Spring Greetings from Twin Eagles Wilderness School! The Spring Equinox has arrived last week, and our days are now longer than our nights. Here in Sandpoint, we've still got snow on the ground, but the promise of renewal is emerging on the landscape. The warm low wetlands are bursting forth with stinging nettle and skunk cabbage, and soon our first flowers will emerge. How is spring unfolding for you? Can you feel the subtle difference in the landscape, and within your won heart?

For women 18 and older
Friday May 12 - Sunday May 14
As women, we ache to be who we really are. We are in unpredictable, tumultuous times where we are being summoned to live with the risk of fulfilling that becoming as we embrace our calling, and thus discover how to live into new "response-abilities." This Women's Retreat is a refreshing opportunity to make time and space for exploring the crucible and transformation of the world wholeheartedly, through the eyes of celebration, joy, and the revitalizing of who we truly are.
Stirred by the calling and rhythms of nature, this is an opportunity to step outside of ordinary time into liminal time. This is a space where you can receive the support of a deeper and different way of listening and understanding that becoming in the midst of impermanence as an offering to the world's discomfort, and as a gift given to stepping up to the challenge of the times.

Father-Son Wilderness Program - Full with waitlist
For fathers and their 8 - 13 year old sons
Thursday May 25 - Monday May 29, 2023 (Memorial Day Weekend)
Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat - Priest River, Idaho
Imagine taking five 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.

You'll steep in a culture of nature based mentoring with peers that will feel more like family by the end of the experience.
