Nature educator & environmentalist
Join us for a journey of wisdom sharing and empowerment on the land. This course will explore what it means to be an elder in modern western society. It will help you discover your own 'keeper of wisdom' and show you how to make it an active part of your life. For millennia - and intensively in the last 250 years - the role of elder has been eradicated from our society.
