Our adult programs focus on using wilderness time to explore and face the areas of life that need some attention. Whether this means overcoming an addiction, honoring a success, marking a transition, facing elder-hood, dealing with relationships, searching for a way to live your calling, taking time to check-in with yourself, or just to get away, the environment created for the adult trips is a fertile soil in which to work (and play).

Adult trips will often center around a specific focus. Usually this focal point takes the shape of an extended solo experience. However, other adult trips emphasize arts, writing, meditation, natural history, counsel, primitive skills, and ecopsychology.

Like other trips, the adult quest is beginner level. The hiking is not overly rigorous, and we often utilize a base-camp model in which ample time is spent enjoying our home in a beautiful back-country location.

California High Country Adult Quest

Date: 
August 10, 2008 - August 18, 2008

This wilderness experience emphasizes the solo as a rite of passage. Many of us seek a method of incorporating important events into our lives. How do we grieve losses, celebrate achievements, or honor major changes? What methods do we have for claiming our elderhood, parenthood, or grandparenthood?

The solo experience is an opportunity to personally honor what is at hand, and to refresh one's own life path. It is a chance to slow down and meet the ground beneath your feet, and from that place, to take an invigorating breath of life. Participants will join together to undergo a 3 day/2 night solo fast in a secluded wilderness setting. There are many ways to spend this time, and yours will be all your own. The trip includes a short, beginner-level backpack to our base camp location.

No prior experience is required. $675 per person, includes transportation and all dinners. Ages 18 and up welcome.

This trip is not open for registration at this time.
