Headwaters Offers a New Class for Adults - Adult Vision Quest

Mount Shasta in Evening Light

A Vision Quest is a time to spend alone in nature with no daily-life distractions. Like the Rumi poem "the breezes at dawn have secrets to tell, don't go back to sleep," the Vision Quest provides us an opportunity to awaken to our inner yearnings so we can learn to fulfill our basic creative, positive nature rather than collapse within inner conflict.

Tim's thoughts on 2015 and 2016

Tim & Jackson

2016 is going to be a wonderful year at Headwaters Outdoor School. I feel it in my bones. I’m very excited and happy to create this coming year. I’m also excited to see how it creates me. This journey will be fully lived. I have much gratitude for the past year 2015, and I am looking forward with gratitude for what is to come. The joy of the mystery, the unknown is so wonderful to look forward to. Good, bad or ugly, it will be an adventure, and I love Adventure.

The Shasta Winter is Back

Bark Tepee in Winter

It's been snowing steadily since mid-December and the snow pack is building all over the Mt. Shasta region. With more than 8 feet of snow on Mt. Shasta, this year's Winter Class promises to be one to remember.
