Deep Nature Connection, Mentoring & Cultural Repair
At Wisdom of the Earth Wilderness School, we are committed to
the cultural transformation necessary for people to connect deeply
to wild nature, to each other, and to their own personal vision and gifts.
We offer short and long-term nature connection programs for children and adults,
in the forests and on the beaches of Salt Spring Island and beyond.
Experience in nature is fundamental for the healthy development and well-being of all children. We offer WOLF Kids and Wild Child school year programs, Wild Teen Weekends, and Youth Camps.
Deep Nature Connection, Survival, Wilderness Awareness and Skills, Rites of Passage, Bird Language, Community, Inner Tracking. We offer a range of programs, from day-long to year round.
Strengthen family and nature connection with our Wild Child program for parents and children ages 3-7. The Art of Mentoring week is a transformational experience for the whole family.
NEWS & EVENTS
Besides our programs, we have free or donation-based events for the whole community throughout the year, such as our Ancestor Feast and Music and Storytelling events.
Consider personal mentoring sessions if you are looking for individual mentoring and support for nature connection, activating your gifts, community building, parenting or relationships.
At Wisdom of the Earth, nature and connection are at the core of everything we do.
We believe that deep connection with the natural world and a sense of belonging in community are foundational to our innate human blueprint, our original design. Our work is to provide experiential opportunities that nourish and respond to the heart’s deepest longings, to draw out and nurture each person’s unique gifts, and to contribute to a regenerative nature-connected culture for many generations to come.
With this in mind, Wisdom of the Earth offers Nature-based Programs, community Events, workshops, and Individual Mentoring for all ages and stages of life. We have programs for Adults, Children and Teens, as well as Family programs. We are especially delighted to be bringing the International Art of Mentoring gathering to our community and to western Canada for the very first time!
