Listen to your body

Do you feel called to delve deeply into your wild power?

Listen to the Earth

Do you feel her support?

To live or to lead in modern times asks us to be ever wiser and ever braver when it comes to connection, community, and creativity in our daily lives. How can the skills and teachings of the natural world inform our diverse paths as we navigate towards our uncertain futures? The Wildwood Path offers support for people of all walks of life who are longing to integrate deeper connections with nature and culture into their efforts to live regeneratively as individuals, families, teams, and communities.

Join us for a workshop, host us for a training or class, or work with our skilled mentors to create natural development plans and bring support to your unique journeys. The wisdom of nature informs and inspires all of us if we just know how to look, listen, and learn from the wild. How can your path be one of reciprocity and beauty as you work in and walk through this Wildwood world?

 

The Wildwood Path is a community of diverse people with a desire to learn and share the ancient skills of wilderness survival, nature connection, and earth-based ceremony. Our flagship program is a 9-month learning journey for women and/or trans folks in which a small circle of committed members gather monthly for weekend sessions to learn ancient wilderness skills, develop naturalist practices, and craft ceremonies to honor the important thresholds of life. Supported by a group of experienced mentors and elders who link this circle with the broader world of deep nature connection mentoring, participation in any aspect of The Wildwood Path is a life-changing experience that gives individuals the skills to feel at home within the abundance of the earth– and the confidence to weave these skills into their lives in order to regenerate healthy culture in support of a beautiful, livable world.

Who

People of diverse ages, ethnicities, careers, backgrounds, and levels of experience work with the The Wildwood Path at classes, trainings, through private consulting, or in our flagship 9-month learning journey. In order to make this unique culture available to all, we offer womens/trans programs and all genders programs, we utilize an economic model that promotes accessibility and equity, and we work to connect across difference and with complementary community groups around the world so that we can learn from one another as part of our re-wilding journey of regenerative culture. You are welcome with us!

Where

Most workshops and our 9-month program are based at our home base of Paridae Grove in Unity, Maine. We offer workshops and training services around New England and beyond, and our staff are available for remote mentoring or consulting by arrangement.

When

The Wildwood Path offers outdoor classes year round in order to support and encourage deep nature connection for all. Check our calendar or Facebook page for information about upcoming classes, or get in touch to set one up. Our flagship 9 month program runs from October through June, one weekend a month from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.

Cultural and personal support for nature-connected living can feel like it's in short supply in our busy modern world. But in order to have an experience that radically changes our relationships with ourselves, with the wild world of which we are part, and with the spirit that connects us all, it only takes a small commitment, a supportive community, and a few dedicated mentors. The Wildwood Path provides all of these, and will empower you to learn ancient physical skills that lead to having absolute trust in the abundance and support of the Earth around us. Through practicing these skills in a safe and sacred women's circle, we'll be able to witness and support each other as we learn, celebrate, grieve, and grow together. And by reclaiming and recreating ritual and ceremony in our practice of nature skills and in our daily lives, we can ultimately regenerate the healing culture that we dream of and that the world is calling us to manifest. Through learning concrete skills, awakening our native awareness, and building lifelong bonds with friends and mentors, we will witness each other as women as we leverage our knowledge of who we are, why we're here, and how our direct connections to spirit, nature and community support us to bring forth our best selves. Join us for a year of exploring the secrets of the wild Earth that are our unclaimed birthright, the legacy of our grandmothers, and our hope for the future for ourselves, our culture and our planet!
