Open House May 17th and May 24th, 2013
in Montague, MA at Brook's Bend Farm.
for Girls ages 12-16 (Aurelia Moon) and ages 9-11 (Naia Moon)
In an all female setting, girls have an opportunity to explore and claim their own power and their relationship with nature and the skills of caretaking themselves and the natural world. Activities include tracking natural mysteries, adventuring, preparing herbal remedies, games, building friction fires, harvesting delicious wild edibles, singing, carving bone, stone & wood, experiencing empowerment in meeting edges and much more. This intimate program supports quality, one-on-one connection to guide teen and pre-teen girls through their transitional time of life. We encourage any girl who wants to connect with nature, herself, other girls and women mentors to apply.

2013 Vermont Art of Mentoring & Fall Teen Rendezvous
Monday September 21 to Saturday September 28, 2013
at Farm & Wilderness near Plymouth, VT.
Deep in all of our roots, there are stories of our ancestors living in healthy, regenerative communities—villages where people of all ages were in deep relationship with the land, each other, and themselves. The Vermont Art of Mentoring is a six-day experiential, nature based set of concurrent programs for ages 3 to 99 designed to help us remember these old ways and learn to apply them to our modern communities.
The Vermont Art of Mentoring workshop is one of several Art of Mentoring workshops offered around the world and the second longest running programming site with an experienced core leadership team representing 50+ years of experience in the Art of Mentoring. We bring together instructors and facilitators from throughout the Northeast and beyond to staff eight concurrent programs that together make up the Vermont Art of Mentoring.
Here are the concurrent programs offered at the Vermont Art of Mentoring 2013. Select the program you would like to learn more about:
Cost: $650 until May 1st, $700 starting May 15th. Includes food and basic housing.
