About this trip

Two Virtual Meetings:

May 16 & May 30

4pm - 6pm EST.

We will be reading Susan Cain's

          Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking 

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Experience the book that started the Quiet Movement

“A smart, lively book about the value of silence and solitude.”—Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness


At least one-third of  the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike  self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It  is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we  owe many of the great contributions to society. 

In Quiet, Susan  Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how  much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal  throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to  permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful  introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in  solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps  into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched,  and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.

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.
