This summer, join us as we explore and celebrate the woods, fields, and waters of Golden Well Farm and Apiaries. Nature becomes our classroom, living room, and playspace as we build strong connections to the land and to each other.

Basket Weaving with Alexa Rivera
Sunday, July 16th, 10:30am-6pm

Basket Weaving is a tradition as old as human history, and a craft that has been practiced by evert ancient culture across the globe. People have made baskets from their barks, branches, vines, and grasses and used these baskets for harvesting and storing food, medicines, and tools. The study of baskets is the important study of vessel, of human, of geography, of utilitarian and spiritual connection with nature, and of intuition. 

In this class we will weave an Adirondack Pack Basket, a beautiful basket which dates back to the 1800s and was born in the Adirondack Park. These baskets were traditionally made from hand-pounded black-ash and were used for carrying heavy loads for hunting, fishing, trapping and trekking in the mountains. We will use reed for our baskets, and everyone will leave with their own hand-woven Pack Basket. All materials will be included in the class, except for the straps. 

Basket weaving is a way to connect with our ancestral lineage, it is an allowance to sit together and tell stories, to commit to making slow and honoring the process. Come join us for a day of weaving and leave with a beautiful basket to take home for your own use in garden, forest, farm, or mountain. 

Snacks and tea will be provided, please bring your own lunch or a potluck dish to share. Please also bring a flat-head screw driver, scissors, and a pencil. Thanks so much and excited to weave with you!

Cost: $120
Limited space, register early!

An Intro to Shamanic Journey Work w/ Nicole Burke
(email with interest, date TBA)

In this introductory workshop, we will use the sound of the drum to travel beyond the realm of ordinary consciousness and open to the information that lies beyond. Traditionally used by Shamans for healing purposes, journeying is a type of "seeing" that can be available to anyone willing to delve into connecting more deeply with their intuitive sense. We'll learn about the ethics of these practices, safe ways to explore other realms, how to welcome the directions, work with spirit allies and take a journey to the lower world.

No experience necessary. Please bring a hand drum or a rattle, a notebook, and a eye pillow or blindfold.

Cost: $65 . Pre-registration is required. Partial scholarships available.

Eros, Vitality & Healthy Aggression: A Men's Soul Immersion Day
*postponed, please inquire about new dates*
: 9:30 a.m. - 11p.m

Awakening to a life of deeper meaning where vitality and new possibilities for how to live, how to love, and how to make new choices beyond any reality that has become uniquely familiar, is alive in each one of us.

Christopher Royer and Nathan Maez co-lead this experience which offers you the opportunity to delve further into the sacred places inside, which in some ways are more real than any other inside you. So often, in our lives, we have a difficult time expressing ourselves fully and authentically. Together we will explore themes of vitality, Eros and aggression in a way that joins heart, body and mind as we follow the call of our souls toward wholeness and our own personal truth. We will practice deepening into support outside of ourselves because as men, we have the tendencies to x, go it alone and force our will.

As a group, we will create a joint space to allow something to happen together that simply could not happen anywhere else.

  • Eros - the creative, spontaneous fire inside us
  • Vitality - the power of life present in all living things
  • Aggression - a potentially constructive force that we can put forward into the world
