Village Co-op

Restoring Village Culture In our Modern World

A year in the life of a sacred village

This is our way of village tending and making the village ways accessible to everyone. 

Village culture is a way of gathering, supporting each other, and navigating the cyclic hoop of the year as we learn, heal, and grow. It's a life style of honoring, listening, and attuning ourselves to nature expressing within and without us.

Here you get to be part of this culture, join in with both live and virtual gatherings, experience the traditional ways of storytelling, ritual, rites of passage, and the presence of elders.

What's a Village "Co-op"?

We call it a co-op because you become a member of the village where your voice matters. It's a community we encourage you to share your gifts and contribute as well as receive and be part of the fire gatherings, rituals, and learning.

The Village Co-Op provides a variety of ways to deepen in, connect, and grow.  You can participate in all or one's you choose.

In addition to the gatherings, you'll have access to our

  • Library of Endangered Rememberings

  • Fox & Raven Bone's Reflective Storytelling

  • To Elder's and Mentors

Here's the flow and opportunities:
