The Journey from Fear to Freedom

Grand Tetons, Wyoming

Adventure begins May 4, 2022

The calling. A beacon to return to a place within yourself. A place raw and primitive, wild and free.

To be one with the elements: the purest cleansing water, freshest revitalizing air,
sacred transformative fire, and fertile abundant earth.

Are you brave enough to leave behind everything that is familiar and set out on a truth-seeking journey?

Are you willing to see everything on this journey as a clue and everyone you meet as a teacher?

Are you willing to face some possibly difficult realities about yourself?

If so, then the truth that you seek will NOT be withheld from you.

You possess innate abilities to undertake this journey and complete the quest.

As daunting as the path appears, you have the power within you to traverse it and reap the rewards that it holds. You often forget your deep power to accomplish these feats, but if you pay attention, you find that life provides you with the wake-up calls and subtle nudges to spur you into action and guide you in the right direction.

Undertaking a Wilderness Walk requires you to embrace all aspects of life — love and fear, joy and grief, light and dark. There is no light without shadow nor comfort without pain; to avoid one is to lose the ability to experience the other.

As long as you continue to flee from the darker aspects, you remain fearful, unseen and unfulfilled. As long as there are parts of yourself that you cannot love and therefore hide from the world, you spend your life running away and blinding yourself to who you truly are.

Are YOU ready to stop running, hiding, and avoiding?

The Wilderness Walk is a portal into the dark and daunting places that hold the deepest treasures.

Although the path is formidable, a Wilderness Walker does not have to undertake the journey alone. A tribe of travelers takes the journey together along similar terrain, bearing witness to one another’s challenges, victories and discoveries. Being seen by others in this way can allow the Wilderness Walker to feel loved and accepted in ways she or he never had dreamed possible, easing the way to deeper healing. To experience true aliveness, you must be willing to undertake the journey through dark and unknown places to discover life’s true riches.

We all come to the trailhead and hear the call of the hidden path at some point in our lives.

Step onto the path and see where it leads.

This life-changing journey is for you….


If you are tired of repeating patterns that are no longer serving you.

If you want to know more about who you are and why you are here.

If you desire to uncover your deepest truth.

If you want to identify and move through all the blocks and resistance
to living a life of purpose and meaning.

If you are at the cusp of making some major life decisions and changes.

If you feel called to something greater.

“There will be times when standing alone feels too hard, too scary, and we’ll doubt our abilities to make our way through the uncertainty. Someone, somewhere, will say, ‘Don’t do it. You don’t have what it takes to survive the wilderness.’ This is when you reach up deep inside your heart and remind yourself:

“I came to the Wilderness Walk during a time of transition in my life. I had just left a job of 27 years and was filled with fear about my future. I knew I wanted to find a calling that provided deeper meaning but wasn’t sure how to take the next step. I was paralyzed by my fear of failure. The Wilderness Walk showed me how to let go of my fear and build a deeper faith in myself. Through my journey, I uncovered my deeper truth, learned how to listen to my heart and tap into a deeper inner knowing. Now I am far more confident and trust the I am being guided one step at a time.”
