The average American spends over 10 hours each day in front of a screen giving rise to a number of physical and mental health issues.
“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to nature is going home; that wildness is a necessity.” John Muir
NO STRAIGHT LINES
We want our lives to evolve in a certain trajectory, forward and upward and keep going and don’t stop! And yet, if you look at nature, you will not find a straight line. Your life may not evolve exactly as you expect or hope. You can keep fighting that battle. Or you can find peace and freedom in your winding and weaving path.
SLOWLY BUT SURELY
Nature moves slowly. There’s a Redwood that’s 2000 years old, a Bristlecone Pine Tree that is 4,800 years old, and a Norway Spruce that’s 9,500 years old! They move slowly…but SURELY. There is a time-lapse video of a morning glory vine. The plant is rotating like a radar dish, searching and feeling around for a suitable support on which to grow.
It is very much a living, breathing, intelligent being. Your naked eye would NEVER notice this movement as it is sped up through time-lapse video. What else might our naked eye be missing because we move at such a frenzied pace?
THE FUTURE OF HEALING
If the prescription drugs and quick fixes are no longer working, maybe it’s time to try something different, more pure, and more TESTED. The New York Times reports, “The drugs of the future might come from the past: botanical treatments long overlooked by Western medicine. Nature is a superchemist. It’s been doing this for a lot longer than we or even mammals have been around. Plants have been doing this for about 400 million years.”
How it works
Each day for 6 months, you will be asked to dedicate 10 minutes to step outside, to breathe in more fresh air, to spend more time with your feet on the earth and your vision to the sky.
I’ll be right there with you as your guide leading you through meditations, telling you stories, and encouraging a daily habit of less tech and more wind, sun, rain, snow, trees, grass, soil, all the good stuff!
I searched for some of the leading experts on the wisdom of nature. You will learn from them on a daily basis over the first 6 months of 2018.
All we ask is that you take 10 minutes each day to relax, listen, and take a moment of reflection and meditation.
I’m right there with you, in the thick of life, facing all the challenges of parenting, business, marriage… All the more reason to find a moment each day for peace, quiet, and the time to stop and savor the journey. For me, meditation was a gamechanger. I struggled to find a meditation teacher who is more relatable, accessible, brings stories and humor, and delivers that kind of message day in and day out. That’s why I’ve created this program for you. I have written two books both of which reached #1 on the Amazon Healthy Living Bestseller Lists and my work fusing yoga and meditation with pop culture passions has been featured in The NY Times, O Magazine, Food + Wine, and The Wall Street Journal.
By the end of the program you will embody:
Greater sense of meaning
More trust in your instincts
Renewed appreciation for the gift of being alive
It’s time to get our feet on the earth, our eyes to the skies, our hands on the trees and get back Into the Wild!
This is an investment in peace of mind. By making this commitment, you are putting more value and time in nature, in your intuition, in a different perspective than the one happening on your computer screen.
The Six Month Online Program Includes
Into the Wild will culminate with a retreat to Alaska for the Summer Solstice.
When you think about your greatest memories of summer, they probably includes warm nights, outdoor music, ocean waves. But what about “light all night” in the the Alaskan wilderness?
Alaska (in the summer) is the most beautiful place I have experienced…EVER. Towering mountains with glaciers, bald eagles soaring overhead, and the feeling that get breathing in pure air, undying sunshine, and the sense of being very close to the top of the world!?
In 2010, yogini Katey Inman and her fearless-wilderness-guide and husband Josh Love co-founded the highly successful Anchorage Yoga and Anchorage Cycle. They are resident experts on all things Alaska and they will curate your journey, from morning yoga to epic hikes, to evenings by the fire pit with a chef serving you fresh Alaska salmon cooked in the Airstream on the beach under the midnight sun.
You will arrive in Anchorage on June 17 before we head off to Seward for two nights beachside, an unforgettable hike through the glaciers of Lost Lake, and two days venturing into the surrounding rivers and wilderness while enjoying the luxury of Alyeska.
I will be leading meditations and Katey will be guiding you through yoga sessions.
Please note, Alaska will take you to your edge. You’ll want to be in good fitness for the hiking as our culminating hike to Lost Lake is 13 miles. If exposing yourself to the great outdoors is something your are craving…you will LOVE this journey.
You will need to bring hiking/tennis shoes with strong treads, a jacket for cool nights in the low 50’s, and a willingness to dig in and explore one of the most pristine places on the planet.
Give it a try for 30 days. If you are not satisfied after the first 30 days, I will refund you in full.
