Wisdom Camp 2024: Depth and Desire

Pre-Festival Offering
Thursday July 11, 2024

9 am – 5 pm

cost: $59.00


Discern your path to the conscious love, sexuality, and relationships you’ve always wanted.

Are you seeking a space where your spirituality and sexuality can come together in a hot and holy ‘yes’? Where you can explore the depths of love, intimacy, and relationship styles without fear or judgment? Look no further than this year’s Wisdom Camp – a transformative day-retreat for hungry hearts ready to embark on a journey of self-examination and communal growth.

At Wisdom Camp, we invite you to stop apologizing for your wonderings and longings, stepping instead into loving the questions themselves. Instead of shame and shut-down, dive deeply into inner inquiry, collaborative learning, and grounded play.

In a safe(r) and nurturing environment, we’ll delve into questions many are asking: about getting our touch (platonic and erotic) needs met, consent, mindful embodiment, kink, tantra, and alternative relationship styles. We are on a quest for the internal and external freedom to create relationships that honor our unique needs and everyone involved.

Throughout our time together, we’ll be guided by the ancient wisdom of venerable contemplative traditions, especially (believe it or not!) the teachings of Jesus – an advocate for scandalous grace and love without limit. Be challenged to hear Jesus’ message afresh, beyond stale assumptions and into the diversity of human experience.

Everyone is welcome at Wisdom Camp: Whether faithful or doubter, queer or straight, kinky or vanilla, trans or cis or nonbinary, asexual or hypersexual, monogamous or polyamorous or still questioning, you’re invited to discover, deepen, and celebrate your God-given expressions in ways resonant with your deepest values, including Jesus’ call to love, justice, and abundant living.

Wild Goose Festival is a space where people of diverse backgrounds bravely ask many of life’s most pressing questions, playing and listening to a symphony of responses. Wisdom Camp: Depth and Desire offers a facilitated container inviting curiosity, courage, and collaboration into specific questions with a cohort of fellow learners.

Wisdom Camp: Depth and Desire invites us to reflect on and activate our own sacred sexuality, bringing together mind, body and spirit to live life more abundantly.
