For those who long for a more soul-infused life and who yearn to find ways to reconnect to to the natural world as a person of faith during a time of deep cultural unraveling.
- A re-enchantment of the natural and wild world and a re-visioning of your deep belonging to this world by reconnecting with your senses, body, emotions, imagination and the earth.
- A re-wilding of the Christian story deconstructing the barriers, the processes of domestication, and distortions that have tamed and suppressed the earth-based vision of the Christ.
- A re-claiming of your own prophetic voice as a leader engaged in transforming culture during this age of ecological reformation.
- An invitation to embark on your own journey of wild discipleship, expanding your capacity to connect directly with the Holy and follow the radical call of Christ discerning the voice of God, Self and Nature.
