Ancestral Skills
Saturday, August 24th – 9:15 to 10:30 am at the Farm House

mushroomsA Series of Classes introducing basic Nature Awareness Tracking and Observation Skills. These classes are non-linear, and will touch on different aspects each class, and will review basic skills. I will offer one on an evening and one on a Saturday. The first several classes will all be about engaging senses. We will start with the "feet" as a means of primary sight and sense. The exercises are fun and experiential. Bring a "blindfold" for use at times. Helpful items are non-toxic insect repellent and sunscreen, and water as needed.

The class fee is a sliding scale of $10.00 to $20.00, as you are able
All ages welcome
Please email: temenosdirector@gmail.com, so we know who to expect
