Backpacking in Beautiful Pisgah National Forest

Are you feeling lost? We can help you find your way. Join us for this four-day trip Backpacking in Beautiful Pisgah National Forest. A land of mile-high peaks, cascading waterfalls, and heavily forested slopes; in other words, solitude and splendor are found in the mountains of western North Carolina.

This trip designed for people in recovery to deepen their journey; to uncover their next steps. The trip provides space and time to turn inward. It is a time to recharge while developing goals and building skills. Immersion in nature creates the perfect container for growth and healing. That is to say, unplug and build community. Indeed, this trip would be a great beginning as part of the 6-Month Coaching program (coaching clients pay nothing to attend except for travels expenses). On the other hand, it can be a valuable introduction to the healing of nature on it own.

Many learning activities will be incorporated in the trip. In fact, it offers opportunities to learn new skills, challenge yourself and grow. Likewise, hands-on activities will be included each day, allowing individuals to challenge themselves. In fact, the skills gained transition well into everyday life. While engaged, participants will learn how to prepare for backpacking trips, nutrition, mindfulness, navigation skills, Leave No Trace, and more.

We will begin on the first morning with an opportunity to come together as a team, investigate the power of fire, and connect. Afterward, we will begin our journey in earnest. Finally, we will wrap up the trip on the afternoon will closing activities and ceremony.
