This experiential program addresses the deficits in wholeness related to our narrow information and skill-based education and training. It is entitled Physician, Whole Then Heal Thyself and is a 5 day intensive and experiential exploration of our human psyches as unique expressions of the universal forces and patterns of wilderness and nature. Our “wilder” minds possess astonishing resources, untapped potentials and depths that we might not even know exist until we discover how to access them, cultivate their powers, and eventually integrate them into our everyday lives. In this intensive, we’ll access these depths and potentials — which we call the four facets of the Self, or the four dimensions of our wilder human wholeness.

We will explore, discover, and consciously cultivate the following:

  1. the Nurturing and Generative Adult who embodies deep heart-centered thinking and leads us to our deepest Healing, Teaching, Leading, and Mentoring
  2. the Wild Indigenous One who embodies mature and embodied emotionality.
  3. the Innocent Sage whose gifts of full-presence sensing allow us to become wise, clear-minded, and light-hearted so we can see the big picture and embrace paradox.
  4. the Muse/Beloved whose gifts are the imaginative, idealistic, visionary, who can bring forth the never before seen, clearly something needed in our age.



This is an all-camping program held at the Cottonwood Group Campground. Breakfast and Dinner are included in the program fee. Lunch and snacks to be provided by the participant.
