WOLF CONNECTION is a unique educational sanctuary and wilderness retreat center that brings people together through direct relationship with rescued wolves for the purpose of empowering the next generation to become authentic leaders and stewards of the earth. With the help of the animals, at-risk groups reconnect with nature, learn to be of service by responsibly caring for another being, and work towards becoming the kind of person they want to be through Wolf Therapy™. The animals help them focus on their impulses, feelings and emotions in a constructive way; they learn to forgive and give others (and themselves) a second chance. At Wolf Connection we believe that the deep and conscious understanding of our relationships with animals and the environment is paramount to our development as strong individuals, productive societies, and as a sustainable civilization on this planet. The Wolf Connection Ranch is the real-time, real-space lab where that belief is explored and tested.
Once a bond is established, we apply our Wolf Principles© and The Nine Realms of the Wolf© to help participants assimilate their experience so they can:
• Understand the nature of human relationships and the circumstances leading to love, support and empowerment, as well as cruelty, abuse and neglect.
• Identify the characteristics of a healthy peer-group in order to replace aggression, segregation, and rivalry with the understanding, respect, and mutual acceptance needed to develop constructive, healthy communities.
• Learn the effective communication, collaboration, and self reflection skills needed to sustain such communities.
• Find their place in the world.
