Event description

Description

The calls and postures of birds can tell us much about what is happening in the world - the location of predators, presence of other humans, and even our own awareness and mindset. Designed to support anyone who wishes to expand their understanding of what is happening on the landscape, this course explores bird language and its applications: to understanding birds, to relationships, to tracking, and to the quiet mind. Explore how our presence on the land is felt by the more-than-human world.

Class meets for 4 Sundays in the field. During this time core routines of invisibility will be practiced along with "group sit spots", followed by debrief, questioning, and storytelling. In addition to the field component, we meet for 4 evenings in town to discuss our experiences in the field and at home. Weekly assignments, involving spending time sitting outdoors and journaling, will be given to aid the learning process.

Field sessions:
When: Sunday March 22, March 29, April 12, and April 19; 7:00-11:00am
Location: Clear Creek Natural Area, located near Carver, about a 45 minute drive from Portland

Classroom sessions:
When: Wednesdays April 1, 8, 15, and 22; 6:00-8:00PM
