Our twelve-day Sacred Passage is the foundational program of The Way of Nature Fellowship. This program offers you the opportunity to explore your intrinsic, spiritual connection to all of nature, and to the ultimate Source of all Being.
You and your fellow "Passagers" — a group of three to twelve likeminded individuals — come together in one of the many sacred places we're helping to preserve worldwide. Surrounded by the transporting beauty of your environment, a highly skilled guide provides five days of instruction in Awareness Training. The core of these teachings are based on Twelve Principles, which are essentialized spiritual teachings from many earth connected lineages.
“Attune the inner pace of your life with Nature's rhythms through ancient principles and teachings. Imagine yourself alone, deep in a beautiful, pristine wilderness. No distractions, nothing to disturb the tranquility. Alone. All One.”
Some of the practices covered are: meditation, qi gong, GaiaFlow, wilderness skills, overtoning, techniques for transforming blocked emotions, and the 11 Direction Ceremony.
The practices learned from The Awareness Training come into play during your wilderness solo; the depth of integration between your inner and outer nature that can be achieved is solely up to you.
Your safety and well-being is of our utmost concern; in fact, participating in a Passage is as safe as going on a hike. A uniquely designed "buddy system" with daily checkpoints allows you, your fellow Passagers and your Guide to verify the safety of everyone involved, while still honoring your solitude. In addition, a well-staffed base camp is located nearby, and a whistle call brings an adjoining solo partner or Guide into your site within a few minutes.
While on solo, no reading, writing or campfires are permitted. You may eat simple foods of your preference and enjoy the comforts of your own tent. When you remove the trappings of everyday life, your essence may be revealed.
Your wilderness solo experience can result in a dramatic reduction of daily stress, a substantial increase in creativity, feelings of deep peace, and a more clear, centered and harmonious awareness, all of which leave you more than well equipped to handle any challenge life may have to offer.
If you choose to trust: the natural world will bring you profound peace, self-respect and revelation.
