We shape our self to fit this world
and by the world are shaped again.
The visible and the invisible working
together in common cause,
to produce the miraculous. …..

You are an integral part of a system that is deeper and broader that just your human identity. In this tumultuous time of collective changes, Earth and her community invite IMG_6654you to embrace your soul calling and take up your place that best serves the larger field. To do so, you need support to move beyond limitations, access your innate wisdom and live with radical authenticity.

We all may struggle with old patterns and fearful inner figures who stop us at the edge of fully contributing our gifts effectively in service to the world.  This program, Follow Your Longing: Navigating the Edge of Your Soul Calling, offers tangible experiential skills and practices for navigating this rich and mysterious edge.

Like our other offerings, this summer camping program is highly experiential and is informed by Process Work, Wild Mind™ and Soulcraft™ practices, as well as modern depth psychology. It invites participants to immerses themselves in ancient and enduring earth-based ways of knowing, the poetic traditions, and initiatory rites. You’ll explore these core practices:

  • Communication and direct relationship with nature and Mystery
  • Wild Mind™ as a guide to cultivate innate resources of wholeness
  • Process Work
  • Movement and somatic exercises
  • Diverse ways of knowing
  • Deep imagery journeys
  • Ceremonial council and the building of community
  • Rhythm, silence and songs

The Follow Your Longing program counts as a prerequisite for the Seasons of the Soul Immersion Program in 2020.
