Workshop Series: Connecting with Ancestors through the Ancient Skills of the Earth Workshop Series:
Fire ~Ignite your Inner Flame~
During this workshop, we will be connecting with the element of Fire from the perspective of our ancestors. The participants will have a chance to awaken their senses by seeing a friction fire and Hawaiian fire building techniques and tasting local food cooked through ancient cooking techniques. They will have a chance to go wandering through the sacred cloud forest to find fire building materials and make tinder bundles to ignite their passion for building fires like our ancestors. Woven into the daily activities will be storytelling, giving thanks, sit spots, fort and fairy house building, awareness games, and spontaneous adventures.
Earth ~Drop into Nature ~Empowering the Next Generation of Caretakers of the Earth~
During this workshop, we will be connecting with the element of Earth from the perspective of our ancestors. The participants will have a chance to awaken their senses by connecting further to the aina by learning knowledge of place, being introduced to the art of tracking and being empowered through storytelling, awe, and reverence to be the next generation of Caretakers of the Earth. Woven into the daily activities will be storytelling, giving thanks, sit spots, fort and fairy house building, awareness games, and spontaneous adventures.

The joy my son expresses on a Journey day is worth a hundred 5 star review. Mariah's ease with nature, children, and Hawaiian culture is organic. I am thankful for the lessons and teachings she shares, and the unique opportunity she provides to enhance my child's daily life through nature mentoring. (P.S. always send extra extra pants. For real!) - Anna
"Thanks for such a great camp! My daughter had a lot of fun, felt really safe even when trying new things and learned a lot! We so look forward to having her get to return for a full week once she is a bit older. Invaluable skills!"- Corinne M De Soto, ND, MS Naturopathic Family Medicine
Leah and Franz had a magical experience during fall break camp at Journeys in the Na'au Deep Nature Connection. Franz told me at the end of the first day that “It was great!” Thank you Mariah for giving our children such a beautiful, fun, enriching week in nature.
We will absolutely be back!- Alysa
