Adventures in Art: Hiking & Writing with Stephanie Wade @ Gulf Hagas
Oct 12 – Oct 14 all-day
Adventures in Art: Hiking & Writing with Stephanie Wade @ Gulf Hagas | Brownville | Maine | United States

Experience the Grand Canyon of the East as we explore the Gulf Hagas region of Maine. We will camp on the Pleasant River. After an evening around a bonfire and stargazing you will be rocked to sleep by the gentle rhythm of the river.

Once again we have the pleasure of working with Stephanie Wade as she joins our community to inspire and ignite our creative self. We will engage all our senses as we immerse ourselves in the natural environment. Autumn is a time of transformation both internally and in the outer world. With inspiration from the natural world you have the opportunity to engage in poetry or prose. To build community, we will share informal writing, develop the ability to listen to each other, and practice asking good questions. We will conclude with a celebration of our work and our connections to nature.

Adventures in Art: Hiking, Movement & Dance with Shana Bloomstein @ Rangeley Lake
Oct 19 – Oct 21 all-day
Adventures in Art: Hiking, Movement & Dance with Shana Bloomstein @ Rangeley Lake | Rangeley | Maine | United States

Shana is excited to be offering a weekend retreat with Nancy Zane that will integrate Yoga, creative movement, massage, visual art and journaling with our explorations of the natural world. This weekend hopes to provide a nourishing and grounding environment for everyone to begin a personal reflective journey into somatic movement, create a simple daily practice incorporating massage, yoga and movement, while being effortlessly inspired and in awe of our natural world. It is through our journeying outside that we hope to feel a peace that will allow integration, processing through creative play and movement and an unfolding into our inner emotional and personal landscapes.

This nature based art retreat is for people who want to explore creativity as a means for self-discovery and reflection. It is a retreat integrating movement and art for self-care and exploration. This is an open and non-judgmental environment to freely explore creative self-expression; self-care rituals, and a peaceful time away to delve deeper into you! We intend to explore the healing potential of our minds, bodies and souls together. This weekend retreat in the transformative Autumn air, will fold in the unique offerings of each individual, and is bound to inspire a spiritual connection to our outer world, while we dive deep and tend to our inner landscapes with love and support.

Staying Found: Map & Compass @ Waldo County Technical Center
Oct 27 all-day
Staying Found: Map & Compass @ Waldo County Technical Center | Belfast | Maine | United States

Do you like to spend time in the woods? Do you enjoying hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, paddling, motor boating, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing…? Are you a Maine Guide or aspiring Maine Guide? Are you a part of a Search & Rescue team? Whether you are a professional rescuer or you enjoy spending time in the backcountry with friends and family this course is for you! You will learn to read and interpret the language of maps. After you feel confident in map reading we will help you to unlock the mystery of the compass. It is a simple but very effect tool that doesn’t rely on satellites or batteries. The final portion of the course is learning to use them together. We will set a course for you to navigate and test your skills.

The Maine woods are thick and can be featureless. Learning to trust your knowledge and your compass will open up a world of exploration. You will gain the skills to go into more remote locations with self-confidence!

Please bring yourself, your lunch and your sense of direction!
