Meet Our Founder, John P. Milton

A pioneering ecologist, spiritual teacher, meditation master, vision quest leader and shaman

One of the founding fathers of the environmental movement, John P. Milton has studied extensively many of the world's great spiritual traditions with enlightened masters and in deep communion with Nature. John's love of Nature led him to do his first vision quest at the age of seven. Through Way of Nature, John introduces students to the power of immersing oneself alone in Nature and Spirit, and allowing the innate wisdom of our Three Natures (Outer, Inner and True Nature) to emerge. John is a frequent lecturer, workshop/retreat leader, meditation teacher, T'ai Chi, Qigong and Tantra Master and author of many books.

Reconnecting with the Three Natures

Our process combines Awareness Training with meditative time spent alone (AllOne) in Nature. This Awareness Training provides highly essentialized principles and practices to connect with Outer, Inner and True Nature. With roots that stem from many of the world's great liberating lineages, Way of Nature is a truly unique, effective path that illuminates indescribable joy arising out of our authentic communion with the Three Natures. 

Outer Nature 

The amazing rainbow display of the dance of all forms of existence. These forms are perceived through the nine experiential fields of Inner Nature.

Inner Nature

The perceptions and experiences of life refined through deeper connection to our five senses, energy, movement, and flow of emotions and thoughts.  

True Nature

The vast, open, clear Sacred Source Awareness Essence of your deepest Being. Formless, boundless, unborn, undying. 

"Let's spend more time with wild Nature, ideally in periods of solitude, experiencing Nature as a Sacred Space. In this Way, may we deepen our love and authentic relationship with the rest of our Family of Life. In so doing may we learn the ancient lessons of how to support harmony, balance and authentic connection with Outer, Inner and our own True Nature. 
- John P. Milton
