Come heal & reconnect on a 10-week journey connecting your nature to Nature.

Rewilding your Nature. Natural = Healthy

Come on a transformative 10-week journey that beckons you to rewild your nature and rediscover the symphony of your soul's connection with the natural world. In this immersive kit, we'll embark on a profound adventure that mirrors the cycles of growth, decay, and renewal found in the heart of the wilderness. Over these weeks, we'll uncover the threads that weave your essence into the tapestry of the Earth, merging ancient wisdom with modern science to heal nature inside and out.
In rewilding, we find healing not just for ourselves but also for the Earth, as we remember our deep interconnection with nature.
Robin Kimmerer

Embracing the Wild Within

During this transformative week, we'll delve into the wild recesses of your own being. Guided by eco-art therapy and immersive wilderness experiences, you'll confront the barriers that hinder your authentic connection to nature. Through creative expression and introspective practices, you'll uncover the layers of conditioning that have veiled your wild essence, releasing the inner rhythms that resonate with the heartbeat of the Earth.

Senses Awakened to Interconnection

We'll dive into the sensory symphony that nature composes. Through practices like blindfolded forest walks and mindful observation, you'll awaken dormant senses, uncovering the stories whispered by wind, rustling leaves, and babbling streams. As you fine-tune your senses, you'll attune yourself to the subtleties of the wild, enriching your connection to the living world.

Roots of Connection

Our journey begins by delving deep into the roots of your relationship with the world around you. Through nature walks, journaling, and guided meditation, you'll forge a profound bond with the land beneath your feet. Just as trees interlace their roots to share resources, you'll explore your interconnectedness with the ecosystem, planting the seeds of a lifelong kinship.

A Natural Approach

As we embark on the journey of rewilding, we embrace the transformative power of restoring and restorying our connection with nature. The benefits of rewilding extend to both human nature and the natural world, fostering a harmonious and thriving relationship between us and the environment. Throughout the course, participants will engage in hands-on experiences, nature walks, storytelling, and creative expression to deepen their connection with the land. The emphasis will be on fostering a sense of belonging, healing, and reciprocity with the earth, which can lead to profound healing and transformation of intergenerational land-based trauma.

Come on a Barefoot Path

As we embark on a 10-week journey, we shed the layers that separate us from the Earth – a barefoot ethic that resonates with the pulse of our footfall and heartbeat, echoing ancient origins and ancestors.

With each step, we'll rewrite the story of our connection to the land, embracing the vulnerability of bare soles and the resilience of awakened spirits.

What people are saying . . . 

Rites of passage lead to a life of greater authenticity, integrity, and intimacy. They offer a path of healing and transformation that is characterized by a greater love for life embodied in the image of the sunrise that marks the end of the passage on the third day with hope. Yet what you get from your passage will be unique to you. In a fundamental way, you get a new relationship with yourself and start to your life.
Our family healing rite of passage has been profound for me, facing the pain I caused, regaining harmony, feeling the love we all have for each other and our life, remembering and laughing together, all this has been a joyful transformation.
.I learned things about myself and from that made forward movement in healing which is great, huge and appreciated! 
ROP Participant
Dr. Taylor was able to walk us through a group dynamic with remarkable ease. I was concerned that it would be emotional and resurrect our historical conflict. We were able to move through obstacles and reunite as a family. It was a truly transformative process. 
My rite of passage opened me to a new perspective and a new love of life. 
ROP Participant
The family right of passage led by Dr. Heather Taylor-Zimmerman brought our family not simply closure on the past but a future. We were able to process old wounds and see each other in a new way. We have transformed our relationships to emerge with a deeper understanding, compassion and love for each other.
ROP Participant
The experience was transformative. My parents had not talked for decades and we had years of emotional trauma. I was hoping to simply be able to communicate with each other. What occurred far exceeded my expectations. We are not only able to communicate but my parents have become good friends. We were able to reclaim our family. 
ROP Participant

Deep need for eco-healing NOW

On rites of passage death is a meaningful metaphor that calls us to be healed and whole, reborn in a new image. There is something magic about confronting death that brings you closer to life. Confronting death and fear, makes us more alive and more in love with life. 

