Service Description

"The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope." - Wendell Berry HEAR THE CALL? Change-makers, parents, educators, counselors, wanderers, musicians, artists, lovers, fighters, humans…JOIN US You are invited to take part in a practical, playful, potent and purposeful learning around Deep Nature Connection (DNC), mentoring and village building on Friday 16th - Sunday 18th August. We will introduce the fundamental principles, practices and philosophies of DNC, inspired by our own experience and the work of others such as John Young and the 8 Shields institute, Tom Brown Jnr and Nature Philosophy, WildWise and Schumacher College in the UK, immersions in Yolngu culture in Arnhem Land and much more. What greater need has arisen in modern times than our ability to cultivate connected culture? To re-inspire a love of Earth; not as separate, but as the greater SELF. It could be said that we carry within our ancestral memory the innate potential to guide both ourselves and the ones we love into a place of deep nature connection; to help reveal the unique and wonderful gift that each person brings to their place and people. To re-create wholeness. WHAT WILL WE OFFER? During this weekend training , we will combine connected-village culture, needs-based relating, coyote mentoring and a number of other models/approaches to DNC. It will involve hands/hearts/minds on experiences. We will look at games, crafts, skills and stories that activate connected mind states in a natural and purposeful way and build threads to our ecological SELVES. We will also dedicate an evening to creating sacred space, ceremony and rites of passage experiences. A critical element in the village model. And of course, we will make it playful and joyful. A solid step on the pathway to culture repair. Cost for all training: $300 full price $200 exchange (village mentors and volunteers) $150 teens 15-18yrs (apart of village program) Camping Cost $15 per person
