The activities are carried out in small groups with one experienced facilitator (supported by an outdoor guide or language coach) for every 10 participants. The activities take place at camp sites in protected areas of wilderness apt for nature based learning and adventure and will vary depending on the location and group’s needs and talents.
Solo time in the wild
The solo time is about making space to be silent, listen and reconnect with a deep understanding of your life’s purpose and the changes you may be going through at this point in your life; a magical and potentially transformative experience. After preparation in the group you will be alone in the wild for 12-24 hours. This is followed by sharing and celebrating personal stories with the group.
