Honoring Spirits of Place
with Daniel Foor
Portola Redwoods State Park, 9000 Portola State Park Road, La Honda
Saturday-Sunday, October 17-18
$200 includes camping, three meals, and supplies

We'll gather over two full days (Saturday 10:00AM-Sunday 4:00PM) at Portola Redwoods State Park in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Near the source of Pescadero Creek in the coastal watershed, Portola Redwoods State Park is an excellent place to connect with Pileated Woodpecker, Banana Slug, Coast Redwood, Black-tailed Deer, Salamander, Bay Laurel, Bobcat, Huckleberry, and hundreds of other wild relations.

Participants can expect to learn foundational, accessible practices for quality relationships with the spirits of the land in the Bay Area (or wherever you dwell). We'll make ritual of praise and tears for the waters (including rains returning) and open to the guidance and good medicine of our other-than-human kin. Some prior experience with earth ritual/ceremony is helpful as is some willingness to work personal growth/empowerment edges in kind, supportive community space.

Spaces limited to 16, pre-registration and participation for the full event requested. Decent mobility is important as we'll hike (gently) about a mile or two each day with moderate elevation change (car camping overnight, no backpacking). Cost is $200 (flexibility as needed) and includes three healthy meals (Sat dinner - Sun lunch), campsite reservations, and supplies.

Daniel Foor, Ph.D., is a teacher and practitioner of earth and ancestor reverence. He leads trainings and rituals throughout the United States focused on ancestral and family healing and learning to relate well with the rest of the natural world.
