The Wildwood Path is a nine month learning journey for women and/or trans* folks with a desire to learn the ancient skills of wilderness survival, nature connection, and earth-based ceremony. A small circle of committed members gather monthly for weekend workshops to learn “primitive” skills, practice naturalist competencies, and craft ceremonies to honor the initiations and rites of passage that mark important thresholds in our lives. Supported by a group of experienced mentors and elders who link this circle with the broader world of deep nature connection mentoring, participation in The Wildwood Path is a life-changing experience that gives individuals the concrete skills to feel at home within the abundance of the earth– and the confidence to share these skills with others in order to regenerate healthy culture and nature connection in support of a beautiful, livable world.
People of diverse ages, ethnicities, careers, backgrounds, and levels of experience join The Wildwood Path. We all share a thirst for deep nature connection and identify as women and/or trans*, and we work to connect across differences and learn from one another and the natural world as part of our re-wilding journey together. You are welcome with us!
Most classes will be held at Paridae Grove in Unity, Maine — with occasional trips to other central Maine locations and ecosystems within an hour of our home base!
