The phrase “earth walks” refers to each person’s life journey, rather than hiking or backpacking. For over 17 years, Earth Walks has offered a rewarding experience of self discovery through the land, arts, cultures and traditions of New Mexico and the American Southwest. Participants are welcomed as family and friends into local homes and villages by indigenous “cultural consultants” who provide a bridge of experience between ancestral teachings and contemporary life. A central feature of this experience is “service learning”–hands on help in fields, farms and homes while learning local values. Enjoy storytelling, drum making, pottery, weaving, traditional foods, silence on the land in places of inspiring natural beauty and power. For more information visit the Earth Walks blog.
