About the Event

What would it be like, to instead of simply visiting nature, build a relationship with the natural world and consequently experience less anxiety and stress?  This weekend is an opportunity to connect with nature and develop inner calm and a sense of peace.

So make that conscious choice to step out of your daily life and open to a new way of connecting with nature, self, and your spirituality. Research has long proven that connection with nature has a profound healing effect on the physical and emotional health of human beings. This weekend is a chance to connect with nature on a deeper level, get to know ourselves better, and develop a calm and alert mind. We’ll spend time throughout the weekend learning and practicing techniques for quieting the mind, including meditation, enjoying silence, and movement practices (if you’re new to these practices, you’ll get plenty of instruction).

A great opportunity for people who: experience a lot of stress and anxiety and need the solace of nature to replenish, want to hit the "reset" button, are moving through a life transition, feel lost on their current journey, are in the process of grieving and want the nurturing support of nature and community, and feel most alive and happy outdoors and want to build a deeper relationship with nature!

Designed by Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan and led by her team of therapists and coaches.  Please get in touch with any questions or special requests.

All proceeds donated to local conservation efforts and CNIT Nature Program Scholarship.

What Participants Say:

“What a special weekend! I am in awe about how smoothly and nurturing the weekend was for me! I had some idea what to expect and the weekend exceeded my expectations!! "

“I gave myself permission to step outside my comfort zone just enough to benefit from awesome personal growth. Receiving comfort from other fellow humans who feel the same anxiety as myself was very awesome. "

“The whole weekend was perfect timing for my life's journey. I feel refreshed, enlightened and new! I've been sharing my experience with my dear friends who have been wondering what my weekend was like. Joy leaps out of me as I listen to myself explaining the "Peace in the Wilderness" weekend story. I'm full of smiles!  "
