One Wild Earth Fall Retreat with Wolves

One Wild Earth, 2018
a Weekend Community Gathering with Wolves
6pm Friday, September 21 to
noon on Sunday, September 23, 2018
at Mission: Wolf Sanctuary, Colorado

Description: This Wolves and Wilderness Experience is a weekend community camping retreat to ignite the heart of compassion. One Wild Earth takes place at Mission: Wolf Sanctuary in the Wet Mountains of southcentral Colorado on the Autumn Equinox. At One Wild Earth we will focus on team building and interpersonal relating with each other and the more-than-human world. We will utilize medicine walks, ritual, and facilitated interactions with wolves to remember our gifts and our place of this world. Through nature connection and intimate experience of community we will embody the medicine of our belonging. Our circle of connection will expand through the weekend to include the wolves, the land, and wolf sanctuary staff as we work shoulder to shoulder, hip to hip, in a sanctuary improvement project. We will explore how our experiences of reciprocity, compassion, and individuality within pack can elevate joy within our lives when we return to our families and home communities.

Date and Time: Arrive to Mission: Wolf between 4 and 6 pm on Friday, September 21, 2018. Our time together concludes at noon on Sunday, September 23, 2018. We will remain onsite throughout the duration of the retreat.

Darkest Night Wild Woman Hike

Free Event
Darkest Night Wild Woman Hike
December 17, 2017 4-6pm
Boulder, CO

This Sunday is our darkest, longest night of the year. We will gather in the evening to observe the sun and dark moon set together in the west then walk into the north for a gentle 2.7 mile hike among coyotes, mice, and owls and watch the stars come alive to our senses. In the safety of our group container and facilitation on this auspicious night we will provoke experience and awareness of a greater depth of being and universal consciousness on the plains. Meet at Boulder Valley Ranch Trailhead. Please dress warmly!

This hike is led by Melissa Reed, wilderness guide and mentor at Wild Heart Revival and visionary at Women Rising Wild.

On this Wild Woman hike we welcome people of all genders with special care and attention to the feminine aspects within us all.
