This program gives participants the foundation of skills that are absolutely essential to becoming a powerful earth skills instructor who can share these ancient skills in a transformational way.   


We begin with the power of storytelling, and the understanding of how the many facets of stories can help us inspire, create safety, teach and also connect with the natural world.


We'll also cover the many forms of mentoring, and the different roles instructors play throughout a retreat, workshop, summer camp, homeschool program or afterschool class. 


Mythology, and group dynamics, as well as program design and planning will be covered, through partipating in games, activities and focused study.   


We'll also work on several wilderness skills, crafts and get some time in the woods as well, just to break up the class day and keep us from getting 'information overload'!
