Social and Emotional Survival Skills
Saturday, October 14th; 9am-5pm
Sunday, October 15th; 9am-5pm
Please arrive by 8:45am and be prepared to start at 9am.
What to Expect: We will be spending significant time outside regardless of the weather. We encourage you to be prepared for all types of weather and bring several layers (to stay warm and dry) so that you can be comfortable throughout the class.
As this program is about unplugging, we will ask people to turn off their devices during class time.
We will be in our outdoor classroom around a fire. Please feel free to bring a blanket or a Crazy Creek style chair to increase your comfort. Otherwise, wooden benches and stumps will be provided.
We also recommend that you plan for spaciousness and self-care prior to, during, and after the weekend. This class will cover a variety of core practices of deep nature connection, along with experiential exercises and awareness building tools that are key to emotional and social resilience. This class is a deep dive into connecting with ourselves and others. Your instructors will invite self-reflection, sharing, and vulnerability.
Our Linne Doran campus includes Cedar Lodge, our indoor classroom and meeting space, as well as several outdoor classrooms including a large yurt and our outdoor classroom. There are porta-potties on the property. Linne Doran has limited cell reception and no internet access.
Participants are welcome to camp on our property on Saturday evening. Accommodations are rustic: there are simple campsites, potable water, and firewood provided.
If you would like more modern accommodations, there are some Airbnb/VRBO type accommodations nearby, as well as a Tolt McDonald Park (20 minutes away) for large RV set-ups. We do not have space for RV’s or for campers that are larger than a standard pickup truck
Food: No meals are provided with this program. Please bring a sack lunch and snacks. We do not have any way for you to refrigerate or heat your food, so please plan accordingly.
