WORKSHOPS for adults
Our adult programs at Wild Cascara focus on Earth-centered practices for daily life, emphasizing reciprocity towards the Earth and all living beings. Our classes address the current global climate situation and explore ways in which we can support each other and the Earth as a community. Participants have the opportunity to fully engage with the land and learn through play, supporting each other in the creative process to develop authentic practices for everyday living.
At Wild Cascara, we aim to FOSTER a NURTURING & RECIPROCAL relationship with the Earth, this LAND, and our MORE-THAN-HUMAN kin, for people of all ages and backgrounds.
We seek to build a COMMUNITY that EDUCATES from an Earth-centered perspective that prioritizes INDIGENOUS knowledge and promotes COLLABORATION.
