Can you imagine yourself spending a night alone in the wild with close to nothing, feeling at ease, confident, grateful for being fully alive, and growing to a new level of awareness and vitality?
In earth-based cultures, some form of this foundational deep nature connection initiatory experience was a part of every person’s journey to becoming an adult anchored in his or her core self.
