Bird Language: Bird Medicine 

The language of birds have been utilized by lineages of Earth people to find food and predators, to understand dynamics of their landscape. We will explore how listening to the birds can help us gain an understanding of the ecology of where we live and travel to. Even more importantly, we can use bird language to diagnose the nuances of our consciousness, and to help us adjust our states of awareness and well-being. 

At a fundamental and practical level, you will learn how to identify different bird species by ear. We then go deeper into the 5 voices of the birds to understand how birds are reflecting the outer forest environment and our inner energetic environment.

This body of knowledge will last within you for the rest of your life, really.

$75 for the day, $325 to stay at Hidden Lake and do the Medicine Wheel Game.

Lauri learned to listen deeply to the birds, first as an instructor or Oregon NatureMapping, then as a naturalist studying with Jon Young at Wilderness Awareness School. This work continues to inform her everyday life as she delights in the rich diversity of birds that make Hidden Lake their home.
