Sacred Earth Network's WEI18


The Wild Earth Intensive (WEI)
: is a powerful ten-day program designed to teach Earth-honoring wisdom in a way that can be passed down to future generations.

The Problem: A dominant culture completely cut off from natural and human rhythms. This has led to tremendous suffering and the ongoing destruction of ecosystems worldwide. Without developing a strong sense of connection to each other, our bioregion, and the entire planet, we are creating the trajectory for further ruination and misery.

The Solution: Cultivating a deep sense of spiritual connection to the natural world and one another. This is the mission of Sacred Earth Network (SEN a non-profit –501C3), the sponsoring organization for the Wild Earth Intensive.

"We were really living  community at a level of trust and depth that I’ve  never experienced before." 
--Selena Goldberg

We are asking for your financial contribution because the cost of this ten­ day residential program is largely unaffordable to the people who, we believe, need it most –young people. The late teens and early 20’s are an amazing time to have experiences like the WEI. It is a period of life where one’s spirit still acknowledges that all things are possible. If nurtured, they can the grow into adulthood knowing who they really are: wild, loving beings, part of a resilient, ever­changing, interconnected Earth community. 

Please help us make this dream a reality. Your involvement can transform the Wild Earth Intensive into a community­ supported program—that has follow through way after the event-- accessible even to young people who aren't yet in the workforce.

"This was quite possibly the most profound ten days I have ever experienced. If this is what a small group of people can createin ten days, I know that we can transform this world. We were doing it every second of every day—we were living it."
— Joanna Friedlander

Our curriculum (drug and alcohol free).

Bill Pfeiffer and a group of exceptional leaders have offered the WEI for 5 out of the past 8 years, each time improving, serving over one hundred people who have had life-changing experiences. The program leaves people physically and spiritually transformed and willing to stand on behalf of the planet.

"Four things were made crystal clear:
1)I became connected to a group of people in ways I had no idea existed.
2)I quickly discovered ideas and feelings in myself which would have otherwise remain hidden. 
3)I further believe in a direct connection with spirit. 
4) If we spent enough time together I know we could be part of a culture where the land could flourish."
-Michelle Savard

"The Wild Earth Intensive is as wild and intense as it sounds. Intensely empowering and awakening, where connecting, sharing and feeling is like breathing. Wild in the purest sense of no holding back, stretching our safety nets like never before. I’ve never known coordinators who are more in tune with the needs of the group."
