Social and Emotional Survival Skills

When:
Saturday November 5th; 9am-5pm
Sunday November 6th; 9am-5pm

Please arrive by 8:45am and be prepared to start at 9am.

Where: Linne Doran is located about fifteen minutes outside of Duvall in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. You can find a map and driving directions here.

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 also recommend that you plan for spaciousness and self-care prior to and during 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. Please note that share and vulnerability is built into the curriculum of this program. 

Health Precautions
We ask all participants to stay home if they have signs or symptoms of Covid-19. Please see the following Dept. of Health Guidelines for an updated list of symptoms. All students are asked to quarantine or isolate if they have symptoms or a Covid exposure per the most up to date state and county guidelines. Please note that masks may be required OR may be optional. We will send an update about current health and safety requirements 2 weeks before the start date.

Facilities
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
