Fall Harvest 2012 was a huge success!
This past month we hosted our eighth annual Fall Harvest community celebration. We had a great turn out from community members in both Sandpoint, Spokane, and beyond, and we celebrated the harvest time together with primitive cooking. Just imagine fresh caught rainbow trout cooked over woven willow grills, fresh bread baked in a rock oven, elk steaks cooked over a flat rock, and several varieties of wild crafted herbal teas brewed over the open fire - it was delicious, but even more tasty was the community connection. We gathered together at the end of the day for a simple earth based ceremony called the "Giving Circle", where each member made a contribution from the natural world to a beautiful mandala-like circle that represented our collective gratitude. We shared from the heart what we were each grateful for, and indeed hearts were touched by the power of our community coming together around thanksgiving.

Long ago I used to not think that much about coughs. I just never really got them. When I gave birth to two little boys the coughs started coming in. I initially would worry about them and wonder if those coughs would ever take a hiatus until I learned that a cough is actually a good thing.

And thankfully there are simple herbal cough remedies for them, too. First, let's take a look at the benefits.

Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program
This past month at the Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program has been full of adventures. Amongst other highlights, we traveled to Moses Lake sand dunes for our autumn wildlife tracking expedition. This area is known as a "tracker's playground" and is a magnet for wildlife and ecological diversity. It never ceases to amaze me how powerful a tool tracking is for expanding people's awareness. Coyote, beaver, white tail deer, muskrat, crayfish, mink, oriole, kingfisher, gull, and many others each left their marks on the landscape, combining like chapters in a book to deliver one of the greatest stories ever told. Unraveling this mystery proved all engaging for everyone, and we each left only wanting more.
Building and sleeping in natural shelters, visiting one of the finest stands of dogbane for cordage material collection, coal burning bowls and spoons, and hand drill firemaking are a few of the other adventures we've shared in this month. The journey continues...
If you're interested, we encourage you to reach out, or better yet, come out for a visit and try a day for free. Lots of info about the Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program is available online here.
