Do you long to deepen your connections to the world around you, exploring the precious mysteries and stories of life all around, awakening your curiosity and wonder…
How can we create a culture that supports that deep nature connection for ourselves, our friends and our families? Can we re-awaken the ‘village’ to help us to recognise and unlock our gifts, and our appreciation of nature, ourselves and each other?
In this experiential, connective weekend, we gently introduce the wisdom of the 8 Shields – a powerful model of nature connection and culture creation, that is inspired by the principles and practices observed in healthy, earth-based cultures around the world.
There are programs for adults and children:
‘The Village‘ is for participants. Through embodying many regenerative, nature-based practices, participants will journey through the 8 Shields cycle and explore how we can re-member ‘the village’ and how we can live in Wholeness with ourselves, the communities we are part of, and the global community of all species.
‘Woodlanders‘ is for children aged 5-11ish, with an adult guardian present at the weekend, either staffing or as a participant on ‘The Village’. This part of the weekend is led by Linda Lemieux with other staff as needed. Linda has run children’s camps in Chagford for many years, and has also led the ‘Foxes’ programme at the UK Art of Mentoring camp.
Through embodying many regenerative, nature-based practices, participants will journey through the 8 Shields cycle and explore how we can re-member ‘the village’ and how we can live in Wholeness with ourselves, the communities we are part of, and the global community of all species.
The weekend is convened and facilitated by Rebecca Card, Peter Cow, Root Cuthbertson and Linda Lemieux alongside an elder and a full acorn team of inspiring cultural healing and nature connection facilitators.
