Shimmering Light Farm, Naples, NY

July 27th- July 29th, 2018

Crave a break from adulting?  Ready to revive childhood joy?

Come play with us and learn ancestral skills at the same time.

Choose your pleasure in each moment. You can…

– Build a fort (or a serious weather-proof shelter)
– Take a nap
– Make dandelion pie (and forage more wild edibles and teas)
– Howl at the Full Moon
– Sleep under the stars, or in your fort (or in a cozy indoor bed)
– Make your own rope or basket
– Play with fire (make a 1 match fire – and cook our wild harvest)
– Lollygag in a gully… find turtle stones
– Float under a waterfall
– En Joy!

This weekend forest immersion will weave these childhood passions together with ancestral survival skills and a Shinrin-Yoku Forest Bathing experience. All activities are invitations. Do what you feel like doing and happily ignore the rest (like you did when Mom was calling you in for dinner :) )
