It feels like a time to turn towards each other, to be present to each other, to help each other find the little spark of wonder that moves us to notice and…

The Art of Storytelling: Practice and Play!

07/08/2020 @ 2:00 pm - 04/09/2020 @ 4:00 pm
Online- via Zoom

Have you noticed how a good story totally lights up a space? I have come to realise that storytelling at its best is very alive to the moment. Stepping into a story is like stepping into a great adventure. The storyteller, like the adventurer, has stepped out of known territory onto rocky, uneven ground, where each step is a conversation with the world. The teller, like the adventurer, must be alive to all that lives in the space. I have…

Queer Wilderness Retreat: The nature of queerness and belonging

May 7 @ 1:43 am

Nature reminds us that being Queer* is both natural and something to be celebrated! Showing up as who we are in our own unique queer form is a celebration of nature’s diversity and honors our profound connection to the natural world and a deep sense of belonging. Accepting the fullness of our queer selves is both a radical act of rebellion against forces of hate and division, and a radical act of communion with all living things. Now is the…

Firekeepers Spring Virtual Village

17/09/2020 @ 4:00 pm
Online- via Zoom

Tracker and Naturalist Jon Young says that keeping nature stories to yourself and not sharing them with friends, family or your community is like never developing the film from your camera. (Back when we regularly used cameras...and film). In the story telling and catching and deeper questioning, we get to develop and deepen our connection and curiosity. During this lock down, we have been crafting weekly programs of nature connection activities to inspire you to get out into nature and then a space…

Village Camp- Autumn 2021

April 7 @ 1:00 pm - April 11 @ 2:00 pm
Riddles Creek,

It’s been a long year of rolling lockdowns, fear and social isolation for Victorians. We have all been boxed in at home much more than we expected. Adults quickly learned how to work from cupboards and bedrooms, lost their employment or soldiered on in essential services. Kids of all ages have been cooped up inside on screens for hours for school. Homeschoolers’ groups and activities were cancelled. Teens and young adults stuck at home missed hanging out with their peers…
