Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program
Do you yearn to feel like a part of nature rather than an onlooker? Do you feel a responsibility to our Earth? Are you seeking your contribution to the world? Do you want to fully experience nature rather than just learn about it? Do you want to find a community of like minded people? Are you seeking truth, the truth of who you really are?
If you answered yes to even some of these questions, then consider the Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program. It is all about taking the essence of nature and weaving it into our modern experience. It is about feeling the kinship that comes only from roaming the wilderness together. It is about diving deep into the underground of human consciousness, and discovering the hidden gems that await. It is about deep mentoring that brings out the very best of who you are.
The Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program is a transformational, nine month journey that brings back to life the skills and wisdom of our earth based ancestors:
Wilderness Survival & Primitive Skills
Wild Edible & Medicinal Plants
Permaculture & Regenerative Design
Nature Based Mentoring & Cultural Restoration
Bird Language & Native Scout Teachings
Inner Tracking - Know Thyself
This program is a huge step forward on the path of deeply connecting with nature, community, and consciousness.

Deep in all of our roots, there are stories of our ancestors living in healthy, regenerative communities — villages where people of all ages were in deep relationship with the land, each other, and themselves. The Art of Mentoring is a six day, experiential, nature based set of concurrent programs for ages 3 - 103 designed to help us remember these old ways and learn to apply them to our modern communities.
Yes, it takes a Village to raise a child. It also takes a Village to:

"Hands down, the summer outdoor adventure camp offered by Twin Eagles was my son's favorite experience, over and above any art camp, sports camp or other organized activity he has attended. I believe the overwhelming positive response can be attributed to the unique nature based mentoring process Twin Eagles offers children, answering some core childhood needs that too often go unmet for many of today's busy children. This experience is precious"
