About Expeditions for Life

Waking to the body of awareness and wisdom that lies at the bedrock of your inner-wilderness. You are supported to discover your own immaculate awareness in nature. We gently explore the natural landscapes of the wilderness within and without to find out all that you are NOT, and reveal what you Truly Are.

Holding the Container

Travelling together as a crew gives rise to the opportunity for clear recognition of the presence of Being.

We hold a simple container for clear recognition of your Self as true nature. Our approach is to remain present to that which unfolds naturally in each individual’s awakening of Self-discovery in relationship with whatever life presents along the way.

“I find one vast garden spread out all over the universe. All plants, all human beings, all higher mind bodies are about in this garden in various ways, each has his own uniqueness and beauty. Their presence and variety give me great delight. Every one of you adds with his special feature to the glory of the garden.”

– Anandamayi Ma

Wilderness Outing / Retreat Within

Expeditions for Life offers a rite of passage into the Self through wilderness outings that focus the attention of awareness on Self realization.

In service to the community of awakening beings, we set the sails in motion for retreat into the divine wilderness within.

By means of water and by foot, we venture peacefully into nature. Our transportation focus is on the use of solar, wind and waste vegetable oil to negate the use of fossil fuel.

Following the Cycles of Nature

The Natural Learning Cycle

Nature has a way of arranging every experience to help us reveal more of our true Self.  Day and night, birth and death, summer to winter, growth and decay. With the growth of Awareness in Nature, we get a glimpse of the inner workings of consciousness.

And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”

-Friedrich Nietzsche

This discovery is like finding our inner compass that we learn to use for directing our attention back towards what is true, what is simple, what is real. We begin to realize that nature is life within us, guiding us through our experiences, working invisibly to align our mind and body with the One true heart.

Natural Curiosity and Passion

At the deepest level, we are led by natural curiosity and wonder to express our most authentic individual nature.  Uncovering this truth can be one of the greatest challenges in modern day society.  In recognizing the true Self, those natural curiosities begin to enliven and as we follow the guidance of the True Heart, those inner-child passions come to light.

Whether young or old, your innocence wants to be expressed from within You. Re-membering child passions at any age, opens us to the possibility of becoming wholly what we truly are. The pure awareness of Being. You only need to look at some of the greatest masters who have walked the earth. They all have one thing in common… child like passion!

To be fully a Human Being is not in the Doing.

There is no forced effort, coercion or concentration. It can even appear as though nothing is happening.

Coyoye, the Trickster!

Nearly invisible, almost always a trickster. Our approach is to surrender to the divinely orchestrated play of the world, to pay attention to greater awareness, to mirror natural curiosities and to be the aliveness felt within the One true heart.

Inspiration, curiosity and passion arise from within fueling a natural desire to discover more of what life has to offer. Inner armouring dissolves and individuals begin opening up more fully into life, stepping into the truth of who they are.

A healthy, happy and caring world comes to light once every individual decides to let go of identification with objects and the mind’s positionality in the world only to surrender into the timeless presence of Being.
