Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program
The first month at this year's Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program has been an incredible journey. Already, participants have discovered a whole new possibility of what it means to connect with the natural world through activities like sensory immersion, bow and drill firemaking, mind's eye mapping, wild edible & medicinal plants, bird language, and natural caretaking. Not to mention a week long Art of Mentoring experience held by over twenty staff that facilitated an inter-generational, nature based, annual gathering of renewal.
What touches my heart the most though is the sense of hope I feel in my body as I witness this year's crew begin the journey of discovery. Already I've seen each individual's heart light up as they enter the deep nature connection mentoring experience here at Twin Eagles. It is like there is a certain part of them, a child like part, that has been freed to express itself fully. For some it is expressed through rubbing sticks together to make fire, for others in the richness of brewing up medicinal concoctions, and still others in the freedom of wandering the mountainsides. For each of them it is a renewed connection to their authentic passions, resulting in authentic, bright eyed inspiration and living life fully. For that I am grateful.
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.
