***What does nature connection have to do with activism? What does meditation have to do with social and environmental justice? ****
The Vespertine program weaves nature-connection and awareness practice with community engagement and activism. The Vespertine program is ideal for students who are interested in, or already engaged in social, racial, and/or environmental justice work within their communities. Vespertine explores how deepening our connection to the natural world, ourselves, and each other, can help us show up with strength, love, and integrity to shape change in our communities.
- Self-Awareness Practices
- Activist Skillbuilding
- Wildcrafting and Herbal Medicine Making
- Ancestral Skills (Fire by Friction, Carving, Shelter Building, Weaving, and more!)
- Overnight Camping Experiences
- Canoeing and Kayaking
The Vespertine program asks the question, “How can we build relationships with the earth, ourselves, and each other, that nurture and inspire heart-centered work within our communities?”
We’ll be meeting weekly at Rock Point. In addition to our weekly meetings, we will begin and end our year together by spending a day and night out on the land. These overnights will create space for us to really dive deep as we explore ourselves and the wild terrain of Rock Point. Overnights will also be a time to strengthen the different threads of relationship we’ll be cultivating throughout the year.
