Ladies Rewilding Series
Spring 2022

$325 (flexible tuition pricing)

Meeting up at parks across West Michigan

Every other Saturday Morning

When was the last time you explored off-trail or got lost in a sunset? Who are YOU as a woman and how are you connected to the earth? We were created to live in relationship with the natural world and in community with one another. Let’s connect with our inner-wild. 

 

In this ladies-only class, we will practice mindset shifts, practical knowledge and hands-on skills. We will connect with the Earth and within ourselves as we practice mindfulness, sensory meditation, and journaling. Our theme for Spring 2022 is wild edibles and medicinal plants. Hand-on skills include foraging wild plants and mushrooms, and processing them into foods and medicines. We’ll nourish our bodies through delicious foods and medicinal teas, tinctures, and salves. Most importantly, we will form a community of women supporting and encouraging one another, committed to reconnecting with nature. Come, rewild with us.

 

* All women (18+) are welcome to join the Ladies Rewilding Group, no matter your stage of life or current societal roles. Nursing infants are also welcome to join in the fun.
