I no longer have a fear of meeting new people. I met some amazing girls in this class. I thought that they were going to be mean and when they weren’t I realized that my fear was silly. - Inanna

Course Description:

Adolescence is a time of profound changes, making it an incredible opportunity for transformation and growth. Girls start experiencing deeper thoughts and emotions as their bodies, minds, and perspectives on life are maturing. They may start to distance themselves from close family members and old friends as they begin to part from their childhood identity. Simultaneously, they are consciously and subconsciously absorbing societal concepts of what it means to be a woman. They may start to experiment with new ways of being through new friends, social media, make up, different clothing, and so on. Here at Wildheart, we want to offer them another way to explore the transition they are experiencing. Girls will be empowered to bring self-awareness to the process and their corresponding new emotional and behavioral patterns. Instead of simply imitating ways of acting that they have observed in their friends and the culture around them, they will have the choice to form their own unique understanding of womanhood. Our culture has all but forgotten the importance and power of community support during times of great transition. Many indigenous cultures have created rites of passage for adolescents to support them in entering the next phase of life. Although these ceremonies are all different and relevant to the particular culture from which they come, they almost always take place in nature.

At Wildheart, we have experienced the power that nature has to transform, heal, and empower young people. We also understand the power of mindfulness practices to help clear the mind, nourish the soul, and encourage an intentional direction in life. In this transformational three months, we will incorporate the elements of nature, mindfulness, play, and intentional rituals to provide an opportunity for inner deepening. We will be accessing the wisdom of our ancestral grandmothers, making plant medicines, and weaving with natural fibers. We will be connecting with the deep and profound stillness that allows us to be fully present and fully ourselves. We will celebrate life through creating earth art and body paints. All the while, the girls will be inspired by one another in a safe and supportive group setting. Journey with us into the wilderness as we discover what it means to be an empowered young woman.
