Twin Eagles Wilderness School
Greetings from Twin Eagles Wilderness School! Here in the season of Thanksgiving, we are feeling especially grateful for the many gifts of nature and life. We're blessed to live in such an abundant community. Nature continues to provide for all our needs, over and over, continually following her original instructions. And what a gift to live amongst such a rich community of humans, as we collectively work towards this vision of a regenerative future, where nature and soul are honored at the center of culture. Indeed, there is much to be thankful for!
eNewsletter - November 2023
The past month has been full of special moments here at Twin Eagles that we're grateful for, from tracking deer, elk, coyotes, bobcats, to the joy of preparing wild foods via primitive cooking, to quiet moments of deep connection to the Earth, to bringing our collective voices together in song. Our relationships with nature, community, family and self continue to thrive!
Remember what is good in life. We encourage you to adopt the practice of thanksgiving not just once a year, but as a daily routine, as a way of life.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." -Melodie Beattie

Girls Rite of Passage
For 13 - 16 year old girls
Thursday May 2 - Sunday May 5, 2024
JDK Ranch, Valleyford, Washington, Washington
The journey from childhood to adolescence is a dramatic time of development. Just like the fledgling bird that leaves the nest, the Girls Rite of Passage is an opportunity for girls to expand their wings and begin to take flight. It's a crossing. A place where two roads meet. Those two roads are where your daughter was once a child and is now emerging into adolescence.
This program is a coming of age ritual that has been taking place since humans have been on the planet. These types of traditions are common throughout the world and across cultures. It's a unique blueprint that stands apart from every day ordinary life and at the same time, brings new depth, understanding and meaning to it.

For mothers and their 8 - 13 year old daughters
Friday May 17 - Monday May 20, 2024
Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat - Priest River, Idaho
Through the mother daughter bond our daughters learn about trust and connection. It's that trust and connection that will take you over the hurdles of life with her. What greater place to foster and strengthen that connection than in the safety, timelessness and healing balm of nature?
Imagine having a time where you and your daughter can retreat to nature to nurture your relationship with one another. Imagine being nestled in a community and the common bond of other mothers and their daughters in the sanctuary of nature. Accompanying you on this adventure are female guides who can hold you and your relationship with your daughters as sacred and support the growth of your relationship when and where it counts. It's a time to really be present to your journey as a mother and to that very special gift in front of you - your daughter.
Perhaps you feel your daughter turning towards a new stage of development or the greater culture around her. At this time your daughter needs that connection with you in an ever-growing and dynamic way. This program will help support that.
If you are wanting more connections and resources with other women and mothers in order to support your daughter in her life's challenges or in helping her walk down those difficult roads she'll take in her life, then this program is for you.
If you are seeking to build a steady bridge for your daughter to walk over as she nears her time of passage into young womanhood, then this program is for you.

Father-Son Wilderness Program
For fathers and their 8 - 13 year old sons
Thursday May 23 - Monday May 27, 2024 (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.
