Do you want to feel more comfortable outdoors in nature? Have you always wanted to go camping but don’t know what to take and don’t know how to choose a safe location?

The Woman in the Woods’ is a series of 3-week online courses designed to empower all genders and all ages over 16 to spend time outdoors and in nature with confidence and enthusiasm. Outdoor Educator Jen-Osha will share stories and tools from her experience as a peace-keeper, traveling alone through Ecuador, and homesteading with a young child in the mountains of West Virginia.

This third module is focused on how to increase our confidence and comfort level in situations that make us uneasy. How do you handle feeling unsafe in a social environment. What can you do when someone is too close in your personal space? How can you set up boundaries in a challenging or intimidating setting? This module is designed to meet you where you are at, and help you move towards your goals with confidence.

Students will touch on these topics:

  • Addressing logical fears
  • Being brave in the dark: how to approach the illogical fears
  • Situational awareness
  • Seeing the “sun and the shadow”
  • tools to raise your awareness
  • Making wise choices with your physical resources
  • Using your human resources

Join us in a supportive and empowering class as we examine how we can make wise choices regarding our safety as well as allow ourselves space to be brave. This class will not have a final project, but will include weekly journaling.

The goal of this class is to nurture your connection to the natural world as a source of strength that empowers you in whatever situation you find yourself in – mom life, single life, married life, pandemic life – at this moment. Jen-Osha is an experienced and passionate educator who looks forward to growing and learning right along with you!

Module 1: Planning an Outdoor Trip (May 2023)

Module 2: Preparedness Skills (June 2023)
