NATURE QUEST – EMPOWERING THE CHANGE MAKERS
PATHFINDER TRAINING IN NATURE, INCLUDING 72 HOUR SOLO VISION QUEST IN VÅLÅDALEN, SWEDEN
Busy rythms in life make it essential to regularly step back and reevaluate the paths we walk. For millenia people have stepped into nature to recharge – to be challenged in new ways – or to simply smell the cool fresh air. As our lives speed up this becomes in- creasingly important, but unfortunately also increasingly rare. If the time has come for you to evaluate the path your on, then join us this summer in Sweden.
Knowing your inner self is at the heart of true selfleadership. This WiLD training provides a setting for you to establish a deeper inner connection. By removing the noise of everyday life you will enable yourself to connect to what is emerging in your life and get in touch with your deeper purpose. We invite you to immerse yourself and listen inwards. To de-mask and enter a safe space away from societal expectations. You will gain a re-calibrated inner compass that allows you to summon balance and focus in the places where decisions are made, to make you a ”Pathfinder” for your self and others.
Get WiLD is a powerful personal leadership and awareness training in nature (we call it a Pathfinder training) and is catered to leaders and social entrepreneurs around the world for up to 20 participants. It is a contemporary version of the ancient tradition of going into nature alone for contemplation and renewal. At the core of the training is the 3-day solo in nature, creating a setting for you to relax, find harmony and establish a deeper connection to your inner self and a deeper sense of interconnectedness with the natural world. Before and after the solo you will be engaged in group processes with your co-participants, camp-fire dialogs and meditation practices to deepen your experience.
Your Nature Quest and wilderness experience can result in a dramatic reduction of daily stress, an increase in creativity, and a more clear, centered and harmonious awareness, all of which leave you well equipped to handle the challenges and opportunities that life may have to offer. If you choose to trust: the natural world will bring you profound peace, selfrespect and revelation – your authentic self.

The solo in nature is at the core of the training. It creates a setting for you to slow down, balance yourself and establish a deeper understanding of your inner and out- er nature. Be- fore and after the solo you will be engaging in exercises with your co-participents including campfire dialogs and meditation practices to deepen your experience and gain insight into the unfolding process of embodying your authentic leadership.
The program will give you the opportunity to enhance your awareness by practicing mindfulness both individually and through guided meditation. More importantly the setting allows you to gain sufficient distance to your everyday rythms to step back and reevaluate the path you are on. As Einstein said: “No problem can be solved from the same level of thinking that created it”. The newly acquired clarity and connectedness that arises from this experience is an invaluable gift for life.
The program is modeled on the Sacred Passage training developed by John P. Milton, coach to management gurus like Peter Senge and Otto Scharmer merged with Naturakademins Pathfinder training used in many international Top Leader forum.

Vålådalen is a beautiful valley near Åre, Sweden and has been the home of Sami peoples for generations. We will meet the local caretakers who still preserve the ancient Sami traditions, camp by a pristine lake and gather around a fire in a traditional Sami Kota. For the solo’s we will climb the mountain Ottfjället. A mountain ripe with sacred sites and amazing vistas. Read about the location on nulltjarnsgarden.se (Swedish).
