More thAn a therapy session
Sometimes we need something big and different to create change in our lives. We need something more than an hour squeezed in between the routine of our day to day lives. Going into nature offers that break from technology, social media, other peoples expectations, and the things in our daily life that make it hard to shift old habits and patterns.
This is a unique and immersive experience where you will be encouraged to push your limits of exploration. To interact with the sights, sounds, and vastness of the outdoors, all with the assurance that the space is being secured by your fellow travelers and your certified wilderness guide and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Zoe Gillis.
Escape the city
Imagine showing up to a private campsite beautifully and perfectly arranged for your arrival. Everything is taken care, the gear, the food, and the flow of scheduled activities.
You have the time and the space to fully immerse yourself in an experience where you will be guided through meditation, journaling, and sound to slowly disconnect from social media, your phone, and daily pressure. Then throughout the weekend spend time reconnecting to your inner state of peace through yoga, meaningful conversations around the fire, and solo.
Taking Care Of You
Often we hear the call of the mountains or the desert, but don’t pursue the possibilities. Whether its because of busyness, the pull of other people, or trying to do too much, taking the time to slow down and feel grounded gets pushed aside.
Everything about this weekend is designed to give you a deeper understanding of yourself. When you return home you will be equipped with skills that will help you better manage stress, deal with difficult emotions, and stay true to who you are and what you want.
Begin a journey of transformation that will lead you back to yourself by spending time with others in nature, going to a sound bath at the Integratron, and playing on the rocks in Pioneer Town, CA.
