Wilderness Fast 

JUNE 22-30, 2018

The heart of this journey is a 3 day and night solo immersion without shelter, food or human company.

 

“If the modern world is to start maintaining things, it will have to redefine itself. A new culture will have to develop, in which neither humans and their inventions nor God is at the center of the universe. What should be at the center is a hollow place, an empty place where both God and humans can sing and weep together.”

— Martin Prechtel 

“A gift comes to you through no action of your own, free, having moved toward you without your beckoning. It is not a reward; you cannot earn it, or call it to you, or even deserve it. And yet it appears. Your only role is to be open-eyed and present. Gifts exist in a realm of humility and mystery- as with random acts of kindness, we do not know their source.”

— Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
