Circle Way Camp, July 6-10, 2015
THEME OF THE YEAR: "7 GENERATIONS"
Native American Elder Medicine Story, Ellika Linden, Peter Elmberg, Stephen Hinton

Get inspired by Native American worldview and way of life!
For the 14th year we offer an adventure and a growing experience for all ages at beautiful Mundekulla. Find tools for actively listening to others, getting closer to your feelings and becoming more conscious of your goals and dreams. During the five days of camp we create a ”tribe” in the spirit of the circle, living in greater harmony with nature and each other. Besides circle here will be traditional story-telling and optional workshops.

7 generations!
Bring your friends children along for this beautiful summer vacation, enjoy the company of the Circle Way and learn more of the Native Traditions of caring for children with a Seven Generation ahead perspective. This year the Camp theme is from Medicine Story’s latest book “the Joy of Caring for Children” which will be available to download and purchase prior to and during the camp, Contact Stephen Hinton

Contents
During the camp people of all ages meet in clans (little groups) based on respect, to get mutual support and appreciation and to experience a possible alternative to the actual situation of society. Activies include talking stick circles, co-counselling, sweat lodge, story telling, music and dance. The daily workshops give us a theoretical and practical background and support us to deal better with our strained emotions and our partner- and friend ships to women, men, children, the environment and other cultures and nations. There are also daily activities for children (from around ages 6-7).
