Events and Workshops
Most of my classes are taught in conjunction with various earth skills gatherings in the west. I choose these gatherings as a venue because they promote a sense of tribe as well as demonstrate many other ways to connect with the earth, things that I feel are important and greatly lacking in our modern society.
I occasionally teach local classes and I am also open to travelling and teaching private groups if there are enough people interested. If this is something you want to do please contact me through email.
Listed below, in order by date, are my next teaching events and/or gatherings I'll be teaching at...
Pots in the Wild
Dates: To be determined
As a small group we will go out into the desert with minimal gear to gather and process everything we need to make pots. We will be out for 7 days in the southern Utah desert. This experience will be challenging physically, providing opportunities for problem solving and a tribal-teamwork mentality. Overall this will be a great learning experience! This course is for those that can hike in the backcountry, love learning, and can handle hot, dry weather (90+ degrees). Each student must bring their own camping gear and food. Cost is $600. Contact me asap for more details.

This four day ceremonial pottery intensive is designed to reawaken the ancient forms of elemental shamanistic wisdom that were once inextricably wedded to the art of shaping and firing clay. As a participant you will not only be led through to process of harvesting, shaping, painting, and firing your pot(s), you will do so in a manner that utilizes this ancient art form as a means to purposefully address your own personal healing growth and transformation. Moreover, the physical act of shaping and creating pottery can become a living source of guidance, insight, and wisdom to help inform the direction of your personal path.