Why walk this path?

What people have experienced
Write your awesome label here.

Nature is the real instructor.

You are exploring the deep knowledge & wisdom of the land of your being to help you transform, healing to become whole. When you are in nature you are natural: yourself. You realize that you are not who you should be but who you were born to be & are. Nature helps you let go of limiting beliefs, patterns & expectations to claim the power, passion & purpose of who you really are. In this process of self-realization you are the instructor. As the saying goes: it's between you & You (your ensouled nature). So, find a natural place that calls to you.


Our orientation reflects the archetypal nature of rites of passage that has remained consistent throughout human history. Reflecting the collective wisdom of traditions from Jungian to indigenous, they help you create your own tradition and your own rite of passage to encircle you.

This is your eco-healing PATH

Your rite of passage reflects you--your values and identity. So, you get to design a ritual and ceremony to guide and honor your transformation. Building upon an archetypal structure that underlies rites of passage you get to pick how you experience your own. Is it in a forest or on the plains? Are you in a dwelling (cave, tent, cabin . . .) or out in the open? Unlike in the past when the way was determined by your culture and gender, you can design a rite of passage that reflects you through reflection exercises, journaling, guidelines, and self-generated ritual. We are here to help.

Guided by the wisdom of the seasons, we'll learn to forage insights from the earth, plant the seeds of ancient knowledge, and watch as our own growth mirrors the unfolding of the natural world. As we circle through this adventure, we'll uncover the untamed aspects of our souls, fostering a harmonious dance between the wild within and the wild without.

Circling Up

Rites of passage have been held for thousands of years but have been lost in the modern world. So, we gather in circle to help hold you and celebrate your transition from one state to another and from disease to greater health. We are offering ongoing courses remotely during the pandemic to help you find yourself and your way. Come gather. 

Creating structure: You are held in CIRCLE

Just as the earth orbits the sun in a circle in the heavens, the movements of heaven & earth move in circles.

Circles Hold Soul Space

Rewilding is a circular return to our nature.

It's truly enchanting how gathering in a circle amid nature can ignite a profound sense of connection and purpose. Just as the roots of ancient trees intertwine beneath the forest floor, these circles mirror our innate interconnectedness. When we come together with intention, the circle becomes a sacred space where stories are woven like leaves rustling in the wind. It's a dance of energies, where each individual is a thread, and the collective wisdom emerges as a tapestry of shared experiences. In the heart of nature's embrace, we are humbled by the cyclical rhythms that mirror our own journey of growth, death, and rebirth. The circle becomes a sanctuary where we listen to the whispers of the breeze and the wisdom of our souls, unraveling the knots of modern life to rediscover the ancient ties that bind us to one another and to the Earth.

Circles Move in Natural Time

Rewilding is a return to natural living.

As we step onto sacred ground, we step into a sacred choreography, where the dance of our souls meets the rhythm of the cosmos. Just as constellations paint stories across the night sky, these circles paint stories across our hearts. The purpose is woven with threads of healing and transformation, as we bring our vulnerabilities and strengths to the circle's center. In this embrace, nature becomes both mirror and guide, teaching us the art of being present and attuned. The circle's edge dissolves as barriers crumble, and we find ourselves face to face, heart to heart. It's a return to the primordial, a dance with the fire of our ancestors and the cool waters of forgotten springs. So, let us gather in this circle with the forest as witness, the mountains as sentinels, and the earth as cradle, as we seek to heal, learn, and unfold the symphony of our interconnected souls.

A circle of ONE

You are alone on the land

On the land & throughout this process you are fundamentally alone, reflecting on yourself & your life: between you & You.


You check in with a partner

As you rewild, you are held by a human partner as well as a non-human partner, whether a tree, stone, cat, deer or . . ?

A group CIRCLE

You are held within a circle

From beginning to end, you are held within the circle of the group to mirror & provide a container for your passage.

This does NOT have to be hard.

