Meeting Wholeness in the Wilderness

June 23 @ 4:00 pm - June 28 @ 4:00 pm

$225 – $300

A summer immersion into the wilderness of your wholeness

Meeting ourselves as Whole and living from that place is our birth-rite. This rite is sometimes veiled by the pressure of a culture that has ignored aspects of wholeness — such as death and darkness, birth and aliveness, play & innocence, and initiation & purpose — yet reclaiming our wholeness is accessible through our meeting with the natural world… in such a way we meet the wilderness of our heart — the place of natural beauty & purpose – beyond any cultural masks or assumed responsibilities. In this immersion we will contact wholeness by exploring the four shields of human psyche with nature —- specifically the primary, current shield we are each working with and any obstacles and gateways within the shield.

Our time together with the land will be taken up with medicine walks, one sunrise to sunset day quest, council, a mixture of guided & silent seated and hiking meditations, art, and primitive practices for relating deeper to the wilderness.

This immersion will take place with the Ragged Wilderness. We will rendezvous at a direct location near Marble, CO at 4 PM on June 23rd before heading to a remote camping site. The site is accessible by car. We will close our circle by 5PM on June 28th. This event occurs after the Solstice Meditation & Nature Immersion in a nearby area. If you should choose to sign up for both events, please visit our website Participants will be dispersed camping on the land. There will be a central camping kitchen and communal area for gathering.
