About the event
Join us for this remembering, as we are invited to discover the meaning of the term Be-Wilder as it is defined by feminist author Mary Daly. She defines this term as "to lead the self and others on pixie-paths that wind deeper into the unknown; to hear and follow the call of the wild".
This residential herbal apprenticeship is a unique opportunity for women to hear the call of the wild and to listen to their own deep wisdom. We will connect deeply with ourselves, the earth, herbal green allies and all that is. Women will have the opportunity to experience living close to the earth while incorporating herbs and wild foods into their daily life. We will create a community of that encourages, inspires and challenges us to look to the mother earth. plant sisters and all that is, for deep healing and wisdom. This program is an authentic apprenticeship where participants are offered support on their own personal journey and encouraged, supported and challenged to journey to their depths.
We will connect with the wise woman within while hiking, kayaking, dancing, harvesting, creating community, crafting traditional foods and medicines, practicing compassionate communication, sitting in talking stick ceremony, exploring nature awareness and learning a wide variety of skills including but not limited to cordage making, basket weaving, broom making, hide tanning and much more!
This program includes guidance on your personal journey, use of our extensive library, materials as well as whole and wild food meals, participation in all other programs being offered during the apprenticeship. Apprentices completing the program receive discounts on future programs as well. This program is for women only, providing a unique space to explore the invisible feminine that our culture often asks us to forget. There may be quest instructors and an opportunity to interact with the community through classes and other events. Participants will be camping during this apprenticeship in order to connect deeply with the earth.
We will be staying at Moonwise Herbs Farmstead in Edgarton,WI. This 1.25 acre property is a permaculture farm located on the edge of town. We raise rabbits, chickens, ducks, bees and many herbs, as well as vegetables to the already established gardens. There is some wooded space on the property and the surrounding area has much to explore. This is a newly acquired property and so we will be working together to add beauty and function, the wise woman way.
