What a year it has been! Dreamer and I just completed our Winter Break Camp out at Skyliner Lodge and it was really fun. In fact, we have been having a lot of fun this year and it’s looking like there is an abundance more to come in the next.
We love teaching earth skills because they are so empowering. In our modern culture, we have become so accustomed to finding what we need in stores and online that we often overlook our fundamental connection with the earth. We often support large companies that use plastics and artificial materials that have a negative impact on our planet. In practicing primitive skills we are interacting directly with the natural elements and in the process we are activating an ancient understanding of who we are and where we fit in the grand scheme of things. We have now taken the power back into our own hands. And we no longer overlook the earth that gives us everything we have to eat, breathe, create, and walk our human walk.
As promised, we will be teaching three new primitive arts workshops for adults this winter. The first is the Rattle Making and Song Workshop that will be happening this Sunday at the HarmonyHouse in Sisters! There is still room to sign up – the cut off is noon in Saturday. In February Dreamer will be teaching a Knife Making Workshop and in March we will be teaching a Knotless Netting Water Bottle Carrier Making Workshop. There are plenty of classes coming up for kids as well! We have Homeschool Classes, No School Days, Spring Break Camp, Bow Making, Drum Making, Mommy & Me Classes, and Summer Camps all up on the website.
Dreamer and I are so excited for this new year and we wish you the very best with yours.
