A workshop of ideas, storytelling, and hands-on field craft exploring.

The relationship that we have with the natural world will come to define how we deal with the challenges we face as a culture. Our ideas of what is possible and how deep the rabbit hole goes is limited by our cultural and intellectual traditions. Aligning our values with those inherent in the eco system that sustains us will be critical to our continued existence as it has been since the dawn of humanity. So how do we edge closer to this state of being?

This will be a workshop of ideas, storytelling and hands on field craft exploring our place in the natural world, the depth of skills and abilities that sustained our common ancestors answering why this increasingly matters today. A workshop of switch flipping, door opening, re-enchantment and practical skills.

Price includes lodging for two nights, farm to table breakfast, lunch and dinner, classes, daily meditation, daily yoga and use of all amenities. Salt pool, spa, hiking trails, river access, orchard and gardens.
