|nto the Wild
When was the last time you paused to consider what it means to be human?
What does it mean to be full-time participants in the human experience? And what can we consider to improve that experience so that it feels more like thriving & less like surviving? And how does this affect men versus women in our society today?
We live in an age where people are less and less connected to nature, not to mention the lack of connections with each other and with ourselves. Technology, social media, and the fast-paced nature of our lives today means that we seldom get a chance to pause and recalibrate with what it means to be human, or how we could be thriving more in our roles as human beings on this planet at this time. I feel this is an important consideration for men today.
In the wake of a wave of woke-ness around much of the globe, men seem to be caught between expectations of vulnerability & openness, and the realities of a masculine energy that embodies ego, protective aggression & the hunter's single focus (all of which get him into trouble more often than not...!)
Men are faced now with a culture where the age-old concept of the patriarchal 'perfect' Vitruvian man has collided with a more transformative understanding of the intertwined masculine & feminine energies required to be wholly human.
Here at |nto the Wild we have curated an immersive & reflective series of programs for men (& their significant others) to start to find their YOU within their HUMAN within their NATURE. Through a series of wilderness & nature-based experiences lasting from a day to a week, participants are challenged to strip any past identities of "what a man is", and rather start considering how the masculine energy can work with the feminine energy - both within us and within the contexts of our relationships - to create a system of abundance, where 1 + 1 really does equal 3. This formula is intrinsic in nature, and it is for this reason that we use wild nature as the canvas for these experiences.
