Backpacking Adventure Retreat

August 12-18, 2020

A 5-day backpacking journey through rugged Montana wilderness.

“Into the woods I go, to lose my mind and find my soul” John Muir.

Join us in exploring the wild feminine & masculine archetypes, and the inner-throne where they meet. Male & female (identifying) groups begin on opposite sides of the hike meeting on the middle day to explore the sacred relationship between masculine and feminine.

Entering into the wilderness of our psyche, we discover that in community we can explore a place where energies meet, and mirror each other. We can ask questions, be curious, and try on new understandings and insights within ourselves. With light, there is always shadow. What is the shadow of the Divine Feminine? What is the shadow of the Divine Masculine? How do these energies live in us? These subjects and more will be explored as we encounter the self, and our fellow journeyers in the backcountry.

We are made of energy and vibration. Some energy has a masculine polarity, and some has a feminine polarity. We feel best when there is balance. How do we achieve balance? Maybe through: Awareness. Curiosity. Openness. Courage. Reconfiguration. Surrender.

Knowing, accepting and working with your physical, emotional, spiritual and cognitive strengths as well as your deficits, will guide you toward the needed balance.

We will uncover, examine, and lovingly tend to the parts of ourselves that may be hidden, denied, disavowed or exiled. We will welcome ourselves home to ourselves by working together, exploring, and challenging ourselves in the wilderness. Eating, playing, and being astonished by the inner landscapes as they are mirrored to us by the incredible and pristine outer landscapes.
