TNP80: Quest Q&A ~ Your Top 10 FAQs Answered By Ones Who’ve Just Returned From The Wilderness

88 minutes

I'm so excited about this episode! It's me with four dear souls who've recently returned from their 12-day Wilderness Quests experience.  These are demigods, I'm telling you! They endured a tougher Quest than I ever have. If you have a fear about doing a wilderness quest, they have good advice for you. My guests today will address your questions and concerns about:

- hunger and fasting - the dark and wild animals - enduring the cold - getting lost - logistical concerns about gear, preparation, and general safety - being bored/self-sabotaging behaviours - PTSD/trauma responses to being left alone in the dark and the wild - facing the abyss/existential dread - acting out/acting in  - not wanting to come back I also ask them, how did they know that a Wilderness Quest was the right next step for them on their spiritual path?



In this episode, Carl-Greger mentioned the book The Wind Is My Mother, by Bear Heart
