Nature Connected and Soul Directed
An Earth-Based Institute (EBI) Wilderness Quest is an 10 day, small-group wilderness experience culminating in a rite-of-passage ceremony.
The Wilderness Quest is an ancient ritual found in nearly every culture. The rhythms, beauty, and harsh realities of the wilderness act as mirrors—reflecting deep truths about who we are. A critical aspect to the Quest is an awakening—The Call to Adventure—often an external or internal event that spurs an individual to action.
As response to that call, the Wilderness Quest can be a catalyst for great change—the perfect answer to meeting the challenges of major life transitions, such as:
• changes in career or retirement
• relationship changes
• financial or health crises
• depression or trauma
“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.”
