These short form "medicine" journeys are inspiring and a great way to get a taste of wilderness rites of passage. In this context "medicine" means that which heals, strengthens, and empowers - medicine from your inner wisdom, Nature, and Spirit. For some people medicine walks are moving and for others, surprising life changing.
Each medicine walk will be on a theme related to the season. There will be time in council (talking circle), a talk on the 4 shields medicine wheel (wheel of life), ceremonial time on the land, then storytelling and mirroring the gifts those stories contain. Each medicine walk is led by trained Cascadia Quest guides and takes places in wilderness areas near Eugene. They can be done individually or as a series.
