Women's Rewilding Weekend

  • Basecamp Retreat
  • Skills Workshop
  • 4 days; 3 nights
  • 1 to 10 travelers
  • Begins & ends in Weaverville
Most of us are far removed from our ancestral roles and rhythms, but it is possible to come back to them. This is a process some call “rewilding.” Now more than ever, it is vital for us to come together to reconnect, to remember what it means to be human and female, and to explore the path toward rewilding for women. Women have a deep physiological and spiritual connection with creation. All of us have female ancestors who have lived in connection with the Earth’s patterns and cycles. Their daily lives, and those of their families, were deeply reliant on that connection. In these modern times, we organize our lives on our phones, communicate via the Internet, and live in a culture so very estranged from the Earth. In this long weekend of rewilding for women, focus is placed on creating a safe, comfortable, relaxed and fun learning environment in which students with beginning to intermediate skill levels can thrive. We focus on helping each student learn rather than the progression of projects. During this special weekend, we will learn and practice some of the essential, beautiful skills and rituals that have woven us together for millennia. We will gather around a fire; we will harvest, prepare and eat foods from the Earth; we will sing together; and we will remember our ancestors through the crafts that were integral to their lives. Using our hands and hearts, we will connect with each other and with the nature of womanhood.read more
