Coyote Teacher Training
Whether you're a teacher, a parent, a young adult or just wanting to discover more about yourself, this weekend offers you a life-changing experience! Coyote Teaching is an art form that is useful to all people. This class is about your personal journey as a teacher, role model, and student. Coyote Teaching is taught in this class through lectures, talking circles, and personal experience of activities that cultivate presence, self-awareness, and connection with nature. The hands-on, experiential activities done in this course facilitate the understanding of Coyote Teaching and how your relationship with yourself is inherent in your path as a Coyote Teacher. Our intent for this class is to create a learning environment that accompanies ancient forms of Coyote Teaching as well as newly evolved forms of Coyote Teaching that work for bridging the gap between the modern day human and the more than human world. Program Details: Arrival: This program is 3 days. On the first day, Friday, Nov. 2nd @ 4 pm, Registration will take place next to the pond. Departure: This class ends Sunday, Nov. 4th @ 12 pm. Shelter: Participants in this class will be sleeping in a personal tent on grass or in a personal tent under the shelter of the big white wedding tent. Indoor options are reserved for students unable to sleep in a tent outside (please email us if the only reason for not being able to attend is the inability to sleep outside, as we have potential indoor options for you). The tipi, wedding tent, fire pits, sunshine, and a lovely indoor kitchen and dining space will be keeping us warm during the day. Be sure to bring everything you need to stay warm and comfortable. Check the recommended gear list below for ideas on warm clothing, the degree of sleeping bag needed and other recommended items to bring. Water: There will be 2 indoor bathrooms to be used by students, one is located in the main house and the other is on the side of the Garden Carriage House in close proximity to the tenting area. The sink in either of these bathrooms or in the kitchen during meal times will be used to fill water bottles. If the number of students exceeds these bathrooms abilities to serve the people, a porta-potty will be rented to make sure everyone has a place to go when they need to. Food: Nourishing fresh cooked healthy and organic meals will be provided for this class. A variety of flavors of hot tea will be served in mornings and evenings. The food provided is intended to nourish and provide for all your energy needs for the weekend. However, if you need or enjoy having personal snacks please bring them!

    “What would happen if you treated your whole self-body, heart, mind and spirit — as a garden worthy of your love and diligent efforts? What dead matter would you clear away? What would you plant? How would you fertilize the soil and nurture the seedlings. What would you do with this plentiful harvest from your garden?”– Hale Sofia Schatz

    "I sometimes wish that grown human beings were more like children, who are naturally open and accepting of others. Instead, as we grow up, we fail to nurture our natural potential and our sense of fundamental human values. We need to learn to distinguish emotions like anger and attachment that are destructive from positive ones like compassion that are a source of happiness." - Dalai Lama
