“The Sacred Passage has been one of the most, if not the most, significant events in my life."
-Bob Burgess (Pacific Northwest)
Sacred Passage Program
You and your fellow "Passagers," a group of three to twelve like-minded individuals, come together in one of the many sacred places we're helping to preserve worldwide. Surrounded by the transporting beauty of your environment, John P. Milton, or a highly skilled Sacred Passage guide, provides 5 days of Awareness Training to prepare you for your 6-7 days of solitary AllOne time, and to help you reintegrate upon your return. The core of these teachings are based on the WoN Twelve Guiding Principles of Natural Liberation, which are essentialized spiritual teachings inspired by many Earth-connected lineages.
Some of the practices you will learn are: Meditation, Qigong, GaiaFlow, wilderness skills, overtoning, techniques for transmuting emotional and energetic blockages, and the Eleven Directions Ceremony.
These methods from the Awareness Training portion of your Sacred Passage retreat will come into play during your wilderness solo, known as AllOne time. A typical Sacred Passage includes 6-7 days and nights of solo AllOne time, giving you an unique opportunity to sink deeply into your awareness training teachings in an environment that is supportive of your spiritual process. The depth of integration between Inner and Outer Nature that can be achieved is solely up to your commitment and openness to the experience.
Your safety and well-being is of our utmost concern; in fact, participating in a Passage is as safe as going camping. A uniquely designed "buddy system" with daily checkpoints allows you, your fellow Passagers, and your Guide to verify the safety of everyone involved, while still honoring your solitude. In addition, a base camp is located nearby, and a whistle call brings an adjoining Passager or Guide into your site within a few minutes.
While you're in your AllOne time, electronics and campfires are not permitted. Also, reading and writing are limited to your notes from Awareness Training and the book Sky Above, Earth Below by John P. Milton. You may eat simple, preferably organic, foods of your preference and enjoy the comforts of your own tent. Simplification during your AllOne time is essential. Eliminating the trappings of everyday life unleashes your true essence, allowing the qi energy you gather from Gaia to permeate your body without being drained.
Attune to your Inner Nature in alignment with Nature’s rhythms. Imagine yourself in peaceful solitude, deep in a beautiful, pristine wilderness. No distractions, nothing to disturb the tranquility. Alone. All One. This is your Sacred Passage.
Are you ready to experience the unlimited possibilities of connecting with Nature?
