Nature quest - 7-day train the trainer program
Time & Location
About the Event
From always switched on... The law of nature is that everything moves, constantly, even if we do not see, hear, smell or feel it. Yet many people experience being stuck in the same patterns from time to time. Busy, hurrying, wanting too much, little time. 2018 is the age of 24 hours online, binge-watching and sharing your life on social media. Our career, news, social obligations, children, sports and all other balls in the air demand our full attention. In short, we are constantly 'switched on'. As a result, we experience fatigue, stress and may feel undefined back to nature Nature
Quest serves a counter movement for people and organizations who want to break through these patterns and want to explore more natural ways to happiness, peace and freedom. Where can we do that better than in nature? For centuries and in many cultures that is the place to relax, get inspired and look at yourself against a different background. With nature as a teacher Nature Quest offers ancient rituals in a modern way to develop practical wisdom for everyday life.
The principles of Nature Quest programs are centuries old and have been applied in many cultures and religions; nature as a means of connecting yourself with a greater consciousness. Vision Quest One particular instrument we use is a so-called Vision Quest. In many cultures, boys on their way to adulthood were sent into the jungle to return as a man with responsibilities. That is why during a Solo Quest you always spend one or more days (alone) in nature. An experience that has helped many to reconnect with who they really are and to develop more self-confidence with regard to their own thoughts and feelings. This process almost always results in more peace of mind, renewed insight and practical wisdom on a daily basis. In a Vision Quest, you challenge yourself by stepping out of all your daily routines for some time. To reconnect with who you are without all these conscious and unconscious attachments. Practically it means that you will spend more than 24-hours alone in Nature one a fixed spot, without a telephone, books or writing materials. You have a 'tarp' (a cover) against the rain and wind, a mattress and sleeping back to sleep and the necessarily clothes. And your own thoughts and feelings of course, to explore on a deeper level who you are, want to be and what you want to do. A firm step back, with nature as a teacher.
Other instruments In addition to the Vision Quest this ToT will introduce many other instruments that can be applied in developing wisdom on the personal and organizational level, such as campfire talks, intention walks, fire rituals and meditations. We will also work with ancient, almost forgotten rituals and practices from Vietnam. In addition, we invite all facilitators that answer this call to share their own wisdom and practices. Together we can create a unique experience that will lay the foundation for a thriving Nature Quest Community in Vietnam.
