About RP Gone Wild!
Oregon in mid-June is usually mildly warm weather and lots of wildflowers. Being outdoors is very inviting.
In this non-residential workshop/retreat we'll go deep into our internal wholeness and use our time to meet nature in nondual perception. I live on 60-acres bordering BLM (Bureau of Land Management) acreage. Our property has been in the family since the 1880s and for most of the time, nearly 100 years, was allowed to cultivate wildness.
We'll meet each day in my spacious adjunct cottage (1000+ sqft), meditate and walk in the woods. Start and finish times will vary daily, depending upon the weather and the plants. We may meet and meditate outside one evening. And there may be an optional opportunity to attend a play at the world famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Details to follow.
You'll meet and get to know many wild plants including: St. John's Wort; Plantain; Motherwort; wild Chamomile; Yarrow; Self-Heal; and many more. We'll learn from the plants themselves, as well as teachings from wise herbal healers, explore conscious harvest, and enjoy a bit of hands-on making herbal potions: oils, tinctures, & vinegars.
This is primarily a meditation/embodiment/healing ground experience. The plants are available to encourage harmony with natural world and provide an element of play.

About Candace Cave
I've lived in the So. Oregon woods for 15-years. I spent 27-years before that exploring Pacific Ocean locales from aboard a small cruising sailboat. I like to be outside, engaged with the natural world.
I am not an herbalist, but I've been meeting and studying wild plants for 40-years. My teachers have been the plants themselves, & several wise women including Susun Weed and Kathi Keville.
I love exploring Realization Process and I love playing with wild plants. I look forward with pleasure to exploring my loves with you.
"Candace is an exceptional Realization Process teacher. She brings years of dedicated training and experience in the Realization Process, as well as her own gifts of sensitivity, perception and compassion to her work. I am delighted that she is teaching, and I highly recommend her."
