Two-day Retreat: Self & Service - The Awakening Heart

 

The Awakening Heart: Self and Service

December 14-16 at Breitenbush Hot Springs

 

This two day retreat is an opportunity to explore our inner terrain, the landscape where who we think we are arises and the actions we take emerge. Softening our edges, we’ll enrich all we do for peace, justice, community, and ecological stability in the world.  Themes from Living Earth’s DVD on conscious social action, “The Heart of Change: A Conversation with Ram Dass,” will fuel our discussions and refresh our compassion, creativity, and deep caring for the world around us. 

 

See www.LivingEarthGatherings.org for details and online registration.

Teri Lysak Program Coordinator Cascadia Wild!

Come learn the ancient art of animal tracking. Learn to decipher the stories written in the snow and in the landscape, while snowshoeing through the deep, wintry woods. The Wolverine Tracking project provides a space where trackers of all skill levels can come together to strengthen their skills, while while at the same time participating in surveys to monitor rare carnivores and their prey in the Mt Hood National Forest.
