I rate their village camp as one of the greatest experiences I have had with my kids.”

“It’s difficult to put into words what I witnessed last night in this boy.
It’s as if he returned to me with a weight lifted off him, allowing his true spirit to shine through. He appeared to have an inner contentment and happiness that I’ve not seen for a while. There was a lightness to his demeanour.
I’m intrigued by it and I love it.
Jed, Miller and Finn all found the Wild Village Camp exceeded their expectations. They all got different things out of it and they’ve arrived home in a better place than when they left.
Thanks Sam and Kate for initiating the empowering experience.”
— Renee Robertson
Spending a week in village dynamic, with such whole human beings, freed from the four walls of the dominant paradigm, in an expansive dance with the ecology of all that is, with no distractions from connection and from presence has totally opened up all the channels of my heart that were clogged with responsibility. 

What a beautiful feeling.

I am alive once more.

It feels akin to when I first became a mother: wonder, joyfulness, beauty, seeing through their eyes, playfulness, engagement, presence, I am awakened to their preciousness. I am awakened to their love. 

I am awakened.

Coming away, I wept at both gates.

 During these few days, life seemed to slow down, connections were deeply felt and challenges were resolved in a most natural and tribal way. I was unaware just how profound and transformational this time in the bush would be.

I felt like there were all these instincts and senses waking up that I had never known existed…

I loved it, it was a practical and spiritual learning.
It has changed my life, my way of thinking

Vision Quest

Just over a week ago I returned from one of the most amazing experiences of my life (and I’ve been fortunate to have a life of many amazing experiences so that’s saying something!), which is unfolding every day since I returned and I think will continue to for many years.

As part of a Vision Quest Ceremony I spent 4 days and nights alone in the bush with water, a tarp, warm clothes & sleeping bag.

I, and several others brave or crazy enough to do this in mid-winter were supported by some truly remarkable people- Sam Robertson and Kate Rydge of Nature Philosophy. They have devoted their lives to supporting adults and children to connect more deeply with nature, ourselves and each other and they do an incredible job of this.
I can’t recommend these people and their work highly enough. If you feel you or you kids need more nature in your life (and we all do), need support to find healing or direction in your life, or just want to experience something wonderful, check them and their programs out!

The whispers of vision and the gratitude I feel for life is so strong. Old layers of pain, grief and suffering have moved and made space for the true essence of me. This Vision Quest for me is healing and truth at it’s most powerful, the disintegration of old ways of being making way for your soul to shine in the light that is it’s birthright.
Words cannot thank Kate and Sam enough for their guidance and love through this process. Their Humilty, integrity and huge hearts have inspired me deeply. Thank you for holding space for people like me to step into my life and vision with courage and a deeper honor for this earth.

The Vision Quest is a most precious and enriching experience. It has brought me in contact with myself and the magic and mystery all around me. I am in awe of the strength and clarity that continues to unfold inside of me.
— Petra H

Absolutely amazing!!!! Such a deep and powerful way to get in contact with The Creator, Mother Earth and your true self. Words can not properly express the gratitude I feel for the Vision Quest. Thank you
