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.
