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
This special episode includes a 30 minute trancework exercise. I stack 4 different spiritual hygiene exercises, one after the other, to connect with earth, water, air and fire.
