Twin Eagles Wilderness School
Happy Autumn from Twin Eagles Wilderness School! Fall is in full force now, as the trees are giving their final dramatic display of colors before dying back for the year. Birds are migrating, squirrels are gathering food for the winter ahead, and here in Sandpoint we've been enjoying clear, sunny days & frosty nights. All of life seems to be preparing for the winter months ahead.
eNewsletter - October 2017
Our fall programs are off to a great start! The young ones have been exploring the land, discovering the joy of community, and learning to quiet down as they hone their senses on the landscape. We just finished our autumn teen rendezvous scout weekend, where our teens pushed themselves to the edge of their comfort zone both internally and externally, as they learned to move as a shadow and discovered ways of accessing inner adaptability and power. Take a look at this quote we just received this morning:
"I just wanted to say thank you for this incredible weekend I had the privilege to experience. I felt peaceful and at home throughout the whole weekend and at the same time I felt more awake and alert than I think I've ever been in my life... I'm so grateful for the challenge."
This autumn, remember that there is support for you and your family. Mother Earth is always right there, as she has always been. And so are we. We're meant to do this thing called life together. All it takes is reaching out. We invite you to come join us for a program or two, as we support one another to live the life we dream of.

Father-Son Wilderness Program
For fathers and their 7 - 12 year old sons
Friday May 4 - Monday May 7, 2018
Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat - Priest River, Idaho
Early Bird discount: Save $100 when you register before October 31!
Imagine taking four days with your son(s), and connecting deeply with nature and your boy(s) through ancestral wilderness survival skills, all within a small "tribe" of other fathers & sons that are like minded with similar values.
Since the dawn of time, fathers and sons have bonded deeply in and with the wilderness. Ancestral wilderness skills have an innate ability to deepen the Father-Son connection like nothing else. This Spring, we're running a very special Father-Son Wilderness Program at Twin Eagles. During this program, we'll make fire by friction, build and sleep in natural shelters, learn traditional hunting and gathering techniques, and track wild animals. Primitive wilderness survival isn't a "Man vs. Wild" scenario, it is an opportunity to build a deep relationship with the Earth. As you and your son do so, you'll find that your relationship with your son deepens in powerful ways.
We'll have facilitated, open heart Father-Son relationship deepening time, and of course opportunities to connect with the other fathers and sons present. Just as our earth based ancestors did, we'll utilize traditional earth based spiritual practices to help facilitate the connection, and have surprise elements too. We're looking for fathers and sons who are ready to open their bodies, minds, and hearts to a deeper connection, have epic fun, and take the time to connect with what matters most.

Wooden Bow Making Workshop
Cedar Springs, Sandpoint, Idaho · For adults and motivated older teens
Friday February 16 - Sunday February 18, 2018
Make your own wooden long bow at our bow making workshop!! Just imagine shooting bulls eyes with your very own handmade wooden long bow. Experience a deep connection to your indigenous ancestors as you discover this ancient art.
During this bow making workshop, participants will learn the skills to build a longbow, how to choose the wood, the tools needed and their use, how to make bow strings, and how to finish the wood. Shooting the bow will also be covered. By Sunday, your bow will be ready to shoot. You will be taught the instinctive shooting method (the same method used by people who relied on the bow in their daily lives). You will leave with a bow and the understanding to be able to build another bow on your own.
