Wild Mind

“Readiness is all”


In these urgent and confusing times, we are longing to find our place in the web of life, and recover our wild belonging. To do this, we quest to “whole” our minds and bodies from cultural and ancestral woundings of disconnection and separation from Nature. But we are Nature.

You are invited to an experiential Nature immersion to rewild your psyche and animal body into searing aliveness, wholeness and participation with the more than human world.  Enter the ecology of the Wild Mind where you will recover innate, undomesticated wholeness. Welcome to a new paradigm that is not founded on healing psychological wounds. Instead, you grow beyond your own and socially-imposed limitations using your full human magnificence.

You will be introduced to the Nature-Based Map of the Psyche, offered in the book Wild Mind by Bill Plotkin and the Animas Valley Institute, using the Four Ways of Knowing yourself and the world through sensory, emotional-somatic, deep imagination, and heart centered thinking. Immersed in the embrace of nearby coastal California wilds, you will embark on a Wild Mind Quest of psyche and body:

  • Recover facets of your wild wholeness
  • Develop tools to self-heal personal wounds, outgrow your comfort zone
  • Deepen your connection to Self and your love of Nature
  • Cultivate innate resources for the Quest to Soul
