Twin Eagles Wilderness School
eNewsletter - November 2016

Greetings from Twin Eagles Wilderness School! As autumn gives way to the short days and long nights of winter, the air we breathe is cool, crisp, and clear. Mountaintops are covered in snow, and the valleys are just now seeing the first snowflakes. Some birds migrate south, while others begin to flock up for the cold season ahead. How do the changing seasons impact you and your family?

It is a wild world out there folks, what with the election and everything unfolding at Standing Rock. Yet in the midst of this, as always, we're presented with the opportunity to look at the blessings in our lives. We're full of gratitude for the peace of nature, the strength of community, warm fires, and our beating hearts. What are you grateful for today? It's this place of gratitude that forms a foundation from which we can bring our best gifts into the world.

Here is what we have in store for you in this months eNewsletter:

Fall Harvest Report

Fall Harvest

This past month we hosted our twelfth annual Fall Harvest community celebration! We had a great turn out from community members in Sandpoint, Spokane, and beyond, as we celebrated the harvest time together with primitive cooking. Kids young and old feasted on clay baked apples and fresh caught rainbow trout, ash cakes, wild berry muffins cooked in our own handmade rock oven, and we even made our own wild elderberry syrup, all right here on the land using primitive cooking methods that our earth based ancestors have used for tens of thousands of years.

We wove cattail dolls, sang songs of gratitude, played raucous games, had timeless wanders on the land, discovered tracking mysteries, and wrapped the bundle of the day with The Giving Circle, a simple ceremony of thanksgiving that unified the hearts of our whole community. It never ceases to amaze me how simple and powerful these old practices are, and what good medicine they offer to us in this modern day and age.
