Hey there, Ekone community!
We know that times feel uncertain right now, and that all of our Ekone campers are quarantined, just like we are! Without school, friends, or routine, it can be easy to not know what to do, so we are hoping to bring some ways to capture the Ekone spirit, keep hope and curiosity alive, and provide some simple things for you to do at home.
We are switching up our routines to include some digital Ekone activities – videos of what we’re up to at the ranch, guidance for craft and cooking ideas, research projects, and prompts to encourage reflection, deep thinking, and silliness during this time. We know that it’s so important for all of us to call on our tools for contemplation and service to stay grounded in our bodies and connected to our communities.
Some themes you can expect:
Ekone land (plants, seasonal changes, sit spots)
Shop and carpentry skills (bunkhouse updates, how-to small projects)
Kitchen and cooking (cooking with Chris!)
Crafting (home projects)
Service (how can we help our communities and places at this time?)
Connection (secret pals, anyone?)
We also want to hear what YOU want to see from the ranch! Favorite horse you want updates about? A project you worked on? Let us know how we can bring you some joy, levity, and connection from here.
How to join:
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make sure you get every "lesson" as soon as it's ready! We'll also post to Facebook and Instagram, but joining the "Ekone At Home" list is the best way to be sure you stay in the loop.
Help keep 'em coming:
Can you help support Ekone and our staff so that we can keep great content coming to you throughout the "stay at home" and so that the ranch will be strong and ready for action on the other side of this disruption? Please Make a Donation!
