Wild Immersion

Through wilderness living skills, ritual, leadership, mythology, and rites of passage training we will enrich the ground of your deeper purpose and calling to become clearer and a guiding voice in your life.

Intimacy Weekend Retreat

Weekend: September 20 - 22, 2019

Real intimacy is the willingness to show up in relationship moment to moment. Honoring our differences, listening, receiving and giving.

Come and experience the depth of true intimacy, what lives through you in the world of relationship. Explore the ways you show up or don’t show up. Find your courage, your fears, your depth and the places that hold you back from stepping into your full YES! Yes to yourself, yes to relationship, yes to life.
