Wilderness

make space for the new

Wilderness is our retreat format for leaders and change-makers who want to experience the power of being deeply immersed in the wilderness – in solitude. On your way through the wild, you will leave the familiar behind to make space for the emerging new.

Wilderness Highlights

Overview

Our wilderness retreat is a demanding 5-day curriculum that helps leaders and decision-makers transition through a major crossroads of life: We facilitate a modern rite of passage into the deeper layers of adulthood. Our participants are prepared to leave the familiar and unneeded behind so they can give space to something new that wants to emerge in their lives.
The rawness and abundance of the wilderness acts like a mirror to give us clarity on what really matters in life. Our science-backed and tradition wisdom-inspired curriculum will help you to connect with deep layers of your mind, emotions, and body.
Are you ready to enter a period of solitude, fasting and exposure to nature? If so, you might begin walking a new path in life.

 The Wilderness retreat offers a beautiful yet demanding introduction into the world of altered states of consciousness (ASC). ASC are conditions that are significantly different from an ordinary waking state. These states temporarily change the overall pattern of subjective experience and allow us to perceive ourselves as well as the world around us from an entirely different perspective. We can take a step back from our routine ways of thinking, feeling, and sensing and hence become emotionally, intellectually and viscerally more receptive to the present moment as well as more attuned to the people around us. ASC can be experienced through a wide range of modalities, e.g. mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, some forms of bodywork, prolonged deliberate physical exertion, or psychedelics. Many of these practices have long traditions of use to promote growth and healing.
