About the Event
Adolescence can be a time of uncertainty and turbulence for young women. They are often launched into it with little consciousness, support and guidance. At the same time, we live in a society where girls and boys are constantly at the receiving end of unconscious gender bias and stereotyping.
The intention behind this immersion for young girls is to support their reconnect with Nature as their guide, so that wherever they are in life, they may have the tools to access powerful Earth-based wisdom. The programme also introduces the practice and art of ancestral and bushcraft skills, where we practice the skills our ancestors used, and that so many of us have lost. These skills can act as a simple and profound way to connect with Nature, as well as to bypass the 'monkey brain' that so many of us get stuck in, in order to access our innate wisdom.
Transferable skills we will be practising:
- Fire making and tending
- Whittling and carving from wood
- Shelter Building
- Ropes and knots for different uses
- Nature Connection
- Gratitude practices
- Sharing and group council
The immersion offers an introduction to a wide array of skills during the week, then invites the cohort of girls to spend 2D1N camping on a beautiful beach in Hong Kong to apply the skills they have learned on a practical level, as well as serving as an initiation that supports their transformation; Stepping into their unique brilliance, power and purpose.
Parents & guardians are invited to join our integration ceremony on the final day (10th April).
It is essential that at least 1 guardian is present for this ceremony to witness them.
