The Art of Mentoring

nature. culture. inspiration. connection.

Because it takes a Village…

The Art of Mentoring is a week-long experience, immersing participants in a living, learning culture of nature and self-awareness. This workshop provides knowledge, tools and practices that enrich relationships and allow participants to create a powerful culture of nature connection in all aspects of their life and community.

Deep in all of our roots, there are stories of our ancestors living in healthy, regenerative communities—villages where people of all ages were in deep relationship with the land, each other, and themselves. The Art of Mentoring is a week-long, experiential, nature based program designed to help us remember these old ways and learn to apply them to our modern communities.

Yes, It takes a Village to raise a child. It also takes a Village to:

  • Engage the gifts of our elders
  • Create essential rites of passage for our teens
  • Ensure parents are supported and thriving
  • Welcome our babies into a world of open arms
  • Feel deep compassion and gratitude for All of Our Relations
  • Understand your gifts and how to apply them in service to the people

Participants leave inspired to implement new models of learning, and are equipped with new skills to create ecological and community resilience.
