Twin Eagles Wilderness School
Seasons Greetings from Twin Eagles Wilderness School! Here at the Winter Solstice, the days are at their shortest as they nights are at their longest. This is the time of year when all is still and silent, when we're invited to go within and be with the darkness. The moon is also full right now, giving us a powerful reminder that it is through being with the darkness that we can best appreciate the light.

Practices in Peacemaking Adult Workshop
Friday February 1 - Sunday February 3, 2019
Scotia House Retreat Center, Newport, Washington
We don't have to look far to see that the practices of peacemaking are desperately needed in our world today. we can encounter disagreements at each twist and turn of life. Whether it be in our personal lives or in the world at large, gaps and disparities happen because of the nature of our diversity as humans on the planet. No two people are the same and because of that uniqueness we often see things differently. Peacemaking is the antidote that honors diversity and disagreement, yet fosters unity.

Father-Son Wilderness Program
For fathers and their 7 - 12 year old sons
Friday April 12 - Monday April 15, 2019
Cedar Springs, Sandpoint, Idaho
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.

Camp Stidwell, Sandpoint, Idaho
Do you yearn to feel at one with nature?
Do you wish to guide the younger generation?
Are you seeking a community of like minds & hearts?
Do you want to truly discover yourself?
Twin Eagles Wilderness Skills Instructor Training Program is a ten day intensive that provides adults a rich opportunity to immerse themselves in the teachings of the Earth and develop themselves as nature connection mentors. Wilderness survival, wildlife tracking, wild edible & medicinal plants, naturalist training, bird language, nature based mentoring, outdoor leadership, and inner tracking become pathways to a transformational journey of deep connection with nature, community, mentoring, & self.
This experience will give you the chance to slow down and embrace time-tested, ancient practices of connecting deeply with nature and earth based approaches to education that we've been successfully facilitating for nearly twenty years. You'll steep in a culture of nature based mentoring with peers that will feel more like family by the end of the experience. You'll be guided by experienced, gifted, open-hearted mentors to discover your authentic self.
In a fast paced world that is increasingly fostering disconnection, this opportunity is designed from the ground up to holistically develop resiliency, a sense of place, confidence, vision, peace, meaning, leadership, mentoring, and connection. It is an opportunity to build relationships with what is truly important in life.
The Twin Eagles Wilderness Skills Instructor Training Program is for adults with a passion for nature, community, mentoring, and self-discovery who are ready to transform from yearning for deep connection to nature and mentoring, to living a life of deep connection with nature and mentoring.
