The basic principle of a wilderness Solo is you go out into nature, the more remote the better, and confine yourself to a very small area for a set period of time. Our Solo will be for about 22 hours. During this period, you forego anything that might come between yourself and your own solitude. No phone. No books or other reading material. No fire. Nothing to allow you to be distracted. Participants may or may not bring food. Bring your preferred sleeping gear (hammock, tent, lean-to, etc.) and personal items. Keep in mind when you have nothing to do for hours, the thought of food can be an all-encompassing preoccupation, undermining the entire project of unmediated communion with nature. There is an extraordinary transformative power in the practice of sitting and doing nothing, and thereby slowing your mind and body to a meditative rhythm in nature. After this period of immersion, you step outside of your circle, and you re-enter the world. Snack provided upon completion. Ages 18 and older. $20 per person. Registration required.
