Held in partnership with Illuman Colorado and Influenced by Bill Plotkin’s “Wild Mind” and the work of the Animas Valley Institute, this rewilding weekend is an unforgettable experiential exploration of our innate human wholeness as created in the image of God and our connection with the natural world.
“Rewilding” is a deepening into the True Self, and an enlivening of our connection to the natural world that evokes our deepest authenticity and joy. Rewilding is an awakening to our innate affinity to the natural world and finding our place in the more-than-human-community.
In this weekend immersion you will DISCOVER:
A nature-based map of the human psyche and how to cultivate your innate wholeness and connection with the natural world
How to enter more deeply into the True Self and the strategies of the False Self
The “treasure in the field” of your untapped depth, potential, and authentic leadership
You will EXPERIENCE:
- Solitary wanderings in the wild landscape of nearly 300 acres at Highlands Camp in Allenspark, Colorado.
Deepening your journey in healing and renewal
Council, mirroring, dream and journal work
Revitalization and renewal!
