About this trip

We will be reading David Whyte's

     Crossing the Unknown Sea: Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity

Crossing the Unknown Sea is about reuniting the imagination with our day to day lives. For anyone who wants to deepen their connection to their life’s workor find out what their life’s work isthis book can help navigate the way. He asserts that too many people blindly trudge through a mediocre work life because so many “busy” tasks prevent significant reflection and analysis of job satisfaction. People often turn to spiritual practice or religion to nurture their souls, but overlook how work can actually be our greatest opportunity for discovery and growth.

Yosemite and the people in our group will forever hold a special place in my heart. Kelly and Alasdair created such a beautiful trip!! The attention to detail throughout the 10 day retreat made the trip so special and unlike anything I have ever attended. I had never backpacked before this and now I cannot wait to do it again! I felt fully supported while getting out of my comfort zone both physically and emotionally. I took away from this trip a powerful reconnection to myself and a deeper appreciation for nature and the wild. ... Oh, And the views were ASTONISHING!!!! Yosemite is stunning beyond words.

It’s hard to find the words that can truly describe how incredible this trip was to Yosemite. Kelly and Alasdair cultivated an environment where we all could feel physically and psychologically safe, not only guiding us through the beauty of the mountains but also helping us go inward and truly connect with your minds and bodies. I am so so grateful for their hard work, their encouragement, and their passion for their company’s mission. From the group meditations, yoga practices, hikes, food, little gifts, and so much more, everything was thought through to make sure our experience was wonderful. I 100% recommend this trip for anyone looking to reconnect with nature in a beautiful way that is challenging but so rewarding at the top. Thank you The Wild Within <3.

It was an incredibly eye-opening experience! The food was more than amazing, the conversations had and connections made were positively enriching. Perfect for my first time camping/trekking. 10/10!

Kelly, Lou and Alasdair honor every participant, have a gift of monitoring and adjusting the discussion so that deeper meanings are revealed, and quickly establish rapport that creates an environment of connections to the literature and readers. I look forward to book talks with these gifted teachers as the group talks their way into greater enlightenment.

Book Club is always an amazing experience. The zoom calls are truly something to be grateful for, it's wonderful getting together with like-minded people and learning from not only what the book can teach but what everyone's different perspectives can teach as well.
