I never imagined myself as a hunter.  I still have never shot a gun in my life.  But that will change this fall, when I take Mountainsong Expedition’s Huntress Intensive, led by Murphy Robinson.

Read my latest article in Vermont’s Local Banquet to learn more about the program and the history (or more accurately, herstory) behind it.

What it all comes down to for me is this:

“I think we should hunt so that we will know how fully integrated we are in our environment and in nature, and we will experience those vivid moments of deep aliveness and deep connection [when we’re] making choices that truly matter in the moment in the woods. I think that when we experience that, we come into a deeper sense of ethics and responsibility within ourselves and all parts of our lives.” ~ Murphy Robinson
