We are 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.
THE WOLF CONNECTION
What Wolves Can Teach Us About Being Human
“THE APPROACH OF A WOLF… subtle, almost in slow motion, confident, and decisive, seeking connection on her own terms – can stretch time, open the heart, and awaken the soul. Her deep unwavering amber eyes locked on you, seeking through you, have a disarming effect. In striking shades of white, brown, gray and black, this perfectly engineered predator moves gracefully, effortlessly, each bone and muscle connected, alert, and in balance. Her massive paws spread over the ground with each step she takes towards you, projecting a wave of power that hits you long before she is near.”
The Wolf Connection Podcast is available now to download and listen to wherever you get your podcasts! We will be exploring the intricate bond between humans and wolves, seeking to better understand our true relationship with one of humankind’s earliest teachers; the wolf. Our discussions will include the experiences had by our visitors, students and staff during programs, events, and day-to-day operations at Wolf Connection, the dynamics of the wolf pack at Wolf Connection, wolves in the wild and their impact on the national landscape, and stories of human and wolf empowerment through all facets of the organization and beyond!
