Women's Wilderness Workshops
We are holding FIVE Workshops in 2019!!


​At the end of each gathering we walk though camp to thank the land at the very, very end, after all the participants have gone home. In 2018 we realized that we only meet with this land during the summer months, though there is SO MUCH the earth teaches us throughout ALL THE SEASONS. We have added seasonal workshops in effort to bring a deeper connection within ourselves to these beautiful changing cycles within the SEASONS of LIFE!


These are PRE-REGISTERED events only, no at gate Registrations ~ Please sign up early!
