Details

During 3 days of immersion in the wilderness near Aspen, participants engage in a reflective examination of Man's relationship to nature. We explore the meaning of wilderness in history, religion, philosophy, and psychology. We experience wilderness as a deep salve and antidote to the pressures of contemporary life. Three days of trail hiking, communing at a mountain hut, star gazing around a compfire, and sharing ideas about wilderness often become amojng the most fulfilling experiences prticipants have ever had in natue.

Moderated discussions centered on a notebook of pre-assigned readings widen our circle to include Thoreau, Muir, Wordsworth, Leopold, Jack Turner, Annie Dillard, Roderick Nash, and others. On the trail, we contemplate the fragile balance between our often conflicting needs for society and solitude, industry and environment, technology and nature.
