauna of our piedmont landscape.  Experience silence of mind, gratitude, awareness, and finding personal allies in wild places.  

Each weekly session will be followed by home practices that you can use to deepen your own knowledge of nature and your personal journey into the sacred wild.

 


DETAILS & REGISTRATION

Sessions will take place at the lakeside gazebo pavilion, fire circle, community kitchen, and barn loft. 

Try out the first session: $30
Entire series: $120-$180 sliding scale