While rites of passage are traditionally rigorous, this does not have to be hard. What is more important is that your experience is meaningful and suited to you. This can mean staying in a cabin or a tent, out in the open or in a cave. Go within to follow your intuition and heart about where your rite of passage should take place and how long it should be. Each of these details is yours to decide. This is a reflection of you. 

Stages of your PASSAGE

There are 4 basic stages that you journey through to return back "home" to yourself.
Separation and Preparation
A time to separate from what you want to leave behind and move into your future, preparing for your passage.  
During separation you prepare for your journey by imagining what you want to leave behind, going through a life review to see where you have been and determine where you are going. It is a time to get real and let go.
On your rite of passage you pass through a threshold of transformation and initiation to claim your power.
In the stage of transformation you overcome limiting patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting as you set off on a ritual journey of self-empowerment, healing, and discovery. Transformation is the stage of deep change. 
As you come back from your rite of passage, you return to your life, integrating your new vision, power, and identity.
Integration is a time to gather and harvest the experiences, teachings, and gifts of your rite of passage and weave them into yourself and life. It is a stage of coming home in which you integrate the new elements of healing and growth.
Travelling into your life, you embrace the calling of your rite of passage and bring it more fully into the world.
Continuation is the path that goes ever on, as you move more fully into your vision and power, claiming your identity to give the gift of your calling and healing to the world. This is a life-long journey that continues on.

Passages heal you by making you whole.

This is a journey from your past to your present to envision your future, moving from separation and preparation to transformation and integration. This journey heals you in body and soul by making you whole. While it may not cure you, this is a healing journey that brings you peace and love, deepening your connection to life and your life. 

Nature is alive 

When we are in nature we come to life, realizing that not only nature but our nature is alive. We realize that we love life and are ready to live. Whether revealed through symbolic or synchronous experiences on the land or within your inner landscape as an inner vision or calling, your nature & nature work & play together to guide and transform you.

A power instrument

Reflecting traditions throughout the ages, you get to create a rattle or a drum to help hold your vision. Constructed throughout your journey, you draw or decorate your instrument with symbolic images from your initiatory journey, embodied in an instrument that empowers your life.

Create a necklace

Make a symbolic image

Decorate a carved wooden pendant with a power image and cover it with glass. Then string your necklace with leather. Supply packets are available for groups.

Create a drum

Make a power instrument

Create a drum as a power circle to hold you on your quest and remind you of your passage. Recommendations for drum supplies are available on request.

Create a rattle

Tell your story your way

Decorate a rattle to take with you to mark your passage, tell your story, and symbolize your new name and identity. Rattle packets are available for groups.

You create a power circle

Your power circle is a circle that supports you on the land and in your life. To reinforce this circle, we offer drum or rattle making. Following ancient traditions, we embody our visions and calling in instruments as people have for thousands of years. Like all of the aspects of your rite of passage, the creation of an instrument is done your way, if you want.

You are telling your story

Retelling your story in your own way has the power to transform you and your life, taking control of the narrative of your past and future. So, we begin by keeping a nature journal--a journal of our nature and nature. This journal helps us move through the stages as we self-reflect and grow.

Open to new growth 

What calls to you to heal? It could be the call of your ancestors and family lineage as much as your d. It could be your soul, a song of the bird, or the beauty of the sunrise. On this path you will leave patterns in your past to move more fully into your future. Separation, transformation, and integration lead you to transform yourself but also those around you. 

Being in nature helps you self-reflect

When you are in nature you get in touch with your nature, becoming natural. In the mirror of nature you discover your power and receive the gift of your name and calling. Whether in the song of a bird, a vision in the sunrise, or a synchronous discovery, nature teaches you.

You are gifted in circle.

On your rite of passage you are given the gift of understanding who you are and what you are called to do and be. Though each passage is unique, the purpose of the passage throughout time has been to transition and transform people from one state of development and consciousness to another, so they can offer their gift to the world and their community.

The gift of time is always available


Receive the gift of a name & calling

When you are on the land you often receive a vision and this leads to the revelation of a new name. From the Israelites in the wilderness to the native peoples of all lands, people have undergone this ritual of receiving a vision of their purpose & a name that reflects it. Whether you keep this name and purpose to yourself, it will become a core part of you.
