We offer solo retreats for guided introspection & contemplation in nature.
Do you want to give yourself a personal time off daily routines?
Do you long for time in nature, in silence and contemplation?
Do you often feel like you’re lagging behind
and wish to change your approach to life?
Sometimes it can be valuable to take a step back and look at your life and your doing from a distance.
A week of retreat in wild nature can give you the opportunity to slow down, process, see, listen inwardly and draw inspiration from the “more than human world”.
Building up to 24 hours alone out in the forrest,
you will gain skills to be safe and comfortable out in nature. We will introduce different tools and techniques to help you dive into yourself and get in touch with your inner compass, a direction, a purpose, a meaning. This is to shift away from being in a re-active to a pro-active state of living.
You will stay in a cabin out in the woods,
close enough that it is easy to get there, far enough that it feels wild and secluded. The cabin is simple but provides a good basic comfort. You will get water from a creek nearby and use a dry toilet outside. There is a system for showering and electricity in the cabin.
The place invites you to find back to your “natural” rhythm, and attune with nature around you.
You will be provided with the gear and knowledge,
adapted to the weather and the temperature that you will meet. It is possible to do a retreat whole year round: you choose the challenge, season and moment that fits you.
During your Solo time you will be without time, phone, books and social contacts.
That helps you to be present and focus on your intention. Nature can be a mirror for you and nature images can help you to find answers to questions in your life. To get most out of the nature quest, we will give you preparatory exercises and practices for even before you arrive.
Do you dare to be by and with yourself?
Do you have the courage to be honest to yourself?
Spending time alone in nature, fasting, is a tradition
that spans throughout human history. Humans have been marking and navigating important life transitions by embarking on vision quests or other solo journeys into the wilderness since ancient times. These practices, rooted in various cultures and spiritual beliefs, have served as powerful rites of passage, allowing individuals to connect deeply with themselves and the natural world, seeking inner clarity and guidance.
