Tree Dancing Retreats
Ascend into a world of physical and personal discovery.
Join an aerialist & arborist team for a unique outdoor workshop to discover the freedom & joys of climbing trees with rope & harness and dancing where gravity feels suspended. This is an experiential workshop intended to offer curious movers - aerialist, climber, researcher, dancer, arborist, acrobat, explorer - an opportunity to ascend into a world of physical and personal discovery. We’ll teach you all the ropes you need to know, including physical and creative techniques while giving you space to explore at your own pace. Defy gravity and find your inner strength.
A typical day will include practical and creative programming: grounded meditation, tree anatomy, rigging instruction, equipment sampling, creative sharing, stretching & physical training, and personal discovery time.
Experience a variety of harnesses, rigging options and climbing tools.
Learn about installing points for supported exploration on climbing lines that is safe for the tree and safe for you.
Be in the woods with an eye to place, an awareness of history and considerations of our future.
Participants will learn the practical side of tree climbing including gear and physical techniques, as well as the spiritual side of considering our relationship with the natural world, challenging our selves to make changes, and deepen connections to the humans with whom we share this path with.
