‘The Woman in the Woods’ is a series of 3-week online courses designed to empower all genders and ages over 16 to spend time outdoors and in nature with confidence and enthusiasm. In this module, we will focus on addressing fears about being in the woods and work towards determining areas in which we can challenge ourselves. We all have a different set of life experiences and skills to draw from as we face life challenges. Jen-Osha will share stories and tools from her experience as a peace-keeper, traveling alone through Ecuador, and homesteading with a young child in the mountains of West Virginia. This module is designed to meet you where you are at, and help you move towards your goals with confidence.

Students will touch on these topics:

  • Addressing logical fears
  • Being brave in the dark: how to approach the illogical fears
  • Assessment of physical skills
  • Situational awareness
  • Seeing the “sun and the shadow”
  • Scout vision and other tools to raise your awareness
  • Making wise choices with your physical resources
  • The power of the pack: using your human resources

Join us in a supportive and empowering class as we examine how we can make wise choices regarding our safety as well as allow ourselves space to be brave. This class will not have a final project, but will include weekly journaling.

The goal of this series is to nurture your connection to the natural world as a source of strength that empowers you in whatever situation you find yourself in – mom life, single life, married life, pandemic life – at this moment. Jen-Osha is an experienced and passionate educator who looks forward to growing and learning right along with you!
