Into the Wild: Gros Morne, NL

Sep 14-20, 2020

7 days | Canada | Classic Explorations

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”
– John Muir

There is something about wild places that calls to us. Even while we live in ever expanding, ever more comfortably built environments, something draws us into the wild. What is this pull? What have we to learn in uninhabited and unexplored spaces? What is the relationship between the wild and wilderness? How does our understanding of the wild frame our responsibility to the environment? While we feel the pull of the wild, rarely do we heed its call – let alone take the time to consider such questions.

This September, join philosopher and nature advocate/lover/observer Wendy O’Brien as she explores both our individual and collective relationship with the wild – amidst the awe-inspiring beauty of Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. What better place to reflect on these questions than on the beautiful Bonne Bay, within the bountiful boreal forest, and atop a piece of the earth’s mantle, the astonishing Tablelands. Framed by shared readings, offering time for guided reflection, and creating space for shared inquiry, this trip provides an opportunity to explore the geography and history of a uniquely wild place – to develop a deeper understanding of the wild.

Dare to explore this beautiful, wild setting – to rethink what draws us to these places. Explore our place in the wild, and the place of the wild in our lives. Take up the challenge knowing, as Robert MacFarlane has remarked, that “wild places can kindle new ways of being.” Please join us!
