Class Description:

At Wildheart, we’ve witnessed nature’s remarkable ability to instill crucial life skills in young individuals. Similarly, we recognize the profound impact of mindfulness practices in honing essential cognitive and emotional skills.

Throughout this transformative week, we intentionally integrate the facets of nature, mindfulness, and play to cultivate skills vital for personal development. Participants will not only tap into the ancestral wisdom of grandmothers but also acquire practical survival skills like creating plant medicines, forging resilient bonds, heightening sensory awareness, and emergency wilderness survival.

Journeying through the forest becomes more than an adventure—it becomes a skill-building exercise. Engaging in the quiet stillness of nature cultivates the skill of being fully present, enabling participants to embrace their authentic selves. The creation of earth art and body paints serves as a platform for cultivating creativity and self-expression—essential skills in navigating life’s challenges.

The collaborative and supportive group setting empowers girls to inspire and be inspired, fostering interpersonal and leadership skills. Journey with us into the wilderness as we discover what it means to be an empowered young woman.
