We believe the greatest adventure of all is in living our one wild life—the life that is entirely our own and has been waiting for us since we were born. Wild Within was founded to help you step into that life. We support those on this journey through retreats, gatherings, courses and workshops. We draw upon the healing and transformative power of community, the wilderness, the journey and a wide range of ancient traditions and modern teachings to aid those who hear the call of the Wild Within.


A challenging, but rewarding and memorable experience. Alasdair and Lou were excellent guides on this trek, which consisted of 60+ miles through the backcountry of Yosemite. Yosemite, especially the backcountry, is a magical environment, and I appreciate Wild Within's efforts to enable individuals with varying degrees of backpacking history to experience this environment. Thanks Alasdair, Kelley, Lou and JR!

Regardless of the number participants, the conversation is always rich, thought provoking and fills the ninety minutes. A very welcoming community.

If you are curious, I suggest you go for it. If you're looking for a sign, look no further...just go for it. I felt very safe during my experience physically, emotionally, and mentally. ...seriously, go for it!

This trip was fantastic! Returning to Yosemite was a dream come true, and this trip provided a completely separate and distinct experience from the first Yosemite venture in every way. Unlike the first trip that was such a communal experience, this trip offered an introspective, individualized journey into the self in a much more remote section of the park. It was HARD, exhausting, and challenging in the best way possible. As always, the struggle paid off, offering plenty of reflective opportunities and rewards, leaving me, once again, wanting more of Yosemite. The scenery was AMAZING, and the small group of warrior companions was the perfect compliment to this trip. This trip has it all: almost 60 miles of hiking, over 10,000 feet of climbing, extraordinary views, beautiful mountain lakes, an amazing guide in Alasdair, delicious food (thanks Julie-Roxanne), and lots of love and support from Kelly. Thank you Wild Within for another amazing trip!

Deeply gratifying and powerful experience. For years now I've been plagued with questions as to how to embody a balanced masculine. This 8 week intensive journey took me into the depths of my own manhood and showed me things I hadn't even known were there. Feeling reinvigorated and more centered in my power. Getting the chance to connect with men from all different backgrounds and walks of life, and learn to love those men as my brothers as we held space for each other and simply offered to just "see" and be seen by the other was incredible medicine for me. Thank you Alasdair& Lou. The program the 2 of you put together was pure magic. Job well done. Also Brian, Mike, Carlos, Jason, Kyle, Vipul, and Tom. I'm truly grateful for every last one of you, my brothers. ✊🏽
