DAUGHTERS OF THE EARTH
A Nature-based mentoring programme for girls and young women
In Nature we can be ourselves. There is an opportunity to discover what motivates us, what holds us back and what guides us. Nature offers the perfect place for us to practice self-acceptance as well as to recognize where our 'edges' are so that the girls can discern for themselves where risks may lie, and have the opportunity to make informed decisions of what feels right for them, so they feel empowered to apply this conviction in other areas of their life.
We do this through Nature connection practices & games, walking, bouldering, hiking, bushcraft skills such as learning to build shelters, campfires, carving & whittling, tea ceremony and specific communication tools to invite inclusion, understanding, conflict resolution and self-awareness.
The Daughters of the Earth programme offers an introduction to these skills, a gentle way to of bringing awareness to self-limiting beliefs, cultural conditioning and offer opportunities to expand comfort zones and just experience safety within a group to show up in our true selves, held lovingly by Mother Nature herself.
