Inspirational nature-based courses drawing on the healing rites and ceremonies of Earth-cherishing traditions, led by Pip Bondy.

These courses – Councils, Vision Quests and Initiation Rites – are opportunities to expand perception and deepen compassion, finding our unique gifts. They are set in a field of non-judgment and acceptance, allowing the phenomenal power of the human heart and spirit to become visible. They seek to help us acknowledge, honor and celebrate our lives; they further the part we play in creating and visioning a future for ourselves and our planet.

Way of Council

Council is a practice of speaking and listening from the heart. We come together in a circle of Council that creates a container for empathy and honesty.

The ancient form of Council is a spiritual practice that moves us to a deeper, more compassionate level of communicating and being.

Vision Quest

The Vision Quest is an ancient ceremony to mark and move on from one life transition to another.

The ancients knew that by crossing these thresholds in wild places, we face our fears, see our life pass through and gather our medicine, in order to move into the next phase of life.
