Wild Christ, Wild Earth, Wild Self

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. 

You will experience:

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.

Wild Edges: A Daylong Introduction to Seminary of The Wild

This daylong nature-based immersion for pastors and spiritual leaders will be rooted in Celtic and indigenous theology and practice. Experience the wisdom of the divine in the natural world, the First Book of Creation. Reconnect with sacred land the way our ancestors, the prophets and mystics experienced life as a ‘communion of subjects,’ not a ‘collection of objects.’ Reclaim the wild roots of the Christian story while deepening into authentic community. Discover the ‘treasure hidden in the field’ of your own innate and wild wholeness and deep belonging.

Church of Lost Walls

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.

Primal Speech: Praying With The Creation

Join us for an experience of “wild worship” that returns the practice of prayer to its primal roots: a life-creating expression of the Creation! Experience the rich fullness of your five senses, the freedom of being fully alive to your own emotions through bodily movement and creative expression. Participate deeply with God and reconnect with the natural world opening your life to the grief and joy, memory and imagination that is waiting to be lived.

Through nature-based contemplative practices that draw upon the wisdom of sacred narratives and older traditions, we will cultivate a deeper connection with nature and our own wild wholeness. Take a small step across the threshold toward a culturally creative vision for life. Renew your sense of hope and courage to face our current spiritual and ecological crises together, rooted in kinship and community with one another, the wild earth, and the great mystery we call God.
