reconnecting gathering spring 2019
White Feather Ranch, Placerville, California
…I see a time of seven generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again…
With gifted native elders/educators we will participate in a school in the forest, brining ritual, lessons and activities to use in the classroom through dialogue, story, art, food, ceremony and healing practices for daily life.
We will find our pine tree, gather materials and weave pine needle baskets honoring the "basket" at every level — outwardly a container for objects, inwardly a metaphor for receiving new thinking, feeling, and doing out of the values that support individuals, students, community and our mother earth.
We will live into the profound primal wisdom of original people — all so needed for the planet to survive today: reciprocity, reverence for and connectedness to all life.
White Feather Ranch Retreat Center, at a site of ancient Native grinding rocks, is an hour east of Sacramento in the Sierra foothills.
There are rustic ranch style accommodations and 70 acres for camping.
The program includes campfires, a chance for sleeping under the stars, a sunrise ceremony on Sunday followed by practical indications for our teaching curriculums.
