There are so many other events happening around the west coast! Here are a few upcoming events:
- The Togethering: If you would like to experience the kind of community that Firemaker creates every year, consider The Togethering. Imagine this: You live in a healthy, vibrant village where life flows enjoyably, timelessly, and effortlessly; where every person has a personal connection with the community, with nature, and with himself or herself; and where learning is continuous and usually invisible. This is The Togethering. It will be held this year from August 13 to 17, 2014, near Sayward on Vancouver Island, and all are welcome. The Togethering is also a time for people who want to experience and learn firsthand about Coyote Mentoring. You will experience being and learning together within models developed and gifted from intact cultures that draw on hundreds, probably thousands, of years living in community.
