Way of the Hunt Year 2

Now Registering for 2019

Please note, this program is only for those who have completed Way of the Hunt Year 1





Dawn Stars


This 8 weekend intensive is to further the learning journey you are on.  During year one we dove into the foundational skills for connecting with the Hunt in a multifaceted way.  In Year 2 we will add to the bundle of what we are learning by reinforcing prior lessons, opening up other dimensions in connecting to the hunt, and teaching what we have learned in the past to Year 1 participants.  There will be a mix of self-directed learning including long term homework assignments, learning with other instructors, working together as a group, and being in service to new participants. The journey continues...

See schedule below for focal point of each weekend.
