Connecting with the Wild, Connecting with our Heart

With Bob Stahl, Jan Landry, and Kurt Hoelting

Registration Now Open

Join us at Keene Channel Lodge, in the heart of Southeast Alaska’s Tongass National Forest, to cultivate a deeper embodied presence with ourselves, each other, and the natural world. We will explore the elements that connect our senses to the mysteries and wisdom of a more-than-human world. Alaska’s Inside Passage evokes a wider, more ancient and visceral sen.  These practices open us to the grace connection and interconnection and dissolve the feelings of separation and isolation.
