Black Forest Pilgrimage

Confront Your Darkness

Fairy tales weren’t originally written for children. They were stories for people of all ages to learn how to deal with adversity and laugh at our problems.

Fairy tales go back thousands of years because they speak to the soul.

Consider this an emersion into that world. We venture to the Black Forest, home of the Brother’s Grimm and landscape that inspired many of their tales

Explore Your Stories

Consider this an inner world journey as well as an outer world one.

Most days we will hike 4-6 hours through these mountains to allow our imagination to perhaps go into places we’ve not visited since we were children.

During our time together, with the help of your facilitator, Laura Giles, we will explore fairy tales, and our wounds that are acted out within them, to rediscover our strength within.
