The Wilderness Immersion Experience (Vision Quest) is a journey into the wilderness to support physical, psychological, and spiritual growth in the individual and the collective. ]The structure and curriculum of our journey has been adapted from the sacred practices that have nourished earth-centered communities world-wide for thousands of years. The Wilderness Immersion supports us in becoming more conscious of our core wounds and core gifts. Together we are initiated into our full capacity of aliveness.
Our vision is to serve the movement of awakening while empowering us all to take responsibility for our co-creative roles in shaping our lives, our planet, and our future.
Here is how one person responded after experiencing a Wilderness Immersion with Wild Awakenings Director Skylar Wilson
Vision Quest is an indescribable experience. I faced personal challenges throughout my journey, each one I had to conquer alone while gaining insight to myself: who I was and who I wanted to become.
The personal strength, courage, and determination I found stuck with me and still helps guide me today by keeping me grounded and remembering to keep everything in perspective, regardless of what I am doing.
Skylar was phenomenal throughout the experience. He was knowledgeable and conscious about both physical and mental health, the environment, and the traditions we were doing, like smudging in and out. Skylar made me feel safe and comfortable, and with his leadership and support I evolved into a better me.

Community Council Groups
The practice of council honors the wisdom of the collection, and understands the necessity of intergenerational community and teaching. In council groups, people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and socio-economic positions, gather in a group for discussions, activities, and rituals that explore personal growth and build community. If you are interested in starting this kind of group in your community, email us at wild email@example.com, with the subject line: Intergenerational Council.
