Connecting to Nature and Building the Village (Sweden)

Summary information

Do you long for a deeper connection with yourself, with your community and with the wild world around?
Are you looking for a more profound sense of belonging to yourself, your family and your community?
Do you dream of living in a nurturing village where everyone has a close, vibrant relationship to earth?

In this weekend we journey through the universal map of the 8 Shields, deepening our relationships and sense of belonging through powerful experiential practices. We introduce you to a bundle of tools and processes that open your heart and your mind, awakening your pathways of connection.
We will experience deep nature connection and conscious culture, sharing some of the wisdom and practices that have been gathered by Jon Young and the 8 Shields Institute over the last 30 years from their research with indigenous cultures around the world. We will explore how we can remember the village and live in wholeness with ourselves, the communities we are part of and the global community of all species.

Over the weekend we will play wild and gentle games, practice nature connection mentoring, support our path of connection, tell and listen to stories of wonder, slip into and embody nature, deepen with ceremony, acknowledge our ancestors, explore our inner world, dive into the wilderness of our secret spot and get an overview of the 8 Shields cultural 'map'.

Participants will leave with:
Tools for connecting themselves and others to nature more deeply.
Insights into creating connective groups and events for their life and work. An experience of deep group and personal connection, and an understanding of how it happened within the context of the ‘village’.

The workshop will be led in English by experienced British and Swedish facilitators, with an international support team. A translation into Swedish is possible.
