Twin Eagles Wilderness School
Spring Greetings from Twin Eagles! The joy of spring is strong on the landscape, as all of life is growing and changing almost faster than we can keep up with. Robin nests are full of bright blue eggs, baby painted turtles are hatching, wildflowers like trillium, violet, and lady's slipper color the forest floor, and trees like larch, aspen, and cottonwood are leafing out into their brilliance. Morel mushrooms are popping up all over, amidst bracken fern fiddleheads unfurling. What a miracle spring is.

Twin Eagles Women's Retreat
For women 18 and older
Thursday May 24 - Monday May 28, 2018
Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat - Priest River, Idaho
As women, sometimes we fall out of belonging in our lives. Or at times desire for a fresh perspective that will evoke a new direction or renewed approach to our lives. Other times we need to be heard and witnessed with a warmth and protection that might not be present for us in our everyday life. Perhaps we need to name the geography of our life's landscape and the territories that exist there, both discovered and undiscovered. There may be moments of coming into our calling or feeling called to something in our lives that beckons us for ritual and a circling of support.
This spring, we're breaking new ground and offering our first ever Women's Retreat.
The Women's Retreat is a time for stepping into the gathering place of one's body, heart and soul with all of its creative tension, generosity and promise of longing. Mystery, intuition, receptivity, the dawning of imagination, creativity and inner wildness are but a few of the tools for this adventure. We have many constellations of experience inside ourselves. The Women's Retreat is a ritual encounter with being who we really are with all of those revolving stars. A rare opportunity for you to put a stake in the ground for naming your truths and embracing your wholeness, giving way to a wider and wilder way of being.
We invite you to consider this journey to wholeness. Click here to learn more.
Summer Camps 2018 Update
On the whole, Twin Eagles Summer Camps 2018 are now approximately half full. Some camps are now almost full (with waiting lists coming soon), some have just a few spots left, and most camps are about half full. It is likely that some camps will fill up in the coming weeks, so we strongly encourage you to register now while there is still space! Once a camp fills up, waiting lists will be available.
Our nature based summer camps let kids be kids again, giving them the chance to be wild and free. In today's world, kids suffer from lives that have become over-structured, over-sterilized, and over-intellectualized. Children are engulfed in an increasingly disconnected, technological world that leads to the degeneration of health on all levels – physical, mental, emotion, and spiritual. Can you remember what it used to feel like to be a kid during the summer? I do. It was my ticket to freedom. Timeless moments of connecting with the wild places. Friendships deepening until we felt more like siblings. Running through our imagination and nature at the same time. Quiet moments alone just sitting by a creek, letting all the worries of life just drift away. Current research has now proven that these types of experiences lead to increased physical, mental & social health, a sense of peace, care for the Earth, increased concentration, greater creativity and resiliency. As a father and camp director, this is what I stand for, for my own children and for our community's children. Our summer camps maximize all of this, and indeed are good medicine for the challenges today's kids face in our post-modern world, bringing them back to their truest nature.
"I am so grateful and so touched by how all the amazing people at Twin Eagles lovingly walked our son through what has turned out to be, perhaps, the most significant and positive learning experience he has ever gone through away from home. I can't say enough about how lucky we were to find them and have him take part in the last week of their summer program, except to say to them and the universe: Thank you, thank you, thank you."
- Alison Barrows-Young
