RE-WILDING NATURE IMMERSION

FOR GIRLS

9 - 12 yrs                   April 2020                   Limited to 8 girls  

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 introduce the practice and art of ancestral and bushcraft skills, stereotypically associated with men, so they can feel empowered in applying these skills to all areas of their life, and not feel limited by how they perceive a young woman ‘should’ act.

“There are still differences in the way we socialize girls and boys. Our culture continues to define femininity in ways that put women at odds with their natural self, so that it’s difficult to adhere to the feminine ideal and use your body effectively in the natural world" - Dr. Britain Scott

Kembali’s wilderness Rites of Passage programme was designed to allow a safe space for young women to experience all of this, and feel ready to consciously step into the next phase of their lives with a greater sense of purpose and belonging. 

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 (Day 6).

 

It is essential that at least 1 guardian is present for this ceremony to witness them.

GUIDING YOUR GIRLS

Jasmine Nunns is the founder of Kembali, and shares a strong passion for guiding nature based experiences that supports our reconnection to the Human and Earth community. 

 

Jasmine has had over 12 years experience running experiential programmes with schools, NGO’s and corporate groups.  She understands the importance of creating space for each individual’s needs to be met, and fully understands the challenge and conflict in expressing our authentic selves. 

 

Jasmine grew up in the HK countryside, spending hours outdoors learning in the form of play. At a young age, Jasmine’s parents divorced which resulted in her growing up in an environment witnessing emotional pain, conflict of values and had a strong sense of unworthiness. Coupled with a history of being repeatedly bullied in school, Jasmine recognized only as an adult that what she had lived with was trauma. 

 

Over the years, Jasmine has explored and trained in diverse practices to support awareness, healing and empowered alignment. They all guided her back to the wisdom and support of Nature. She now designs and facilitates therapeutic experiences in natural spaces with her work through Kembali. 

 

Jasmine embodies all the practices she shares with others, and feels that integrity, compassion and curiosity are her strongest values. She had taken herself to multiple training courses that enable her to share the wilderness and communication skills she has learned with others, as well as embody them herself. 

 

Jasmine is trained and certified in:

  • Masters in Counselling

  • Wilderness First Aid Responder

  • Nature & Forest Therapy Guide 

  • Rites of Passage Facilitator

  • ICF Certified Transformational Coach

  • Level 3 Forest School Leader
