From Chaos To Quest - An Adventure in Nature

From Chaos to Quest – An Adventure in Nature is a “wilderness therapy” adventure facilitated by Owen Okie, wilderness guide to our inner nature, and mountain guide Tim Hamlet.

Explore nature, both inner and outer, during a 6-day adventure by canoe and foot in the Northwest Highlands.

Join Tim Hamlet and Owen Okie for a journey of healing and inspiration while canoeing and hiking in the magical wilds of Assynt. During this adventure, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your life — exploring your own sense of purpose and the challenges that hold you back. It should be a giant leap forward for your creativity.

Learn stress-management skills to use in your daily life so you can address your own physical and mental health. With our help, you will learn to care exquisitely for yourself, exploring the paths that matter to you so that you are traveling authentically.

Come spend a bit of time developing your emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills. Return home set up for the rest of your journey with a nature-based map of your psyche: an invaluable tool for better understanding yourself and your relationships with people and nature.  Are you brave enough!?

Why from Chaos to Quest?

From Chaos to Quest is a response to the current state of the world, the possibility for something creative and new to emerge from stormy waters, and how your day to day action, when aligned with your core values, can benefit yourself and the world around you.

Deep beneath the turbulence of our times there move hidden currents of meaning. These mythological, archetypal and universal strands interwoven into a complex tapestry of life, evolving, both individually and collectively. How do the individual strands of meaning and purpose in your life interweave into a cohesive and unique vision that integrates into the broader tapestry of life? Without meaning we are lost, adrift in the chaos of our times, the violence, the numbness, the heart-rending rat-race pace of modern life. In nature our physical, emotional, and mental rhythms slow into a greater coherence within ourselves, between us and other, and us and nature. In this state of coherence creativity can emerge from chaos, clarity from muddle, inspiration from lethargy,  and vision and purpose from meaninglessness.

Has time spent outdoors supported you through difficult times? How have you benefited from the healing and transformative support of nature? What if you could learn to access this support as needed to uplift you and find clarity in troubled times or when in search of wisdom and inspiration? Let me know how nature has supported you.

Testimonial from a previous EarthMind workshop:

“I’d not done an exercise like this before and so had no expectations. It turned out to be a very profound experience that blew me away. Accessing Nature’s voice lead me far into the forest and further still into the heart of me. It helped me to debunk many recent fears by illustrating very strongly my life’s journey and my actions needed for resolution. I came away feeling like I’d had given my soul a spa treatment!”

When: Sept 26th to Oct 2nd, 2017.

Where: The Highlands of Scotland.

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland - paper presented at European Shin Conference 2012

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland

Since the time of the Buddha people have looked to Buddhism as a source of salvation from their unhappiness and confusion. In the modern age, psychotherapy has become a route which many people choose to help them face and move beyond their personal suffering. Not surprisingly many Western therapists tend to gravitate towards Buddhist ideas and, conversely, Buddhists are often interested in exploring how their faith…

I wrote this article for Running Tide back in January but it didnt get published and as Running Tide has only just come out, things had obviously moved on. I'm putting it up here because it seems like a pity to waste a good article - or even a mediocre one!
