Nature Seminars

Connect with Nature. Connect with Self.

We live in a technologically powered society which provides immense opportunity for communication, innovation and progress. But such a level of techno-saturation takes a serious toll on our organic and spiritual bodies. Through our Nature Seminars, connecting with nature is about “going out” into the wilderness–the mountains, running water and trees–so that we can then “go into” the wilderness–exploring the inner-workings of Self. We don’t just experience nature, we ARE nature. These outdoor excursions are intended to remove the obstacle of technology, challenge the physical body, and get up close and personal with Nature (yes…with a capital ‘N’).

You’ve imagined yourself on the mountain trail, packing your own gear, filtering your daily water supply from the streams and lakes, but you’ve never known how to get there. You’ve longed for a deeper sense of purpose, a more enriching spiritual life, a stronger sense of Self, but you haven’t known where to start. These seminars were designed for you. These seminars were created with the beginner and the more-experienced in mind, so if you’re new to the outdoors, meditation and yoga, or looking for more opportunities to deepen your practice, these seminars are the next step. Now you have no excuses.

Let us be your guides.

Each Nature Seminar is designed to challenge participants in body, mind, and spirit. Our first excursion, Grove Creek Loop, is an overnight backpacking trip that will include a six mile roundtrip hike, overnight camping, the “Silence Challenge”, Campfire Meditation, Bed-Roll Yoga, and more. Coyote Gulch, our second excursion, is a 3 day-2 night backpacking trip that will include a 15 mile roundtrip hike, overnight camping, the “Alone Challenge”, Campfire Meditation, Bed-Roll Yoga, the Star Walk, and more. All participants attend a Summit Meeting, held three weeks prior to the excursion. There, participants will be instructed in basic first-aid skills, given assistance in their equipment checklist, and mentored in creating their own “Mind, Body, Spirit Fitness Goals” as preparation for the excursion. All meals are provided, and depending on which option you choose, equipment is either provided for you or personally supplied. All fuel and transportation to and from Provo is included in the price.
Once tuition has been paid in full, participants will be required to disclose and sign the following: Medical History/Personal Information Form and Waiver/Liability Release Form. Participants must adhere to the Rules & Regulations of each Nature Seminar, which will be provided to the participant upon enrollment.
