Our Programs


Sustain compassionate efforts of Individuals. Sustain the mission and impact of Organizations. Cultivate cultures of compassion for a better World.

Our Community Events and Programs are open to any adults who want to tap into compassion and our Custom Programs can be created for any organization or group.

Our programs sustain the compassionate efforts of individuals.

Our programs contribute to the well-being of individual participants through nature exposure, provide mindfully guided experiences in the wilderness context that contribute to personal resiliency, and increase knowledge and skills associated with the wilderness. For ways to link up with our community and participate, please see our Community Programs or Wilderness Engagement for Community Renewal Programs.

Our programs sustain the mission and continued impact of organizations.

Our programs increase group cohesion and interdependence, help mitigate the effects of vocational burnout, assist in navigating points of cultural and organizational transition, and provide space to reflect on purpose and meaningful work. To design a custom wilderness encounter for your group or organization, visit the Design a Custom Program page. Current examples include:

Our programs cultivate cultures of compassion for a better world.

Our programs provide a container where the principles of community may be modeled in a wilderness context that deepens social ties and where conversation can be focused on justice and/or environmental issues. Check out our Community Events like Beauty Walks or Beauty Paddles (that are free and open to the public) where we hope to cultivate compassion and grow our wilderness community.
