PeerSpirit Wilderness Quests
Time in the natural world is key to keeping alive our own sense of wonder. It enhances our powers of observation and reflection. And it can offer guidance for our own life situation.
Are you seeking to mark a transition in your life? To reconnect with your inner wisdom? To clarify a life situation? To learn from nature? We invite you to join us in a wilderness quest or rite of passage. Combining an immersion into the natural world with the support of community and time for solitude, a wilderness quest is a powerful way to take the next step in your life.
The quest aspect of PeerSpirit work draws on Ann's four decades of experience as a guide, which led to her first book, Teaching Kids to Love the Earth, and the wisdom harvested from her own midlife rite of passage, recorded memorably in Deep Water Passage. Ann's latest book, Keepers of the Trees - A Guide to Re-Greening North America, captures her lifelong devotion to the natural world and her commitment to linking the stories of human beings to the earth. She also combines her passions for nature and writing in PeerSpirit's weekend workshop, "Writing Nature's Wisdom," co-taught with Christina.
The container of personal interaction in our wilderness experiences is held deeply by PeerSpirit Circle. And as a certified Wilderness First Responder, Ann's steadfast presence and wilderness skills offer a richness and safety that is both inspiring and reassuring. The setting of all our quests is accessible to a wide range of physical abilities.
Ann is also available as a mentor for those who wish to prepare for, integrate, or deepen the lessons from nature.
