True wisdom is an inner-knowing that comes from deep listening in community. It is learning together how to listen to our one true life speak. Solomon was visited in a dream at night and asked for whatever he wished, to which he responded, “give me a hearing heart.” This gathering is an introduction to the Way of Council, listening to the language of the Creation, our inner life, and the community gathered in sacred circle.
In the Celtic tradition, the Equinox is a cyclical shift of season from the dark half of the year to the light half. The origins of resurrection of the Christ are patterned in the seasonal cycles of decay and growth, of death and new life. Spring is an exuberant experience of the vitality of the Spirit, a deep and sensual belonging flowering into the wholeness of our True Self. We will engage in spiritual rewilding practices in ceremonial celebration of Spring.
This introduction to Seminary of the Wild offers an experiential, nature-based, journey of apprenticeship into the wild mysteries of the kingdom of God and an invitation into a deeper participation in the restoration of the world, tikkun olam. This gathering has been created for those who long for a more soul-infused life and who yearn to find ways to re-connect to to the natural world as a person of faith during a time of deep cultural unraveling. Finding a way forward for the Pilgrim, the Church, and the culture will require that we live in alignment with the life-enhancing wisdom of Creation--the revelatory Book of Nature.

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.
