The vision for the event is to create sacred space for women to go within, reflect, rejuvenate, explore, heal, and transform in a variety of ways. We want to offer a variety of workshops for women to choose from that include movement, guided experiences, interaction, etc.
We aim to offer a variety of practical classes as well as spiritual.
We at the School of Earth Medicine view this gathering as a vehicle for women to empower one another, share their gifts with each other, and spark new ways to live.
We are inviting teachers to share their offerings with the School of Earth Medicine community.
The event is scheduled from Friday September 13th 3pm-Sunday September 15th 3pm at Whitewater State Park (about 2 hours South of the Twin Cities). We have rented the Group Center which contains 8 simple camper cabins (3 rooms each with bunkbeds), bathhouse (with showers) and a lodge. Cabins do not have electricity.
The site is secluded…surrounded by limestone bluffs and located on a beautiful little creek. Participants will have access to miles of hiking trails through/in/around forests, rivers and bluffs.
Themes and modalities that we've offered in the past are: yoga, qigong, qoya, dance, Earth Medicine, ceremony, medicine making, women's health, herbalism, alternative medicine, astrology, shamanism, singing, sound healing, and women's cycles. We also are particularly interested in nutrition, sexual health, empowerment, art, meditation, and somatics.
How do we select our teachers?
We select teachers based on experience, modality type, and fit for the event. We aim to offer classes from teachers with a diverse array of ages, races, and life experiences.
