Twin Eagles is Celebrating 10 Years!!!
I can still remember the butterflies in my stomach as Jeannine and I held our first ever parent meeting for Twin Eagles Wilderness School ten years ago. It was the summer of 2005, and we had gathered a handful of parents together at our local farmer's market to share our vision of deep nature connection mentoring, and the idea of starting our first program here in Sandpoint, Idaho.
Free Community Event!
Despite my anxiousness and nervousness, I was able to speak powerfully about the possibility of a community coming together around the teachings of the Earth. About deep nature connection and mentoring, about becoming fully alive through holistic sensory engagement, about community based rites of passage, cultural restoration, deep inner tracking, and authentically changing the world for the better one person at a time in the same way that our lives had been changed.
Our message was received, and indeed we started our first program with a dozen home schooled kids.
Now, ten years later, I am so proud, so humbled, and so grateful to look back at the thousands of lives that have been touched and changed by our work of deep nature connection mentoring, as our vision thrives!
So it is time to celebrate!!!
