AUTHENTIC SELF CARE WITH ROSE
Camp is already such an amazing act of Self Care! Experience more dedicated self reflection while you dive even deeper with Rose. Explore your needs and how to listen to them effectively. Enhance your experience with mindset and a little guided imagery. Self Care requires intentional and repetitive action, with the purpose of nurturing your own well-being. Set that intent deep inside a space you dare to dream. Learn easy activities you can use anywhere & anytime to bring balance back to your body. Journey through a breathwork practice, followed by physical embodiment and mindful movement.
TRAIL RUNNING WITH MICHAEL
Unleash your inner wildling on a super fun group run with Michael. He will keep an easygoing pace and you can expect to get in about 4 miles. Running is hard, but you know what makes it magical? Running through the forest, listening to wind in the trees, and feeling yourself come alive. Having completed several trail ultra marathons, Michael will give you some helpful tips before you set off on your adventure. Bring water and wear trail shoes if you have them, otherwise street running shoes will do.
CHARCOAL DRAWING WITH LYN
Campers will learn techniques for using charcoal as a drawing medium. Sketching, blending, light and shadow will be explored, as well as the use of drawing tools and supplies. You can expect to learn some basic techniques for drawing, and pointers for improving accuracy and composition. Art supplies will be provided. Already have some? Bring your favorites!
FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS WITH JAIME
What is more camp than friendship bracelet making? Join Jaime for a fun and thoughtful hour of arts+crafts that not only reminds you of being a kid but also draws you into mindful awareness. Her Friday session will focus on chakra colors. During her second session you will play with Camp Wildling's official colors. As you tie the knots and create your bracelets, Jaime will discuss moving meditation and how employing repetitive movement can lead to a deeper connection to yourself and your environment.
MOVING MEDITATION WITH PAM
Join Pam for a special class that weaves together the smooth lines and thoughtful movements of Hatha yoga with the immersive, depth charge of moving meditation. Using the river and the forest as her inspiration, this class asks you to open up and let yourself be vulnerable -- releasing destructive, unnecessary energy patterns so that you leave camp feeling empowered and genuinely at ease with yourself.
YOGA NIDRA WITH KELLY
Yoga Nidra is a portal into unfettered consciousness, to the realms that lie between sleeping and waking. Through the use of body sensing, breath awareness, guided imagery and other practices, Kelly will masterfully guide you on a meditation journey through the deepest layers of your being. To get the most out of this illuminating experience, it's vital for you to be as relaxed as possible on every level. Keep in mind that this session will be spent lying down without movement, so you may want extra padding under your hips and legs. If you've been dealing with congestion, you might want some extra pillows to prop up your back and head. We will have some bolsters, blocks, blankets, and yoga mats on hand. Please bring your own props if you have them.
CURIOUS ABOUT CANNABIS WITH ROSE
Whether you’re a seasoned toker or completely new on the scene, Rose welcomes you & your curiosity! Missouri is a Medical Marijuana state, which means this plant medicine may be available to support your health & wellness needs. We’ll chat about the Endocannabinoid system already inside your body, CBD, THC, ingestion methods, getting an ID and everything in between. All questions are encouraged.
*No plant material included, this is an information-sharing & educational event only*
KICK IT BY THE MERAMEC WITH KELLY
Camp Wildling is being held on the beautiful waters of the Meramec river. Grab your flotation device, beach towel and water shoes and meet Kelly for some good old fashioned Ozarks river fun. Hanging out by the river, floating in its current, soaking up the sun, and laughing with your friends is one of the most fun things you can do at camp. This session isn't necessarily a guided experience but rather a chance to celebrate the Water element with like-minded, soul-inspiring friends in a gathering devoted to play and exploration.
Keep in mind there is no lifeguard on duty so this session, much like life, is at your own risk.
