Explore concepts related to “deep adaptation”, symbiotic living, and traditional ways of communicating with Nature.

Autumn Inquiry Invitation: Beyond Foraging with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower

Saturday, September 14,10AM–4PM

Explore concepts related to “deep adaptation,” symbiotic living, and traditional ways of communicating with nature. Strengthen your adaptive internal tools and reflect on community roles and connections.

Questions asked throughout the workshop:

1) What if we can't slow down climate change?

2) Can we experience positive acceptance of adverse change?

3) How can communities be successful and resilient in the face of an uncertain future?

The workshop will include enjoyable mind and body exercises, with an emphasis on developing keen observation and communication skills. We'll look at and listen to plants and trees, explore cognitive agility techniques, and process what it means to do what's right for nature.

Bring a bagged lunch & water. Expect to be outside all day. Preregistration required.

$45 per person for non-members; $40/WKC member or $60/couple for WKC members
