Event description: The Wild Christ, Wild Earth, Wild Self Weekend Intensive is Seminary of the Wild's weekend introduction to our yearlong Eco-Ministry Certificate program. Communication with the guide through online - Zoom platform. All exercises done outside in the wild nature! Rooted in direct experience, this nature-based, immersive program will help you remember your primary participation in sacred Earth. In the face of profound ecological and social challenges, an ecological awakening is happening among people from diverse communities of faith and spirituality across the planet. This deep and wild intensive is an introduction to the animated and inter-connected conversation between all things.
This program is for those individuals who sense that their old ways of believing, being, and doing are inadequate for the tasks ahead. We invite all who feel their longing to take their unique and vital role in the emergence of a New Story of reconnection.
Seminary of the Wild offers nature-based tools, practices, teachings, experiences, and support for your inner transformation with a band of wild pilgrims and guides as you move toward your wild calling during this period of turbulence leading us into profound transformation that Joanna Macy calls "The Great Turning.”
Reclaim a sense of sacred relationship with Earth - Explore themes of incarnation and full embodiment in deep communion with Earth. Participants will experience a re-enchantment taking a deep dive into the innate and hidden resources of their own intimate belonging to the world.
Remember your own wild authenticity - Explore your own hidden wholeness, the "treasure hidden in the field" of the Wild Self, encountered through parables, dreams, deep imagery, shadow work and Self-healing practices.
Rewild your spiritual life - Reckoning with the ways your beliefs may have been formed within a religious system that colluded with colonizing and patriarchal agendas. An ecospiritual lens offers access to the Cosmic and Wild Christ as a path to a spirituality that is integrated with the natural world.
